Behind the Scenes at jetAVIVA: Sales Team/ CEO – Tim White


January 1, 2021

As company CEO, Tim White truly embodies the spirit of our slogan: “Life Is Short. Fly a Jet.” His willingness to lean in to uncertainty, live for the journey, and seek out the next great adventure with a smile on his face – and a high-five for his friends – is truly what we are all about at jetAVIVA

Tim’s celebrated career in aviation has seen him rise to leadership roles at Cessna and Bombardier, take a leap of faith to leave the corporate world and buy a small aircraft sales company and then again embrace opportunity when his company, Kansas Aircraft Corporation was merged with jetAVIVA.

Today, Tim helps clients navigate the complex process of buying and selling aircraft, and is our expert in the Citation CJ4, and CJ, CJ1, and CJ1+ markets. He led the firm in total volume of transactions with 27 completed in 2020, and had the time to move his home from Kansas City, to Northwest Arkansas!

Now Tim and his wife Dianne are exploring all Bentonville has to offer, including their flying club, Beaver Lake, and hiking the Ozarks. They are proud parents to Erin, artist and professional esthetician who has a strong client following in the Kansas City area, and Abby who is in the final stages of Naval Flight Training and is on a course to serve the United States in either the F/A-18 Super Hornet or F-35 Lightning II.
