Who We Are
We established Pierce Aviation in 2007 with the delivery of one of the first Eclipse Jets in the industry. Our goal was to provide the most comprehensive jet management service in the country, and, today, we have a fleet of Eclipses, along with several other turbo-prop and jet platforms, that we professionally manage for multiple owners and partnership groups.
We pride ourselves on being a full-service flight department for our aircraft owners and, to that end, operate a full-service FBO with all the logistics and services you’d expect in a premium private air terminal. We also have a full-service maintenance shop with full inspection and parts capability, and, through our proprietary, on-line flight scheduler software, the most reliable and user-friendly dispatch system you’ll find for your travel planning and trips.
We also have some of the most experienced aircrews in the industry, with over 8,000 hours of operational experience on an array of jet and turbo-prop platforms. In fact, three of the four highest-time Eclipse pilots in the world can be found right here. That’s peace-of- mind and safety that you can’t find anywhere else in the industry.
Finally, because of our vertical integration of all services “FBO through Crew”, we have the capability to manage your jet at a cost structure far below what you can accomplish on your own, and much more efficiently than other jet management companies that outsource their core services of FBO-support, maintenance and crew. And, being part of our fleet, you’ll never have to cancel a trip for maintenance as we manage reciprocal leases among our owners to ensure your schedule is never compromised.
Now, that’s a one-stop, jet management shop.
— Gary Blossman, Abita Brewing CompanyThe reciprocal lease program made available to me through Pierce Aviation empowers me, as a shared aircraft owner, with the flexibility of a sole owner. With Pierce Aviation working for me, I know my aircraft and flight crew will always be available when and where I need them.
— Gary Smith, Magnolia HoldingsThe staff at Pierce Aviation has made our Eclipse ownership a true joy. From dispatch through maintenance, we are continually impressed with their professionalism and thoroughness. These guys really care and truly love our Eclipse as much as we do.
