Safe, Reliable, and Efficient Management for Aircraft Owners.

Solairus utilizes a service delivery model that its management team developed over many years of experience. One of the keys to its proven success is dedicating highly experienced professionals to each client’s account and having an organizational structure that supports decentralized customer service delivery.

Culture of Safety
All the services we provide to support you and your aircraft revolve around safety – our number one priority. Solairus has a dedicated safety department which is focused on continually monitoring flight operations, managing our flight crew training programs and promoting safety throughout the company. We have regularly scheduled meetings of our Safety Committee, which is comprised of staff members from every department in the company. Finally, Solairus utilizes the Safety Management System (SMS) tools provided by ARG/US to enhance our safety practices delivered to our aircraft owners.

Fleet Discount Savings

Solairus has leveraged its position as a large provider of aviation services, and its long-term vendor relationships, to negotiate extremely favorable fleet discount programs. Solairus currently has major programs in place covering fuel, maintenance, crew training and insurance. The savings that Solairus’ fleet discount programs offer will largely offset, and in many instances more than fully cover, the annual services fee charged for our support services.

The Charter Ally program offers a cost effective solution for aircraft owners who want their own flight department yet are interested in offsetting some of the costs of ownership through charter.

We are able to offer sustainable, long-term charter revenue for aircraft owners with such an interest. We can customize a charter plan for each aircraft owner that balances aircraft availability requirements with a desired charter revenue target.

Solairus has leveraged its position as a large provider of aviation services and its long-term vendor relationships to negotiate extremely favorable fleet discount programs. Solairus currently has major programs in place covering fuel, crew training, insurance and outside maintenance. The savings from Solairus Aviation’s fleet discount programs are available to our Charter Ally aircraft and will provide significant cost reductions.

Charter Sales and Marketing

Our charter sales team consists of professionals strategically located across the country.

To lead our retail sales efforts, we employ business development personnel across the country. Currently, we are represented in San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York, Boston, and Philadelphia. These experienced sales professionals are specifically tasked with finding, developing, and managing clientele for each of our charter aircraft.

Our charter operations “back office” is staffed with dedicated charter sales and service personnel, available 24/7, and responsible for determining the proper solution for any travel need, both domestic and international. These individuals have years of experience generating leads, qualifying prospects and closing business in the charter market. Additionally, these people manage the accounts that Solairus has established with most of the large brokers, charter operators, and fractional ownership companies in order to generate additional demand for our charter fleet.

Finally, our Charter Client Services Director is solely responsible for the delivery of 5-Star service to our charter clients, each and every trip. From standard stock, to customized menus, crew appearance, customer service training and delivery, this person is responsible for all aspects of service delivery. Solairus believes that it is truly unique in its commitment to this role, within the charter industry.

Cost Savings for In-House Flight Departments

The Solairus purchasing group has developed programs that leverage the buying power derived from a fleet of over one hundred aircraft as well as long-term vendor relationships. This enables Solairus to deliver significant cost savings on fuel, insurance, crew training, and maintenance to our Part 91 Allies that utilize their own flight departments.

Crew Training

Your crew will be trained by the Training Officer and Maintenance Director in FAR Part 135 procedures along with a thorough review of Solairus Aviation Operations and Maintenance Manuals. Training includes both initial and recurrent ground training.
