San Francisco, CA (June 24, 2015)

The first six months of 2015 have seen Solairus Aviation add fifteen new accounts to their nationwide fleet. The new additions include six Gulfstreams, six Dassault Falcons, two Bombardier Challengers, and a Learjet 60XR. Seven of these new aircraft are certified for Part 135 flight operations.

To help safely operate Solairus’ total fleet of nearly 90 aircraft, six new Client Aviation Managers (CAM), eight new Maintenance Supervisors, 14 new administrative staff members, and 36 new pilots have been added in the past six months.

Solairus’ San Francisco Bay Area headquarters was expanded 20% to accommodate these new team members and an all-new corporate office was opened in Purchase, NY, less than 15 minutes away from the popular Westchester County Airport in White Plains, NY.

Chairman and CEO, Dan Drohan, credits Solairus employees’ focused approach to aircraft management for the company’s recent growth.

“Solairus’ continued year-over-year and year to date growth can be attributed to one very simple thing: our team members’ unwavering commitment to providing outstanding aviation services to the world’s most discerning families and businesses,” Drohan stated. “We have never believed in expanding our fleet just for the sake of expansion itself, so we carefully evaluate prospective clients to ensure that we are the best fit for their needs. Tempered, organic, and strategic growth focused on safety and service defines our success.”

“Ultimately, this is a people business, and quality over quantity is paramount. We would not be where we are today without the dedicated commitment and passion of our incredible employees. They have made Solairus’ continued growth possible by earning and keeping all of our clients’ trust, and I am extremely proud of their accomplishments.”
