Solairus Aviation’s Light Jet and Turboprop Management Program can strengthen any aircraft owner’s flight department by offering industry-leading operational, fiscal and safety oversight, extensive budgetary savings and the opportunity to offset some of the costs of ownership through charter.
We have identified specific processes and strengths that we now know allow us to offer Light Jet and Turboprop aircraft owners the ability to customize the level of support needed to maximize the return on your aviation investment.
A Solairus senior executive will be assigned to your account to ensure high-touch customer service. You will have direct access to your representative at all times, and he/she has the authority to respond immediately to any of your questions or concerns.
The foundation of the Light Jet and Turboprop Management program is the integration of your aircraft into our flight management system, providing access to our processes and procedures, safety management system (SMS), maintenance tracking integration, dispatch services and flight tracking. Our Flight Operations and Maintenance teams have codified our best-practices into a complete set of operating manuals; guidelines and processes followed by all flight crew and maintenance technicians.
Additionally, Preferred Core Service aircraft have access to all of the economic advantages provided to Solairus’ fully managed fleet. These would include significant market discounts for fuel, crew training, insurance, wi-fi, as well as many other goods and services.

Crew Recruiting & Employment
Selection of individual team members to serve in roles as pilots or maintenance supervisors is critical to the successful delivery of our service.
Solairus provides employment of, and overall HR responsibility for, all crew members, thus providing an arm’s length relationship legally for our clients. Given the ever-changing world of employer liability, the unique nature of the work done by flight crew and the fact that we employ over 500 of these personnel, we believe we are uniquely suited for taking on this responsibility. We also believe that this relationship makes clear each team member’s ultimate responsibility for service delivery.
