Solairus Chairman and CEO, Dan Drohan, is currently featured in the 2012 Fourth Quarter edition of the Aviation Business Journal, the official publication of the National Air Transportation Association. Speaking with Paul Seidenman and David J. Spanovich, Drohan explains Solairus’ meteoric rise in the Private Jet industry as well as outlying his vision for the company’s future:
In the hyper competitive world of on-demand charter and aircraft management, Solairus Aviation Chairman and CEO Dan Drohan makes it perfectly clear that he will not sacrifice quality for market share. “That’s the paradigm we are working very hard to avoid at Solairus Aviation,” he stated. So far, he has succeeded. Despite the formidable industry headwinds, Solairus Aviation has managed to generate an enviable rate of growth in little more than the three years since it was founded in May 2009 by Drohan and two partners. With between 250 and 300 full- and part-time employees, the Petaluma, California-based company now has a satellite office in Burlingame, just south of San Francisco International Airport, as well as sales and flight coordination offices in Houston, New York, Boca Raton, Seattle and Denver.
