Brian Moss, a Solairus Aviation Private Charter Jet VP, was recently selected as Air BP’s Aviation Professional of the month. Brian was featured in a full page print ad, along with nearly the entire Solairus Burlingame office staff in the December 2011 issue of Professional Pilot.
Brian Moss grew up in an aviation environment. His dad, Don, was a dispatcher for Pan Am at JFK in the 1960s. While in college Brian worked for an FBO at FRG (Farmingdale NY). Computers were his college study field and following graduation the thrill of the burgeoning Internet industry attracted him to Silicon Valley. For 7 years he worked there. But the pull of aviation was too strong. His dad owned Long Island-based Sportsflight, a charter jet sales organization for sports teams. Brian went to Sportsflight’s SFO office and sold charter. In 2007 he transferred to TAG at SFO and continued to sell charter jet flights. Brian joined Solairus in 2009 and became a flight coordinator. The following year he moved to Denver to open a Solairus office at APA (Centennial, Denver CO). Today Brian manages 5 aircraft from APA—a Gulfstream G550 based at SFO, a Challenger 604 headquartered at AUS (Austin TX), another 604 and 605 tied down at BFI (Boeing Field, Seattle WA) and a Hawker 800XP at MDW (Midway, Chicago IL). Brian arranges all logistics for crew and pax including ground transportation, lodging, FBOs and catering. Chris Halverson, Solairus manager of flight coordination and dispatch, says, “Brian’s sunny disposition and customer focus come shining through on every charter jet flight.”
