Based in Charlotte, NC, Jet Logistics is nearing its 20th anniversary in the general aviation industry and over the past decade has developed a reputation as a sector leader in fixed-wing air medical and special Ops transport programs for a long list of global leading commercial and government clients under its “AeroMedOPS™” division. The company specializes in twin turbine-jet aircraft but maintains operational capabilities for most any aircraft type, and operates missions both domestically/CONUS and internationally/OCONUS on a 24/7/365 basis – examples of major markets and niche regional destinations reached in just the past 6 months include: Azores, Africa (Algeria, Cameroon, Kenya), Pacific/Hawaii, Europe, Middle East (Israel, Kuwait), Central/South America, Mexico and Canada.
JLI Group Founder and President W. Ashley Smith, Jr. stated, “We’ve certainly seen significant change and growth in our international operations over the years as our company has grown and evolved to meet the shifting globalization of the healthcare market.” Smith, Jr., continued, “I attribute much of our success to adapting successfully to those trends. Rapid consolidation thru out the air medical industry has resulted in medical providers having fewer operator choices amongst large corporations with extremely broad interests. In contrast, since we started our AeroMedOPS™ and GovOPS™ divisions, Jet Logistics has always focused on our ability to service clients in a much swifter manner to deliver greater customer care - cost–efficiently, and with more specialized transport logistics capabilities than most others.”
When evaluating the expanding global air medical transport marketplace, Jet Logistics Senior Director of Business Development Eric Giangiordano says that data indicates significant value for the company's client partners derives from several factors: “Jet Logistics (a) has been established and operating successfully for nearly 20 years (b) offers a proven and extensive global air operations record (c) has maintained the most demanding global operator accreditations/certifications available. Examples include IS-BAO Stage 3, U.S. Department of Defense CARB, specialized government agency approvals (ex. - Cuba), FAA Worldwide Op-specs, HLA - High Level Airspace certification (formerly North Atlantic Track/MNPS) and more.”
In short, when a commercial or government medical organization needs an operational partner to help develop, manage and operate custom domestic and global fixed-wing air transport programs, “leading organizations like JetWay, AirEMS, or the U.S. Department of Defense each have unique logistical demands for diverse worldwide air medical transport expertise - and have relied upon Jet Logistics as we continue to focus on expanding our capabilities in that sector,” concluded Smith, Jr.
