Executive Aircraft Sales

Location: Palm Springs, CA

Type: Full Time

Min. Experience: Experienced

You are a business aviation sales executive experienced in working with corporations, entrepreneurs and/or high net worth individuals to ensure their private travel options make sense.  You have both the empathy to understand the needs of the aircraft owner and the financial savviness to understand how to present the most cost-effective management scenarios.  You may have experience in the acquisition and sales of jet aircraft, or you’ve been responsible for the management of aircraft.  Either way, you are ready for a position where you can create your own success while contributing to the growth of a small company focused on culture, safety and the customer experience.

Desert Jet is seeking an Executive Aircraft Sales Director to expand its managed fleet of aircraft.  In this role, your primary responsibility will be to develop new aircraft management clients and assist our current charter customers with acquisitions as they move up to aircraft ownership.

Your role will involve developing relationships with potential clients, who are:

  • Aircraft owners looking for ways to drive down costs, while improving safety and reliability
  • Aircraft owners that want to put their aircraft to work earning revenue when it would otherwise be underutilized
  • High net worth/high profile individuals and the small and large corporations that use private aviation to accomplish more with less time through aircraft ownership
