CEO of Jet Linx Aviation, Jamie Walker, celebrates two decades of growth during his tenure at the private aviation provider.
Jet Linx President and CEO Jamie Walker is celebrating his 20 years at the Omaha, Nebraska-based private aviation provider.
Under his leadership, the company has grown from a dozen total team members to over 585 and from eight pilots to more than 265.
Its owned and managed fleet has grown to over 110 private jets.
It currently ranks as the eighth-largest operator in the U.S. based on fractional and charter flight hours.
The company has also expanded its network of private terminals for aircraft owners and members of its jet card program.
Its most recent location opened in Miami last year.
Walker joined Jet Linx in 2002 as its Director of Sales & Marketing alongside his father, Denny Walker, who founded the Company in 1999.
In 2004, it launched one of the first operator-backed jet cards.
He has served in his current position since 2007.
Under Walker, Jet Linx debuted in 2017 its annual Jet Linx Safety Summit, an annual all-hands conference to focus on safety.
Every year, Jet Linx voluntarily grounds its fleet and ceases retail flight operations for a full business day, allowing for a company-wide assembly to examine and improve safety practices and standards.
The operator has also attained to safety ratings from IS-BAO, Argus, and Wyvern.
In terms of philanthropy, Jet Linx has supported The Tutu Project, which provides everything from wigs and lymphedema sleeves to transportation, childcare, and counseling to families impacted by a breast cancer diagnosis.
In 2022, the company celebrated its eighth year in partnership with this outstanding nonprofit organization.
