Dumont Aviation Group folds Prospair Jet Charter under its umbrella

The move follows the departure of ProspAir director Christopher Tasca who set up a competing jet card brokerage

Dumont jet cards start at $125,000 for 25 hours on a light jet, plus 7.5 percent FET

There is more change, fallout or however you want to describe it possibly related to the recent C-suite changes at Dumont Aviation Group.

ProspAir Jet Charter was launched in 2016 as a Dumont subsidiary under Christopher Tasca who was previously director of aviation solutions with Magellan Jets.

ProspAir’s launch accompanied Dumont’s rapid growth from a seller of airplane parts into a rapidly growing charter operator fueled by the acquisition of more than two-dozen Dassault Falcon 2000 large-cabin jets being retired by NetJets.

Jet Card Deal: Alliance Aviation offers 5 free hours with 50-hour jet cards

The 48-hour jet card sale ends midnight August 30th

Alliance Aviation, the jet card charter brokerage launched in July with several former Dumont Aviation Group executives, is offering five free hours when you buy 50 hours. The short-term 48-hour sale ends midnight on Aug. 30, 2019.

In terms of savings, the five free hours works out to a 10% bonus, so it is one of the highest value promotions we’ve seen. Typical discounts or bonuses range between 3-6%. What’s more, the emailed offer allows you to fund 25 hours now and 25 hours “later.”

Dumont Aviation, ousted CEO Wargo, trade lawsuits

The June exit of Dumont Aviation Group co-founder and chief executive Kevin Wargo has resulted in an exchange of lawsuits and accusations which now includes Alliance Aviation

Dumont alleges Alliance, launched by a former Dumont executive, is using confidential information and its website is registered to Wargo’s sister

Last year during the National Business Aviation Association’s annual conference in Orlando, former Dumont Aviation Group CEO Kevin Wargo seemed to be guiding the Delaware-based charter operator to a prominent position in the industry.

The company was monthly taking delivery of one to two former NetJets’ Dassault Falcon 2000 large-cabin jets. After refurbishing the cabins and upgrading avionics, Dumont looked poised to be a key player in the heavy jet market with what would be a floating fleet of two dozen of the 10-seaters.

A new jet card allows you to trade in your old private jet for flight hours

Alliance Aviation has joined with Encore Parts for the industry’s first-ever used aircraft trade-in program

Separately, the jet card broker launched a membership that pays interest on your deposit with flight credits

With a significant number of older private jets facing big upgrade costs to meet the compliance standards of ADS-B, or Automatic Dependence Surveillance-Broadcast, which go into effect in January, owners of those planes need to make decisions quickly.

For many, they will need to ground their jets as they look to buy new ones or perhaps hurry into a deal that doesn’t make sense.

Dumont Aviation names new chief operating officer

The charter operator named former Sikorsky exec Robert Flansburg as COO

Following the exit of its former CEO and several other executives in June, Delaware-based Dumont Aviation Group has named Robert Flansburg as chief operating officer. The company sells jet cards, fractional ownership, and on-demand charter, and has been in the news as it grows its fleet of the popular Dassault Falcon 2000.
