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.

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.

Two Top Executives Exit Dumont Group

The Delaware-based charter operator and its jet card subsidiary have cut a high profile with a growing fleet of Falcon 2000s acquired from NetJets

Kevin Wargo, the CEO at Delaware-based Dumont Group and Christopher Tasca who served as the director at its ProspAir on-demand charter and jet card unit, have both left the company, an official confirmed.
