Dumont Group is a name you will be hearing more about in the jet card and management space

Dumont Falcon 2000

The Delaware-based company is expanding beyond parts and maintenance, growing its charter operations via ownership and management, and ramping up its Santos Jet Card program alongside its ProspAir Jet Charter brokerage cards


In the world of private aviation, Dumont Group is best known for parts and maintenance, often buying used aircraft for components that can be used as replacements. That has been changing for a while and will be even more so – in a big way. As the company expands its aircraft management, it is becoming a well-sized charter operator owning and operating aircraft as well as operating and managing aircraft for owners, some who use the jets exclusively for themselves and others who allow Dumont to sell charter trips on them.
