From October 10-12, 2011, Magellan Jets proudly attended NBAA’s (National Business Aviation Association) conference which was held in Las Vegas, Nevada. For the aviation industry insiders, this annual event is imperative to attend for both networking and educational purposes alike. As a business tool, this convention yields amazing results for well-respected operators and industry specialists to unite. Buying decisions are weighed and executed at the NBAA and the relationships formed set the stage for the upcoming year. Magellan Jets spent the first day on the convention floor, interacting with exhibitors and other attendees. On Tuesday, they moved onto the Static Display of Aircraft at Henderson Executive Airport where the latest aircraft models were present for the attendees to view and explore.
CEO of Magellan Jets, Joshua Hebert, and Anthony Tivnan, President of Magellan Jets, spent their time meeting with the press. They provided the media with updates on Magellan Jets and their hopes for the coming year. Recently, Magellan Jets announced their plan to provide students and families in China with private jet transportation to the U.S., elite concierge services and top-tier medical expertise. Mr. Hebert was able to give insight on Magellan Jets’ expansion into the Chinese market, “We are thrilled to be able to enter into the private aviation market in China,” says Magellan Jets CEO, Joshua Hebert. “We would like to be the trusted source of establishing Chinese students and families.”
Mr. Tivnan specifically spoke about the Magellan Jets One-Way Leg Search (OWL) app which is now available on your iPhone and iPad. With this revolutionary app, you are able to search, select and book empty leg flights in the palm of your hand. Magellan Jets has implemented the use of a new technology called DocuSign. With DocuSign, clients can review their contract on their iPhone and sign with their finger on their touch screen. The contract is e-mailed back to Magellan Jets and the trip has been booked, hassle free. This seamless scenario has made flying privately with Magellan Jets ultra-appealing. “O.W.L. Search provides the instant gratification our clients have been yearning for, which is an incredible thing,” says company President, Anthony Tivnan.
The 2011 NBAA Convention was an incredible experience for all members of Magellan Jets. While the trip was filled with fun and networking for company members, it was a great way to showcase Magellan’s latest endeavors. Magellan Jets’ introduction of their iPhone app, fused with the technology of DocuSign and their entry into the Chinese market garnered attention and respect from peers in the industry and truly positioned Magellan as a leader amongst private charter brokers.
