“Integrity isn’t a buzzword,” Magellan Jets co-founder and CEO Joshua Hebert says in EQ Magazine’s new feature on the premier private jet services provider. Throughout the piece, written by Emily Bunn and titled “Magellan Jets’ Skyward Success,” Hebert discusses the integrity of Magellan Jets’ mission to transform the private jet industry in the areas of aviation safety, sustainable flying, elevated service, and even alternatively-powered aircraft.
The piece focuses on Magellan Jets’ skyrocketing growth over the past two years, despite the company having “to adjust to limited aircraft availability, high demand, and of course, virus restrictions.” As Magellan announced earlier this year, gross revenue grew to $80 million in 2021 and is projected to reach $115 million for 2022. “Over the last two years, during COVID, we’ve spent more money on content and on keeping customers informed than we ever have before,” Hebert said.
Hebert discussed the reasons he got into private aviation:
“When I got into this business 22 years ago, it was a very private business,” outlines the CEO, acknowledging that at the time, many people didn’t have access to private aviation and its advantages. Citing issues including traffic congestion in ground transportation, Hebert started Magellan in hopes of finding a more convenient and customized travel solution.
“Elon Musk thinks we’re going to get around those problems by digging under the Earth. Well, I grew up watching George Jetson in his flying car, so I believe the answer is in the sky, not underground,” Hebert rebuts. “We founded Magellan Jets in 2008 to offer personalized, purely private aviation solutions that make our guests’ lives easier. All these years later, we’re still listening to the customer and innovating on their behalf.”
The EQ feature also discusses the various ways to fly private with Magellan, including Jet Card Ownership, award-winning Private Jet Membership, and on-demand Charter; what Magellan Jets has done to stand out in a crowded market; and the potential for growth in the field of sustainable, alternatively powered aircraft.
