Aviation Company Desert Jet Honored as One of Entrepreneur Magazine’s Inaugural Entrepreneur 360 Award Winners
Palm Springs, California – Oct. 22, 2015 – Desert Jet (www.desertjet.com), a group of aircraft management, charter and maintenance companies based in Palm Springs, California, announced today that they have been recognized by Entrepreneur Magazine in its inaugural Entrepreneur 360 awards as one of the “Best Entrepreneurial Companies in America.”
Conducted through in-depth surveys and research, the team of editors and researchers behind the E360 Performance Index, in partnership with the Business Dynamics Research Consortium, collected more than 250 pieces of data from hundreds of companies, focusing on growth drivers and challenges, goal setting, resource allocations, and reward systems. This analysis uncovered a subset of companies whose continued success is largely based on superior value creation for their customers, building an adaptive learning culture, and aggressive geographic expansion—making them the most dynamic firms in America today. Those companies have been designated the “Best Entrepreneurial Companies in America” for 2015 by Entrepreneur.
“Those honored have identified a problem, come up with a unique solution, and bravely built their enterprises around it,” says Ryan Shea, president of Entrepreneur Media. “They’ve accomplished new ways of producing sustainable growth and are an inspiration to others who want to fulfill their own entrepreneurial goals.”
Desert Jet was founded in 2007 to address the private aviation needs of flyers that value time and increased productivity without the hassles and inconvenience of airline travel. Structured as the “private car service of the sky”, private flyers can use Desert Jet’s services as they need, with no commitments to buy a fractional share, jet card or membership. To offer this service, Desert Jet partnered with aircraft owners to utilize the unused capacity of the thousands of business jets based across the country. Aircraft owners are able to offset their costs of ownership of their asset through the revenue earned in Desert Jet’s charter service and enjoy the benefits of fleet efficiencies including reduction in operating costs and increase in safety, training and compliance innovations that an individual owner typically cannot access. Desert Jet has also built support services that allow a turn-key service for aircraft owners – from representation in an acquisition or sale, to the maintenance of the jet, providing a flight crew, and all ground handling including hangar parking and jet fuel sales.
“The companies identified in the E360 Index are sustained growers, and based on our research, have proven adept at navigating the changing challenges of their marketplace to win new business and grow their output capacity year after year,” says Gary Kunkle, senior research fellow at the Business Dynamics Research Consortium and research partner of the E360 Performance Index.
“While each company was founded by individuals driven by unique visions of how to create higher value for customers in both emerging and mature industries, it’s through extraordinary implementation that they have achieved lasting success,” says Lisa Murray, Chief Insights Officer of Entrepreneur Media, Inc.
