Chicago-based brokerage firm SOLJETS announced its launch on Jan. 20, stating that its goal is to bring more people into the world of high-performance aircraft ownership.
“We don’t just sell aircraft, we actively help our clients develop a comprehensive ownership plan that includes not only the aircraft, but also crew staffing, training, insurance, finance, and maintenance,” said company partner and firm president Matt Stringfellow.
SOLJETS is manned by Stringfellow and two other partners—David Lee and Greg Oswald. “First-time turbine and jet owners need a helping hand, not a high pressure sales pitch,” said Lee. Oswald stated that “we’ve learned through numerous transactions what can go wrong and how to stay in front of it. For us, professionalism is front and center.”
Together, SOLJETS has four decades of aircraft sales experience in addition to 15,000 hours of flight time. In addition to an office in Chicago, it has branches in Atlanta and Park City, Utah. Kevin Wilkerson, a SOLJETS client who purchased a Citation Mustang, said that the company partners were like “ESPN commentators when it comes to knowing the ins and outs of what’s happening in the industry.”
