VAN NUYS, Calif. — SoCal Jets is celebrating its 30th anniversary in business.
Officials at the corporate aircraft maintenance facility at Van Nuys Airport (VNY) say one of the secrets to the company’s longevity is that it employs “exceptional” corporate aircraft technicians, each of whom hold a minimum of 12 years of professional experience, along with FAA and A&P certificates.
SoCal Jets services a wide variety of aircraft at its 18,000-square-foot facility, including Gulfstream, Challenger, Falcon, Hawker, Learjet, Citation, Westwind, King Air, and Astra. The company also supports many aircraft in Mexico, and is one of just a handful of U.S. companies to have received certification from the Mexican DGAC, according to officials.
With 30 years under its operational belt, SoCal Jets now looks to the future – with plans to take the business to the next level, according to owner Robert Roig.
“We’re always looking to add new people with exceptional passion and experience to the SoCal Jets team,” said Roig. “We’ve come a long way in 30 years, but we envision even greater growth over the next several decades.”
