Projects Completed


I’ve consulted with VanAllen a few times over the years regarding our flight department and their staff has helped us navigate some of the common pitfalls of business aviation. Managing a corporate flight department is more than just flying from A to B, and their combined experience enables them to efficiently fine tune a department into the best it can be. Whether it’s talent acquisition, ISBAO, or finding which aircraft suits the mission best (to name a few), I would recommend them. They are super smart, yet able to keep it simple, which is good for a Georgia boy like me. Their subject matter expertise is unparalleled within the industry.”
