Jet Linx, the only locally-focused, global private aviation company providing aircraft management, joint ownership and Jet Card membership services through its 20 locations nationwide, has announced the promotion of Jay Vidlak from Senior Vice President to Senior Vice President, Aircraft Acquisition and Sales.

Created as part of an ongoing growth and expansion strategy for Jet Linx, the SVP of Aircraft Acquisition and Sales is responsible for streamlining and optimizing the owner experience for the Company’s Joint Ownership and industry-first Complete Aircraft Transaction (CAT) programs.

Mr. Vidlak will work closely with the Company’s trusted aircraft broker partners, backed by Jet Linx turnkey private jet inventory, to identify aircraft for new aircraft owners or current owners seeking an aircraft upgrade.

The announcement was made by Jamie Walker, President and Chief Executive Officer of Jet Linx.

“We are thrilled to announce Jay’s new role with Jet Linx, following his many years of impactful contributions for the company,” said Mr. Walker.

“Jay is a distinguished leader and absolutely instrumental to our growth as we continue to expand through strategic M&A activity, new Base locations and fleet growth in order to continue meeting the increased demand for private jet ownership solutions.”

Mr. Vidlak, who has been with Jet Linx for nearly 20 years, most recently served as Senior Vice President, where he was responsible for overseeing the day-to-day activity of seven Base locations.

Mr. Vidlak began his career with Jet Linx in 2002 following his education in Aviation Studies at the University of Nebraska Omaha and subsequent four years with Mayo Aviation. 

“It is an honor to assume this new role with Jet Linx as we embark on this next phase of growth,” said Mr. Vidlak.

“I have been fortunate to watch the company redefine and elevate the private aviation experience for both aircraft owners and private jet travelers over the years.
