ProJet Aviation "The value of time, the wonder of flight."
ProJet Aviation is the DC metro region's premier private aviation hospitality company, dedicated to helping people accomplish extraordinary things through the wonder of flight. ProJet provides a world-class flight support/FBO experience including arrival and departure services, fueling, and facilities leasing at Leesburg Executive Airport (KJYO), the private aviation gateway to Washington DC, the Dulles Technology Corridor, and Virginia's Horse & Wine Country. Founded in 2007 as a partnership between former airline pilot entrepreneur Shye Gilad, and noted entrepreneur and philanthropist Sheila C. Johnson, Founder & CEO of Salamander Hotels and Resorts, ProJet’s “aviation hospitality” mindset combines the operational integrity of the world’s best airlines with the refined service of a world class resort. ProJet is the host sponsor of the annual Aviation Education & Career Expo, which provides an aviation and aerospace forum for thousands of students in the Mid-Atlantic Region, and has awarded hundreds of thousands of dollars in scholarships since its inception. ProJet’s numerous accolades include recognition as one of the top FBOs in the country in the fltplan.com Pilots’ Choice Awards, a Washington Business Journal Best Place to Work, and an Inc. 5000 Fastest Growing Company.

The vision for ProJet began in 2006 by a small group of airline pilots who wanted to create a private jet company where service comes first. In 2007 they found the ideal partner in Salamander Hotels & Resorts, a company specializing in the management of independent luxury hotels, resorts and fine food establishments. Today ProJet Aviation is an award-winning aviation service company, operating a growing fleet of professionally managed aircraft focused primarily in the Washington DC Metropolitan Area.

Mission: To find new ways to add value to life through the wonder of flight.

ProJet would like to thank Mitch V for the wonderful and kind feedback!

"I just wanted to thank you for a very nice experience this past Sunday. We arrived (and left) in the pouring rain, but thanks to the great staff, we hardly noticed. We were met with our rental car, umbrellas, and friendly smiles. I noticed that your parking spots of tie downs, which these days are sadly missing on many transient parking spots."
