Jet Access Aviation acquires Arcadia Aviation

Jet Access Aviation has announced the acquisition of all of Arcadia Aviation’s assets, excluding two FBOs and the Part 145 Repair station, following a six-month acquisition procedure.

The combined company will be called Jet Access Aviation and will continue to offer professional financial management, charter and aircraft management services, aircraft sales and charter brokerage service.

Jack E. Lambert, Jr. President of Jet Access Aviation, said, "I am very proud of the work our team has done to make this transition a smooth one. The feedback we have received from the aviation community has been positive, reflecting the respect that exists both for Jet Access Aviation and the Arcadia operation we have acquired.

"We believe this acquisition allows Jet Access to fill an important niche in the industry – namely an aircraft management company that is non-traditional in its approach by being more creative and thinking outside the box.”

Shawn Honaker, CEO of Jet Access Aviation, added, "Coupling Arcadia's experience and reputation for service with Jet Access Aviation’s history as an innovator in private jet utilization is a natural fit for the customers who have counted on Arcadia and Jet Access Aviation. This acquisition is an important step for our future and we are very excited about the opportunity."

Tom Mealie, the VP of Maintenance Operations, said, "Arcadia has always had outstanding operational programs and with the combination of Jet Access' management abilities, we can bring a complete management solution to the table".
