Privion Jets started out in 1996 originally known as Santa Barbara Executive Jet. In 2014 we decided to change our corporate identity to better convey our passion for what we do: Private Aviation. We are the antithesis of big-box charter management companies. Our business model emphasizes a boutique operation that enables us to focus on our very important clientele. We specialize in exceptional personal service while keeping our focal point about quality and safe operations. The blueprint of the Privion Jets team is integrity, experience, great attitude, and talent. Adopting this ethos ensures all of all our clients receive the exquisite service they deserve. This is what shapes our corporate culture.
“Bryan Wullner and his team at Privion Jets are the Bacara of aircraft management companies.”
