The question come up from time to time: "Why Plane Connection?"
The answer is actually really simple - we love aviation. And it's not just one facet of aviation that we love. We love fighter jets just as much as we love Cessna 150's. So why are we doing what we do?
Well here is how it started. Steven and I met when he was looking for ATP study material during the ATP Written crunch of 2014. I was working at the local flight school in New Bern, NC and so we got to talking and quickly connected in the disparity of aviation and how disconnected most people are with the benefits of airplanes. We started talking about the possibilities of connecting people in Eastern North Carolina and the Outer Banks though small aircraft on floats. Well it didn't take long to light a fire under Steven, or me for that matter.
Plane Connection LLC was started in Sept of 2014 to connect people with everything aviation. It's been a crazy ride since with the struggles of a small aviation start up with lacking financial backing. But having gone through our share of promising investors and start-up heart burn, Plane Connection has weathered those storms quite well. And we are developing our team and growing our capacity to handle Aircraft Management, Contract Flight Services and Charter Brokerage.
And there is exciting news on the horizon so check back with us for that!!
