JetSwiss The Company

Our Vision

JetSwiss is involved in sales and business development every day. From our perspective, an effective sales process is about sharing your company’s great talents and strengths and connecting powerfully with those who are a strong fit to your efforts in terms of values, approach, style and outcomes. We strive to be open, honest, and transparent about who we are and what we deliver. By incorporating these principles, while serving as an effective listener, decision-maker and team-builder, we help our customers achieve results they want and need.

When we started JetSwiss it was not hard to formulate what the company was going to be about.  Obviously Pilatus was our focus, but more importantly, taking our core beliefs, values, and past business experiences helped form our founding principles.  We strive to keep these in the forefront of our daily lives and practices. Say what you mean, mean what you say...

Our Expertise

JetSwiss is an aircraft specialization firm. We’ve drawn upon our years of experience to construct a laser precision approach to aircraft sales, management, and operations. By exemplifying our strengths it allows us to harness 100% of our focus and energy on the Pilatus aircraft itself and each individual Pilatus customer.

We have lived Pilatus since 1998. Our flight log book dates back to the very first production PC-12 (sn 101). We have grown intimately with the Pilatus factory and dealer networks. For instance, we were there in the early days when almost every system was constantly under review or improvement; to the original Honeywell Apex presentation on the NG system; to current systems on the aircraft. Simply put, JetSwiss has traveled through the many chapters in the book of Pilatus.
