Moline, IL, October 20th, 2014 – Elliott Aviation, a leader in a diverse set of aviation services, today announced the launch of Elliott Jets, the newly branded name of their aircraft sales team. The rebranding more accurately reflects both the current sales activity and the future vision of the company to expand sales expertise into a larger and more diverse set of airframes.

The launch of the company includes two new sales locations to a total of five. It also includes two new key hires, Todd Spangler and Doug Giese. Spangler joins Elliott Jets as president after most recently serving as president with Jet Linx Aviation in Atlanta. He also held senior positions with NetJets and Hawker Beechcraft.

Also new to the team is Doug Giese, based in Southern California. Giese has more than 20 years of experience after previous successes with Hawker Beechcraft, Jet Effect, and Embraer. Giese is an accomplished pilot with over 5000 hours and an ATP and multiple type ratings.

As part of their growth plan, Elliott Jets has formed strategic relationships with Textron Aviation, Jet Linx Aviation and others and is featuring Textron’s Citation X Elite at Orlando Executive Airport during the NBAA Convention October 21-23rd. Additionally, an Advisory Committee is being formed to help guide this growing business. Industry veterans Richard Emery, Randy Groom, Keith Nadolski and David Pasahow are proud founding members of this committee, which will help guide the Elliott Jets team.

“We are in a unique position to differentiate ourselves and capture a share of the aircraft brokerage and acquisition market with the extensive resources at Elliott and our customer focused processes,” said Spangler. “Our team has a high degree of knowledge and competence to guide our clients and ensure a successful transaction.”

“We’ve been creating great customer relationships through buying and selling airplanes for nearly eight decades,” said Wynn Elliott, Chairman/CEO. “This rebranding of our aircraft sales division better reflects the evolution of Elliott in the marketplace.”

The Elliott Jets website will feature aircraft listings and inventory, information on buying and selling aircraft, media, and Elliott Jets team profiles.
