Vista America aligns Vista's operating partners in the US, namely Jet Select, Western Air Charter, XOJet Aviation and Red Wing Aviation, and will officially launch on 1 November, 2023. Vista maintains non-controlling minority interests in these US operating partners.
The formation of Vista America is a strategic step that will support the group's continued investment in the US market and represents a refinement of its branding in the region. Vista America will enable the company to maximise clarity, both within the organisation and externally, and provide its clients with a seamless and consistent experience.
Vista America will be led by industry veteran David Stanley, who has been appointed president. Stanley brings over 19 years of industry experience to his new role, serving most recently as senior director at Collins Aerospace.
COO Nick van der Meer says: “David is a highly respected industry leader with a deep understanding of the private aviation market. He is the ideal person to lead Vista America as we continue to grow our business in the United States.”
Stanley adds: “I am thrilled to join Vista America and lead this exciting new chapter for Vista America operations. The Vista group is a world-class organisation with a commitment to providing its clients with the best possible private aviation solutions. I look forward to working with the talented team as we continue to grow the business and deliver exceptional service to our clients.”
The group has invested heavily in its global infrastructure, including maintenance sites in Van Nuys, Wisconsin, Teterboro, Baden Baden, Munich and London. These sites support fleet refurbishment and maintenance, ensuring an efficient and reliable global service to members anytime, anywhere.
