“Silver Air wants our owners to have a successful experience with their aircraft, and Chuck’s energy, leadership skills and experience working with aircraft owners make him a perfect fit for our growth strategy and our team,” added Middleton.

Chuck Stumpf said: “Silver Air is working hard to provide the absolute best experience for aircraft owners, and I am innately attracted to this team’s focus on service and advocacy for private jet owners. Silver Air has committed to working with select aircraft owners across the country that fit the company’s long-term management vision. From my experience in the private aviation industry, I know there are a lot of private aircraft owners who will appreciate and benefit from Silver Air’s vision and management plans.”

Stumpf has a Bachelor of Science degree in business aviation administration, with a minor in international aviation business and computer applications from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University. He completed the Developing Leadership Capability in Corporate Aviation program at the University of Virginia’s Darden School of Business, and he holds a single-engine pilot license with IFR and commercial ratings.

At Silver Air, Stumpf will be primarily responsible for seeking out new aircraft owners in a very specific and responsible way and managing strategic growth while building the Silver Air managed fleet domestically. He is based at Silver Air’s corporate offices in Santa Barbara, California.

“Utilizing new technology and financial modeling, Silver Air develops management plans unique to this industry that garner the best returns for owners based on their estimated usage and financial goals,” Stumpf said. “Private aircraft owners who are looking for a new management company, or who even just want to see a free cost-benefit analysis for how Silver Air can maximize their cost-benefit return rates, should give us a call at Silver Air.”
