In 1988 JETNET LLC was founded by Vincent Esposito, Sr., an entrepreneur in Utica, NY who achieved great success in the industrial linen services business. It was in his first career that Mr. Esposito came to appreciate the benefits of business aircraft as employed by several of his peers. This sparked his interest in business aviation and led to the launch of JETNET. JETNET became the first aircraft research service to harness the power of the modern PC.
In July 1988, the company’s first 12 researchers began building the database that at the time contained 12,000 airframes. The custom interface was a simple DOS program delivered daily via satellite. This was revolutionary at the time and established JETNET’s reputation as the forerunner in technological advances.
JETNET has since grown to approximately 50 researchers, updating information on over 98,000 airframes. The service is entirely web-based and driven by the highly sophisticated Evolution interface. Recent innovations include SMS text messaging, customizable database interface Views, and Evolution mobile.
JETNET is today regarded as the comprehensive provider of business and commercial aircraft intelligence, and serves thousands of aviation professionals throughout the world.
