Since 2004 Jet Source has been generating all of the company's power from clean solar energy.
Photovoltaic solar panels were installed on two of the company's four hangars and have reduced its
energy costs by more than 90 percent and generate enough extra power for hundreds of households in
Jet Source was founded in March 1997 when it purchased an existing Air Carrier certificate,
Management Air Transport Services, Inc. The fleet was limited to two Lear 35s. In 1999 Jet Source
received worldwide operating authority along with the authorization to operate aircraft with 10 or more
seats. This permitted Jet Source to expand its fleet.
In February 2000, Jet Source purchased a full-service Fixed Base Operation (FBO) and avionics repair
station, formerly Cinema Air Jet Center, based at Carlsbad's Palomar Airport. Jet Source has since
expanded the repair station authorization to include aircraft maintenance, in addition to the avionics
repair and installations that it presently conducts.
With the purchase of an FBO, Jet Source has become a full-service aviation firm that can fulfill all of its
clients' aviation needs at one location. With a completed expansion in 2005, we now boast over 120,000
square feet of hangar space, 35,000 square feet of office space, and an FBO with a luxurious executive
terminal. We provide experienced maintenance, avionics, ramp service, fuel sales, aircraft charter,
aircraft management and aircraft sales/acquisition.
