After completing his course, he began training with TWA to fly the Boeing 727 and 747. Although Jason had accomplished much success he was determined to run his own airline company.
With the assistance of a long time colleague, Exclusive Charter Service was established. It was not a coincidence that the location chosen for the office was the same airport that Jason did his first solo flight. Now that ECS has had several successful years in business his proudest moment is being honored at the Living Legend’s of Aviation by none other than John Travolta for donating a GV and being the first non-military aircraft to bring aid during the devastating earthquake in Haiti.
Jason revealed “although we are just a part of the puzzle we are a crucial piece that brings help in times of crisis or a father home to their family”!
