Talon Air History

Talon Air was founded by an individual who combined a passion for private aviation with a vision for a singular business travel solution. A successful real estate developer and attorney, father of five, multi-engine, instrument rated, ATP pilot and certified flight instructor, Talon Air Founder and CEO Adam Katz, Esq. recognized that the private jet market lacked what he demanded as a discerning and knowledgeable traveler: consistency and flexibility.

Mr. Katz realized that individuals and businesses did not want the five-year commitment or owner-liability associated with fractional private aircraft ownership. He disagreed with the concept of 1) Purchasing a plane that the owner would rarely, if ever, use and 2) Being forced to fly different tail numbers with different pilots on every trip. Lastly, he recognized that jet-cards were too expensive and brokers lacked operational control.

In 2001, Mr. Katz purchased a fleet of late-model aircraft from Raytheon Aircraft Corporation (now Hawker Beechcraft Corporation), hired experienced and well-trained pilots, built a 45,000 sq ft state-of-the-art hangar facility and opened the doors to Talon Air.

Other aircraft owners learned of Mr. Katz’s attention to detail, insistence upon excellence in every facet of the management of his own fleet and asked that he care for their aircraft in the same manner. In November 2006, Talon Air took on its first third-party management client and has since expanded the managed fleet to 16 aircraft.

Despite Talon Air’s rapid expansion, Mr. Katz has sustained his core principle of providing a boutique, luxury aviation solution to a select group of discerning travelers. He owns the Part 135 certificate, the hangar and diverse aircraft within the 25 aircraft fleet. He intends to remain the sole backstop of quality assurance. In November 2011, Talon completed the construction of its second hangar and office complex which grew their Farmingdale facility to over 100,000 sq ft.

Talon is considered the premier aircraft charter and management company in the Northeast US and is proud to be the largest owner/operator of the all new Hawker 4000.Talon employees over 120 people and has grown to have operating bases in New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts and South Florida.
