Our Experience

Kevin O’Leary, President

Kevin’s aviation experience began in 1992.  After  flight training and receiving his MBA from Bentley University, he joined Hawker Beechcraft Company (HBC) in Wichita, KS.  At HBC, he started as a market  research analyst and was quickly promoted to trade analyst.  He was then asked to join the company’s start-up fractional jet provider, Travel Air, as a Sales Manager.  Kevin earned recognition as the nation’s top salesman in 1997 receiving both the Chairman’s and President’s Awards.

Kevin was then asked to join a start-up venture, Flight Options.  He went on to  sell over 400 shares in the Flight Options program, generating over 250 Million  in revenue.

Kevin saw the need for objective aviation research and in 2003 started a new type of  aviation advisory firm, Jet Advisors, LLC.  On behalf of their clients, Jet Advisors combines world class research with proven statistical modeling to  identify trends and make informed business decisions.

Kevin grew up in Boston, MA.  In 1995, he completed his Master’s degree in Business Administration at Bentley University and is currently pursuing a Ph.D. in Aviation (part-time) at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University.  He is a pilot and holds a commercial multi-engine rating and is a Senior Accredited Appraiser (ASA).
