It’s easy to see why Leesburg is rapidly becoming the destination of choice for private jet travelers in the DC Metro Region.

ProJet Aviation, a private aviation hospitality company providing aircraft management, jet charter flights, and flight support (FBO) services at Leesburg Executive Airport (KJYO), received high honors in several categories in the FltPlan Pilots’ Choice Awards. The rankings are based on the results of an annual survey of FltPlan's 157,000-plus active users.

"The Pilots' Choice Awards is a pilot survey, not a reader survey..." said Ken Wilson, president of FltPlan. "Because pilots are the people who use the FBOs, they are best able to judge the quality of the FBO services that they receive.”

ProJet earned a #2 ranking in the Ace Award Category, which recognizes those FBOs who received the most votes at airports with 4,000 or fewer arrivals per year. The company also captured the #3 spot in the competitive Northeast Region, jumped from #22 to #12 in the Star Award Category, and from #39 to #13 among all FBOs in the nation.

"This FBO team understands who our clients are, and more importantly - we understand who we are.  We pride ourselves on meeting and exceeding hospitality expectations everyday,” said Julie O’Brien, Director of Flight Support and Marketing for ProJet Aviation. “It’s easy to see why Leesburg is rapidly becoming the destination of choice for private jet travelers in the DC Metro Region.”

Leesburg Executive Airport (KJYO) is the closest general aviation airport to Washington DC, the Dulles Technology Corridor, and Virginia's growing horse and wine country. ProJet has been providing flight support services at Leesburg since 2010.
