Founded in 1955 as a boutique airline charter operation in Long Island, New York, Ventura Air Services has emerged as an industry disruptor with a passion for innovation.

Whether it’s aircraft charters or sales, in-house maintenance or the latest in avionics capabilities, Ventura’s end-to-end solutions are unrivaled in the industry. Ventura’s board and management leadership are actively involved in day-to-day operations and are fully vested in Ventura’s success.

What sets Ventura apart? First and foremost, our deep expertise. We are not simply in the aviation business – we’re aviators ourselves. So our ability to offer you smart, competitive, custom-matched solutions is coupled with a higher purpose — to help you achieve your goals and make every moment of your life count.

We’ve learned a thing or two over the past 65 years. Today’s savvy customer wants an intelligent value proposition, cost control, safety and the freedom to fly on their timetable. This is where Ventura outshines the competition. Not only do we offer innovative programs that make chartering or owning an aircraft easy and surprisingly affordable, we do our utmost to impress and delight our clients every time they fly. 

From the very beginning, Ventura has been driven by three principles: safety, client satisfaction and exceptional service. This translates into high efficiency, value, reliability, innovation and responsiveness. Ventura’s long-term relationships with corporate clients, direct users and brokers has created a critical pipeline of demand that keeps aircraft flying – and more importantly, earning a return on investment for their owners.

Looking to the future, Ventura will continue to expand its leadership role in the private aviation industry. With demand for our services growing rapidly, we are increasing our fleet substantially to meet and exceed client expectations. We’re constantly finding new ways to deliver value, comfort and safety. We remain committed to the values on which we were founded, all while driving innovation and customer satisfaction.


Our mission has been the same for over six decades: To empower our stakeholders and employees to innovate on every level, enabling our clients to make their aviation dreams a reality.

Our Culture and Core Values

“We believe a great company culture is created with intention. Our core values have been the primary driver for delighting our clients, growing our team, defining strategies and building our brand.”

– Nik Tarascio, CEO
