Oklahoma City, OK (February 18, 2020) – Valair Aviation, a Meta Special Aerospace (MSA) company, recently completed a remarkable paint job on a Cessna Citation 550 Bravo for Jet Air.
Valair’s team of experts prepped, painted, and finalized an artistic design to enhance the sleek design of this aircraft.
The Citation 550B Bravo is owned by Jet Air. The project was initiated by brothers, Matt and Phil Wolford. Matt and Phil both worked at Jet Air before and after college and have successfully advanced into the leadership roles of General Manager and Vice President of Jet Air.
Matt and Phil grew up on the family farm in Abingdon, Illinois. Early on, their grandfather made a grass runway on the farm and registered it with the State of Illinois. This registration would mark the first registered private airport in Illinois (IL01). From a young age, the brothers have worked in the aviation industry starting with fueling planes and earning their pilot ratings to growing the business.
“We just completed our third paint project in the last 18-months with Valair. They came recommended by another operator and we have been impressed with their work every time. Dave Chapman has been great to work with; always responsive to questions and keeps us updated throughout each project. Our most recent project with Valair was on our "flagship" Citation Bravo which averages 650 flight hours per year. Minimizing downtime was extremely important to us and they turned the project quickly without sacrificing the quality. We appreciate the hard work of their entire team!” says owner, Matt Wolford.
Valair is proud to have this long-standing relationship with Jet Air and hopes to continue to support their exterior refinishing and services needed in the future.
