In conversation with Patrick Lindsey, President of Mira Vista Aviation

Q. What motivated you to address the challenges faced in aircraft management?

I’m a pilot and a jet owner who was fed up with never hearing a direct answer. I started Mira Vista as a management business with an owner's viewpoint. This view allows us to exceed expectations and better care for our customers. Mira Vista offers strategic fleet cost-savings programs and the ability to generate charter hours for offset, and we promise to maintain your aircraft to the highest standards. From world-class ownership to impeccable on-demand jet charter, no distance is too far.

Q. Trust is a difficult attribute to measure and a delicate dynamic to maintain. How do you maintain this with your clients?

Our transparency builds trust with clients. We are transparent with our owners, so they know they're getting the most out of their capital investment by keeping the aircraft in working order. We keep our management supply at the level of our demand requests so that each Mira Vista managed aircraft earns the hours needed to be economically successful. Moreover, trusting whom you fly with is not a decision to take lightly. You're putting your and others' safety in that companies' hands. We pride ourselves on clear and direct communication with charter clients to uphold a high-security level prior, throughout, and after a trip.

Q. Are you equipped with latest technology to ensure safety and security of your clients?

Technology plays a key role in aviation but when it comes to safety there is no instrument used to properly quantify security. At Mira Vista Aviation, we open our doors to third parties in an effort to constantly keep our safety practices well above par for our passengers and flight crews. In this journey, we have now become ISBAO (International Standard for Business Aircraft Operations) Stage III seal approved, the highest rating offered, and an honored achieved by very few of the thousands of operators in existence. Mira Vista Aviation is also ARGUS Platinum rated and proud Wyvern Wingman.

Q. Do you have any new services launching soon?

In 2020 Mira Vista Aviation expanded into mid-size jets, allowing us to serve our clientele' vast portfolio better. The Mira Vista Fleet added on three citation jets to our stash of Gulfstream aircraft. Now, whether you're flying regional, coast to coast, or international, we have an aircraft ready for flight.
