Jay Mesinger discovered a passion for flying when he was
in high school. Then, in college, he learned he had a
gift for business. In 1982, Mesinger combined his love
for flying with his knowledge of business to create J.
Mesinger Corporate Jet Sales, Inc., a professional
aircraft brokerage and consulting firm.
Mesinger began purchasing
planes at age 22 while working for a Miller Beer
distributor in Houston. He took his boss to buy a plane
at a Piper dealership in Houston. Soon after, Mesinger
bought the struggling dealership and within the first
year, turned it into one of the largest Piper
dealerships in the world. The dealership sold more Piper
Navajos than anyone else and, as a result, won every
award that Piper had to give.
In the early 1980s, Mesinger's
clients began to outgrow their Piper Piston Twins. Many
of them wanted to upgrade their aircraft to jets. So
Mesinger began working as a broker and consultant,
focusing on turboprops and jets.
Today, J. Mesinger Corporate
Jet Sales acts as a broker to both the buyer looking to
purchase a jet or turbo prop, and the seller looking to
receive the best market price for his aircraft. The
company also works closely with its clients as a
resource in the management of their aviation asset.
