Founder & CEO Jacquie Dalton established SPARROW Executive Jets in 2020 to pursue the development of a product solution designed to resolve liquidity and security issues that affect flight operations, customer service, and finances throughout the jet charter industry.
Formerly the Chief Operating Officer of a regionally based FAA Part 135 10+ Worldwide Certificate Holder, Jacquie entered the jet charter broker business as an independent contractor with expansive knowledge in flight operations ranging from aircraft acquisition, refurbishment, management, maintenance, wholesale charter sales, and accounting.
She credits her ability to provide clients with a higher level of service and personal security to understanding the challenges of independent operators trying to meet the demand of increasingly tech-driven flight requests that may or may not be qualified.
Beginning her career in private aviation as Executive Vice President, Marketing & Sales, she developed strategic brand positioning and authorship of sales products that gave consumers and nationwide brokers access to a diverse charter fleet including Gulfstream, Bombardier, Dassault, Beechcraft, and Cessna products. To meet demand from significant growth, she established interdepartmental procedures that increased efficiency, employee productivity, and collaboration. With sales exceeding the company’s fleet availability, she structured a retail sales division with remote locations across the United States.
Jacquie is a former thoroughbred jockey, breeder and owner, who brings a diverse portfolio of business experience and a non-traditional background that inspires a culture of innovative thinking and achievement.
