ProJet Aviation

"The value of time, the wonder of flight." ProJet Aviation is the DC metro region's premier private aviation hospitality company, dedicated to helping people accomplish extraordinary things through the wonder of flight.

ProJet provides a world-class flight support/FBO experience including arrival and departure services, fueling, and facilities leasing at Leesburg Executive Airport (KJYO), the private aviation gateway to Washington DC, the Dulles Technology Corridor, and Virginia's Horse & Wine Country. Founded in 2007 as a partnership between former airline pilot entrepreneur Shye Gilad, and noted entrepreneur and philanthropist Sheila C. Johnson, Founder & CEO of Salamander Hotels and Resorts, ProJet’s “aviation hospitality” mindset combines the operational integrity of the world’s best airlines with the refined service of a world class resort. ProJet is the host sponsor of the annual Aviation Education & Career Expo, which provides an aviation and aerospace forum for thousands of students in the Mid-Atlantic Region, and has awarded hundreds of thousands of dollars in scholarships since its inception. ProJet’s numerous accolades include recognition as one of the top FBOs in the country in the fltplan.com Pilots’ Choice Awards, a Washington Business Journal Best Place to Work, and an Inc. 5000 Fastest Growing Company.

The vision for ProJet began in 2006 by a small group of airline pilots who wanted to create a private jet company where service comes first. In 2007 they found the ideal partner in Salamander Hotels & Resorts, a company specializing in the management of independent luxury hotels, resorts and fine food establishments. Today ProJet Aviation is an award-winning aviation service company, operating a growing fleet of professionally managed aircraft focused primarily in the Washington DC Metropolitan Area.

Mission: To find new ways to add value to life through the wonder of flight.

ProJet Aviation would like to thank all who have served and are currently serving our country! ❤🤍💙🇺🇸

Every year ProJet and the Town of Leesburg have provided support towards "Toys For Tots" donations to the US Marine Corps! Over the years we have collected thousands of toys for needy families during the Holidays. Due to COVID-19, the campaign has decided to take cash or check donations in lieu of toys and purchase toys, to minimize exposure. There is a locked donation box at the ProJet front desk, in the main terminal, if you would like to make a donation. Thank you for your support!

[07/24/20]   We truly have the BEST clients!!! Thank you so much for the positive feedback!!

"These people really know how to run an FBO. I called the day prior to our arrival to make hotel and rental car reservations. I spoke with Dawn, who was very friendly and extremely helpful. When we arrived, she and the three ground crew members were on the ramp, ready to greet our aircraft. I believe our primary passenger was also impressed with the level of attention we received. The ground crew, and Dawn, was eager to help with the unloading of bags and getting our passengers on their way. It was so well coordinated that it was obvious they had done it many times. Please give Dawn a raise. She's wonderful." -TW

Way to go team! #leesburgrocks #kjyo #projetaviation #teamworkmakesthedreamwork #weappreciateourclients

[07/15/20]   Thank you again! More positive reviews!!

I arrived at KJYO on a Wednesday afternoon and was greeted by one of the line staff that had a great attitude and a big smile. He tied my plane down and blocked the wheels and locked it up for me. After escorting me to the FBO, I was again greeted by a wonderful staff that was both pleasant and efficient. I am a disabled veteran with a service dog. The women helped me care for the dog, fed her treats and gave her a huge bowl of cold water after a long, hot flight. Parking was free after I filled her up! It seemed like they were ahead of me the entire time offering assistance at each step of the way! Great team. Thanks for everything KJYO FBO! - 7/10/2020, AS
