Though the economy has lagged, CEO Beti Ward of Pacific Air Cargo (PAC) explains that her company’s success has come from servicing a real industry need. After working in the air cargo business for eight years, Ward launched her own company in 1989, American International Corp., to serve a niche market.

From its beginnings in 1989 as a small trucking company overseen by a husband-and-wife team running mail routes through southern Georgia, J&P Hall Express has developed into one of the leading air cargo and expedited transportation providers in the Southeast. In fact, last year the company was named trucker of the year by the Atlanta Air Cargo Association and Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport.

Ben Bauman, CEO of Bolt Express, considers his company culture to be one of its biggest competitive advantages. The Bolt management team has embraced a servant leadership style that focuses on the growth and development of its employees as a way to ensure an overwhelmingly positive experience for the company’s customers.

No traveler wants to have a bad in-flight experience. Instead, they want to feel safe with a crew that is ready to meet their needs.

Robb Bergeson says Edward Jet Center’s understanding of this need has kept it successful over the last 63 years. “We are very fortunate to have a great core group of employees,” the general manager says. “[They] really understand that our business is based on safety and service.”

As Milwaukee-based Derco Aerospace, Inc. approaches its 30th year within the industry, the aircraft supply chain company’s business model continues to develop. The logistics and solutions provider is a subsidiary of Sikorsky Aircraft Corp., which is owned by United Technologies Corp. of Hartford, Conn.

Commitment is a commodity that a business cannot run without. The commitment to invest in new manufacturing equipment that will enable a company to excel was necessary for BMT Aerospace USA Inc. to accelerate its growth, and for its vice president of sales and marketing, Bryan Barlow, to execute a successful revenue growth strategy.

Having worked on the Boeing A-10 Thunderbolt II, the Northrop Grumman E2-D Advanced Hawkeye, the Gulfstream G650, the Sikorsky Black Hawk Helicopter and S-92 Civilian, and other advanced aircraft, CPI Aerostructures Inc. has one of the most impressive portfolios in the aerospace industry. For more than 30 years, the Edgewood, N.Y.-based company has been engaged in the contract production of structural aircraft parts and assemblies, but only recently has it expanded its capabilities to the subcontracting marketplace, President and CEO Edward Fred says.

Everyone is familiar with the popular image of lei greetings at Hawaiian airports. This image is burned in the mind of people whether they’ve visited the island or not. In reality, Honolulu International Airport (HNL) strives to bring this legendary aloha spirit to life for every passenger who walks through its doors.
