What We Do
Jet Air Group is an aviation business headquartered at Austin Straubel International Airport (GRB) in Green Bay. We offer a full-service Signature Select fixed-base operator (FBO), aircraft maintenance, avionics, air charter services, flight training, and calibration at our Green Bay headquarters. A satellite location at the Sheboygan County Memorial Airport (SBM) offers flight training and aircraft rental.
Our primary customers are the owners, operators, pilots, and passengers of private general aviation aircraft. These aircraft range from small single-engine airplanes and helicopters all the way up to large jets. We also serve the fueling needs of the airlines at Austin Straubel Airport, as well as government and military aircraft. Jet Air Group is not an airline, but our air charter department offers on-demand private air travel to the public.
Jet Air Group has been a leader in the aviation field in Wisconsin for more than 40 years and continues to grow.
