The Full Story


Jay Schmidlapp - President

As a professional corporate helicopter pilot for the past 25 years I've had the opportunity to fly from some of the worlds most luxurious yachts and commercial ships from remote parts of the planet. As a pilot I have a laser focused  personality paying particular attention to detail, regulations and procedures. As a leader I've always lived by the principle that hiring people that are smarter than you will yield the best results. 

I always had a passion for flying ENG across multiple news markets in multiple states. Winner of an Emmy award for breaking news and a member of SAG from my flying work in the series Burn Notice I enjoy the fast-paced environment of getting the story.


Our parent company JTAC Services Inc. based in Tucson Arizona is a leader in Maritime Aviation who provides services to super yachts and commercial expedition ships with helicopters based onboard.
