ABOUT GOLD AVIATION

A LEADER IN

LUXURIOUS AIR

TRAVEL

Founded by Leonard Goldberg, Gold Aviation has proudly served the private air travel needs of discerning clients across South Florida since 1995. From day one, our Fort Lauderdale-based fleet of luxury jets and light aircraft has offered clients the latest in aviation technology, including our newest acquisition, the Embraer Phenom 300 – the world’s fastest, most efficient and longest-range single-pilot aircraft.

Gold Aviation specializes in full-service private aircraft management, sales and flight charters. For nearly 25 years, we have been synonymous with the highest levels of safety, service and professionalism. Simply put, no other private air travel partner can match our standards.

At the Forefront of Giving Back

Gold Aviation is in the fortunate position of being able to give back and help others, and we hold a number of causes close to our hearts. We are strong supporters of Gilda’s Club South Florida, an organization that supports cancer patients. We also use our fleet of jets to bring emergency relief to disaster areas, such as the Bahamas after the devastation brought by Hurricane Dorian. See more on our blog.

MEET THE TEAM

The Gold Aviation executive leadership team is comprised of experienced professionals who are passionate about air travel, technology, world-class client services and more. Together, we are transforming how people just like you buy, sell, service and charter private aircraft.
