“He is a great fit for our senior leadership team,” added Stephen Myers, CAM, executive vice president at Elite Jets. “We are confident that Peter’s skillset will further elevate our ability to deliver a safe, fun and elegant travel experience for our passengers.”
As director of aircraft management, Boyd will oversee a new branch of Elite Jets that will focus on growing the company through aircraft acquisition. Elite Jets currently has a fleet of four Embraer Phenom 300s, one Embraer Legacy 500, one Gulfstream G550 and a Bell 407 helicopter.
