Success Story

Glenn Gonzales

Aviation Founder & CEO Jet It

Taking Flight in the Triad

It’s not an exaggeration that Glenn Gonzales’ career has taken flight in Greensboro, N.C. His private transportation service – Jet It – offers jet ownership, with multiple owners sharing costs.

“We originally based the business in Delaware, but now the company headquarters are in downtown Greensboro,” Glenn explained. “The city has been very good to us. The business environment is great and provides a lot of support.”

Greensboro is also the place that provides Glenn access to one of his foremost partners, HondaJet.

The skies have woven themselves throughout Glenn’s life. He is a U.S. Air Force Academy graduate, lieutenant colonel with U.S. Air Force Reserves and earned a master’s of aeronautical sciences from
Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University.

Greensboro is the home base that has been too good to him and his family, said Glenn. With his wife, he has two teen girls who are young musicians that were part of the Greensboro Symphony Youth Orchestra and now train alongside prodigies. It’s only natural then the family enjoys spending time at the UNC School of the Arts performances and being with locals who love to give back.

“The people here are invested in philanthropy and sharing themselves and their wealth with the community. It’s encouraging to be around so many people engaged in making a positive difference.”

It’s really the people. Everyone in Greensboro has been incredibly welcoming.
