Some kind words to a member of our Charter Sales Team:
The First Wednesday Poker Club of Coronado and I want to thank you again for your assistance in setting up our flight to Salt Lake City. You were very professional, compassionate and an absolute credit to your organization. Please let anyone know that I would attest to your superior customer service (including a very early morning call to let me know the plane was on its way). Thank you again for finding us an aircraft that was able to carry us all on such short notice. We all really appreciated it.

Community business leaders, non-profit organization executives, long-time clients, aircraft owners and other associates gathered recently at Palomar Airport to join with Henry Schubach, president and founder of Schubach Aviation, in celebrating the companyâ€™s 20th anniversary.
Co-hosted by Riviera magazine, the event was staged at Schubach Aviationâ€™s 40,000-square-foot hangar, which was transformed into an upscale space complete with an elaborate white bar as the centerpiece, surrounded by modern lounge areas. Approximately 220 guests attended the elegant reception.
â€śIt meant the world to us, and me personally, to have our long-time clients and friends there to commemorate our 20th anniversary milestone,â€ť said Schubach.Â â€śWe wouldnâ€™t be where we are today without them.Â Today weâ€™re in a good position to further expand our fleet and range of charter services, and we look forward to serving both old and new clients in the years to come.â€ť
Guests were invited to board several luxury aircraft surrounding the event site, including a Gulfstream IV-SP, Hawker 800XP, and a Citation II.Â A slick, black Lamborghini, Bentley GTC, Bentley Mulsanne, and a Rolls Royce Ghost were on view, courtesy of Symbolic Motors.
Snake Oil provided specialty cocktails and other beverages.Â Campine Catering provided elegant tray-passed hors dâ€™oeuvres. Cupcakes Squared was the dessert caterer.Â EuroBar hosted an espresso bar featuring organic coffee, cappuccino and espresso.Â Mark Lessman, who regularly entertains at Mille Fleur Restaurant in Rancho Santa Fe, was the featured saxophone jazz musician.
The highlight of the evening was a surprise 12-minute video, featuring interviews of Schubach Aviationâ€™s friends and clients who expressed their congratulations and gratitude to Henry Schubach and his employees for their outstanding service throughout the companyâ€™s 20 years.Â Mike Arms, president of Helen Woodward Animal Center, and Charger football star Quentin Jammer, president of the Jammer Family Foundation, thanked Schubach for his companyâ€™s generous monetary and volunteer contributions and its ongoing support of the San Diego community.
Most heartwarming was an account of one client who, with the help of Schubach, was able to travel quickly from the East Coast upon news of his motherâ€™s grave illness so he could be with his mom during her final hours.Â Another customer relayed how Schubach had enabled him and his team to fly aid into New Orleans during Hurricane Katrina and help with the rescue efforts there.
As one client put it, â€śCongratulations from one old Air Force pilot to another, who I taught to fly,â€ť joked Bill Gershen, CEO/President of Vanguard Industries and a Rancho Santa Fe resident. â€śAll kidding aside, I want to thank you, Henry, for the many years of very safe and efficient travel.Â I commend you on your 20 years of excellent service.â€ť
Last August, Schubach Aviation moved to its new 45,000-square-foot headquarters at Palomar Airport so that it could accommodate larger aircraft and anticipated growth.Â Currently sales are 15% higher this year over the same time last year. Its fleet of private aircraft includes a newly added G-IV SP, two wide-bodied Bombardier Challenger 601s, a Hawker 800XP, a Citation II, CJ1 and a factory-new CJ3. The company plans to add two new aircraft within the next month.

HAZMAT stands for Hazardous Material, and generally speaking itâ€™s wise to keep yourself away from it. However, there are times when such a material, chemical or biological item requires transportation by air.Â If you or your company are in the business of handling Hazardous Material, you know how hard it is to find an aviation company that can provide legal transportation for it.Â Since 2008, Schubach Aviation has been approved by the FAA forÂ â€śrecognition and carriage of hazardous materialsâ€ť.Â Â We worked with the FAA to designate aircraft from our fleet for this purpose, and train pilots to meet the standards to transport it safely to destinations all over the world.Â There are only a handful of charter operators in the country with this approval.Â Â Sometimes letting people know what you can offer is a way to build business relationships that you never had.
With the diversity of San Diegoâ€™s business and emerging presence in the biotech industry, we are aware of the need that local companies may have in transporting time sensitive HAZMAT shipments that require a charter operator to have FAA approval to transport it.Â We can and do provide this service in ways that UPS or FedEx cannot.Â Please contact me directly if your business could benefit from this service offered by Schubach Aviation.Â Â I look forward to speaking with you!
