Job Description

Wheels Up is a leading private aviation company that delivers a total aviation solution for 9,000+ members and customers throughout North America. We offer three membership options—Connect, Core, and Business—that significantly reduce the upfront cost to fly privately and enable a member to book a private plane as easily as an Uber or an Airbnb. Additionally, we provide comprehensive aircraft management and whole aircraft sales services for current and prospective plane owners.


Wheels Up gives members access to one of the world’s largest owned and managed fleets of private aircraft, totaling over 300 planes—as well as a fleet of 1,250+ Wheels Up-approved partner aircraft ranging from Light to Large-Cabin Jets. All members can also attend exclusive events and take advantage of a suite of hospitality, lifestyle, and retail benefits from some of the world’s preeminent brands.


In August 2019, we completed a Class D equity raise, giving us an enterprise valuation north of $1.1B. In January 2020, we entered into a groundbreaking partnership with Delta, which involved our company combining with Delta Private Jets to expand our fleet and offer guaranteed nationwide coverage—and which has enabled us to provide unparalleled experiences across private and commercial air travel. We also acquired our longtime partner Gama Aviation in March 2020, making us the largest Part 135 operator in the US and one of the largest private aviation operators and aircraft management companies in the world.


These developments, coupled with our previous acquisitions of Avianis, a leading tech company that has accelerated the development of our next-level digital platform, and TMC, the leading light jet charter wholesaler in the US, have made Wheels Up one of the fastest-growing and most innovative private aviation companies in the industry, capable of fulfilling any flight need. 


At Wheels Up, we are realizing our vision of making private flying and the accompanying lifestyle accessible to millions of individuals, families, and businesses in the U.S. and around the world.
