Gentry Long, Founder & CEO

Born and raised in California, I have always had a strong passion for aviation within all its aspects.  My spark for aviation came early and allowed my interest in aviation to be the backbone of who I am today.  I graduated from Natomas High School in Sacramento with a strong foundation in discipline thanks to sports.  I have always arisen to the occasion to lead or facilitate with my peers naturally.  Graduated from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in Prescott, Arizona with a Bachelors of Science in Aeronautics.  I also obtained a double minor in Aviation Business Administration and Aviation Safety during my stay. I dream to stay in the industry that I love. My goal is to share my passion for aviation with others by opening the exclusivity of private air travel to the masses.  

 

Jonathan Snowden-Santi, Founder 

Aviation has always been passion of mine. Since I was young, I always knew that success within the aviation realm would be a life long pursuit. As a sophomore in High School, I attained my private pilot certificate. By the time I reached Embry-Riddle, I had become a Commercial Multi-Engine Pilot. Combining my passion for flight, with my ever-growing interest in business, has lead me to becoming a founder here at GENTRY. I am fully committed to taking this business to the next level, and ensuring that it is a great success.
