Jason Middleton '20 C-Suite Advisor Since 2020
CEO | Silver Air
Jason Middleton is the CEO of Silver Air, a private jet management and charter company with operations in Los Angeles, the Bay Area, Seattle, Dallas, Houston, New York and Florida. Jason built Silver Air based on his vision for an owner-centric and customer service-oriented management/charter company. A true team leader, he hires the best professionals in the industry and invests in their success, inspiring his team to continually find new ways to create an even better experience for jet owners and charter guests.
Seeing health and safety being redefined by the novel coronavirus pandemic in early 2020, Jason led Silver Air’s development of an industry-first program called COVID-19 CLEARED for zero-touch travel. A collaborative effort between Silver Air and expert medical advisors, the CLEARED program quickly became a model in private aviation that was endorsed by industry safety auditors and adopted by other charter operators to reduce potential touch points during travel to nearly zero – a significant component for allowing business leaders from all industries safely travel and help restart the nation’s economy.
Jason developed his natural leadership abilities in endurance athletics, completing his first Ironman at 15, and has more than 300 endurance races and seven Eco-Challenges under his belt. After transitioning to aviation during his athletic career, he quickly became a sought-after aviator before starting Silver Air. Jason lives in Santa Barbara with his three children.
