Gary Goltz, the founder of Prime Aircraft, LLC, became involved in corporate aviation in 1996 when he acquired a Hawker jet for a Dallas-based financial holding company and venture capital group where he served as Executive Vice President and General Counsel. While with the venture capital group, Gary helped found Heliflite, the first helicopter fractional ownership company in the world. He also managed the company's flight department, gaining first-hand knowledge of the true cost/benefit of business aircraft and the intricacies of the acquisition and sales processes, including the purchase and sale of two more jet aircraft. He retired from the practice of law and began his career as an aircraft broker in 2006 and co-found C&J Aviation Partners, LLC in 2007. C&J grew quickly to be one of the premier King Air and jet aircraft brokers in the world. In 2013, Gary decided to form Prime Aircraft to further his philosophy of uncompromising personal service and thorough approach to provide each client the expertise and skill for a successful transaction.
Gary brings his skill in negotiating complex mergers and acquisitions to the aircraft sales and acquisition process. He has been intimately involved in over 350 aircraft transactions and is also a licensed insurance broker, advising clients on the nuances of aviation insurance. Gary is a pilot with multi-engine and instrument ratings with over 1200 hours of flight time, including 160 hours in King Air B200's. He has owned a Mooney, four different model Barons (C55, D55, B55 and B58) and a North American T-28C Trojan.
