Jet Assist Business Jet Centre announced, on the 1st November at NBAA BACE in Orlando, that it will become the first European member of the Paragon Network.

The Paragon Network is a distinguished membership of independent FBO's that provide an elite experience to business and general aviation travellers at 28 airports in North America and the Caribbean.  Paragon Aviation Group is owned and operated by Delk's Valley Oil, a family business comprised of Mike Delk, Megan Barnes and Molly Le Blanc.  With their combined industry experience of over 70 years they have introduced an exciting new industry platform for premier business aviation service providers.

Paragon Aviation Group performs a comprehensive audit of the facility and services offered to ensure the quality of the member base before any FBO joins The Paragon Network.  Each member FBO must comply with a set of strategically developed core standards in order to remain in the group.  Paragon Aviation Group facilitates The Paragon Network.

"Global expansion is something we had planned from the beginning," said Mike Delk, President & CEO of Paragon Aviation Group.  "We have spent the last few years refining our services and evolving our business model to allow for growth both domestically and internationally.  It's so important that as we grow, we not only continue to meet the needs of our customers, but we are able to exceed them.  Jet Assist has a superior service model and an excellent management team. We are thrilled to welcome them in as our first member in Europe and look forward to working with their outstanding FBO."

"We as a company are delighted to become the newest member of The Paragon Network," stated Ian Morrow CEO of Jet Assist.  "This is especially more pleasing as we will become the first located outside of North America.  We believe this venture will benefit our customers, including tourism and business greatly in Northern Ireland".
