Our Story

ACI Jet was founded in 1998 by William (Bill) Borgsmiller, who had the desire to create an organization that fueled his passion and provided unparalleled private aviation experience through authentic customer relationships. As both a licensed pilot and mechanic, Bill lived and worked out of a small hangar with a Piper Seneca III that served as the company’s first charter aircraft. In early 2002, ACI Jet added the first jet aircraft to its certificate, a Citation CJ2, and hasn’t looked back since.

Today, ACI Jet employs more than 200 people, operates a fleet of 14 private jet aircraft, three executive terminals and FBOs, one self-service fuel service location, and a multi-million dollar maintenance facility. While ACI Jet has grown by leaps and bounds, our passion for excellence, service and integrity remains unchanged.
