Kurt Belcher is president of STAjets, which is headquartered at John Wayne Airport. His best friend growing up, who became an Air Force F-16 pilot, fueled Kurt’s passion for aviation. Kurt later earned a business degree from Riddle Aviation University in 2002 with a major in airline management and minor in airport planning and design. After working as a flight instructor, a charter pilot at John Wayne, an international aircraft sales and management professional and an international private hangers developer, the opportunity at STAjets came calling. In February of 2009, he and his partners bought the company and it took off. Under Kurt’s leadership, STAjets excels in customer service. Time is extremely valuable for their clients, which is why they pride themselves on their ability to quickly get their plane in the air when needed. Kurt’s has built an incredible team over the years who have all adopted his passion for the industry.
