Fiddler Above the Roof: New Aviation Program Puts People in Their Own Jets

MORRISTOWN, N.J., Aug. 2 /PRNewswire/ — Frank “Buzz” Adubato never thought of himself as a matchmaker, but that is exactly what he has become. “Putting together partnerships in something as significant as airplane ownership is almost as difficult as matching a couple,” observes the founder and chairman of Complete Aircraft Management Partners or CAMP Aviation(R) as it is commonly referred to, a boutique aircraft management company based at the Morristown Airport. Unlike Yente in Fiddler on the Roof, however, Adubato has had great success in his matchmaking.

“At CAMP Aviation, we help clients find, buy and manage their own private jets. Some of our clients will make the investment on their own, while others will bring in a partner. We have been successfully able to put two partners together in one aircraft at a tremendous savings for everyone,” continues Adubato.

CAMP Aviation is not a fractional airline company. In business for more than two decades, the company creates management programs that meet the specific needs of small corporations or well-heeled clients, many of whom are at the top of their professions or use their airplanes mainly for private travel with their families. Unlike fractional ownership, which can create some hassles for owners sharing flight time with many others, CAMP Aviation is dedicated to matching only one or two owners in a particular aircraft owned solely by them.

“Our partnership program offers the cost effective benefits of fractional ownership combined with our personalized management program and the satisfaction of knowing the airplane is truly yours. An owner will share the initial and fixed costs with a partner, plus they each have complete control over where the airplane goes, and who is flying on it. When you get on your private jet, it is truly a reflection of the needs and preferences of you and your family. You are on a first-name basis with your pilots, crewmembers and everyone on our staff. Because a private jet is a substantial investment, we ensure that your requirements are met,” continues Adubato.

Since its founding, CAMP Aviation has been dedicated to providing the safest and best aircraft management for private ownership in the industry. Their steady growth has proven the success of their mission. Putting personal service and safety first has attracted top business executives, athletes and entertainers to the company.

With the increasing hassles of commercial travel, the long security lines, departure delays and the uncertainty of commercial flights, many successful people are turning to private aircraft. “We regularly get calls from people exploring the benefits and costs of owning a private jet. Our team can research and identify an aircraft that best meets someone’s needs and then even match them with a compatible professional also seeking an aircraft. We’ve put someone in his or her own private jet for as little as one million dollars.”

The company’s services include all aspects of flight operations, including hiring your flight crew, maintaining an aircraft, managing hanger operations, insurance and all of the services of a fulltime Flight Department without the high cost. In addition, the company also specializes in aircraft acquisition.

“We are seeing more and more individuals owning a private jet, whether by themselves or in partnership. Many people who started with fractional shares are realizing their expectations of private travel are best met by ownership, which gives them operational control. Fractional management companies have come under scrutiny lately, as their clients have complained about a decline in service, which is why we have experienced a steady increase in our client base,” observes Adubato.

Fractional ownership has increased tremendously over the last ten years and some fractional companies are having a hard time keeping up with the influx of their growing clientele. According to a recent article in the Wall Street Journal, it has been reported that clients are disappointed with the performance of their providers due in part to scheduling, availability of aircraft during peak travel days and substitution of aircraft using charter carriers who are unknown to the client. It has also been reported that some fractional owners have even been stranded without an airplane, forcing them to make costly last minute reservations with commercial airlines.

“In the case of one large fractional company,” says Adubato, “they have in essence created an airline comprised of private investors. Now they are experiencing many of the problems of a commercial airline. Aircraft owners are investing a lot of money each year for the convenience of private air travel and they have to be frustrated when they do not get quality service from their management companies. At CAMP Aviation, we have created a much better, more cost effective alternative to fractional ownership. Our owners enjoy the extraordinary service we provide, the unblemished safety record we maintain and the ability to fly on short notice. In short, they have a team dedicated to them on a personal basis,” concludes Adubato.


CAMP Aviation is a full-service aircraft management operation based at Morristown Airport in New Jersey. In business for more than 20 years, the company focuses on maintaining a relatively small number of selected clients in order to provide superior service and exceptional safety.
