CTP Aviation: Building a Bay Area Presence

Reid Dennis established CTP Aviation in 2000 on the shoulders of a life-long passion for aviation. His passion runs the gambit: from aircraft owner to business entrepreneur to experienced pilot, including a record setting flight around the world in a Grumman Albatross. Through the years, CTP has remained focused on delivering an exceptional customer experience and staying true to core values instilled by Mr. Dennis.

Today, the managed fleet consists of a range of light to super-mid size jets based in the San Francisco Bay Area. Our recent addition of a second Citation XLS+ is a perfect example of a client’s growth from charter customer to aircraft owner.  “It’s a testament to CTP’s approach to customer service,” says Selwyn House, President of CTP Aviation, “In the course of a passenger’s charter experience, they gain an appreciation of our efforts to the point of entrusting us with their next level of commitment to private aviation.”

CTP’s membership in ACSF has played a critical role in the development of company-wide programs. It not only allows us to benefit from member best practices, but also involves our Safety Officer in key industry initiatives.

 “While we have built a solid base of loyal clients, we never stop looking for ways to improve their private jet experience,” explains Craig Zirzow, VP of Sales & Marketing.  “This goes beyond catering and personal service; the entirety of the experience, from dispatch to touchdown, is critical to client satisfaction.”
