Starbase Jet - The Standard in Luxury Aviation
Randall Reed, CEO of Starbase Jet is passionate about flying. His passion grew out of necessity in the late 1990s after growing several successful businesses in the automotive industry, he realized he was spending more time in airports than with his family. Reed began taking pilot lessons and eventually became a top rated pilot and purchased his first aircraft, a Beechcraft Bonanza. Randall and his wife Sherry have owned and managed several aircraft since then and with the help of Managing Partner, Joel Brookshire, Randall grew his pastime into a worldwide operation- now known as Starbase Jet.
