When Cirrus announced the creation of a single-engine personal jet in 2006, Jay Jolley sent in a deposit check the same day. It took 11 years before the aircraft hit the market, but more than a decade later, Jolley took delivery of the Cirrus SF50 Vision Jet and made a historic flight home.

Jolley, a Chattanooga, Tenn. resident, is chairman and part-owner at EMJ Corporation, a general construction services company. Through his role with the company, Jolley travels frequently for business. His father, founder of EMJ Corporation and a pilot himself, was ultimately the reason he got into aviation.

After having a somewhat strained relationship into Jolley’s early teen years, he and his father finally decided what they needed was to work on something together. The two began working on radio control model airplanes to foster a better relationship.

“It gave us a way to share time together, a way to experience problems and solutions and victories and failures,” Jolley said.

The activity bonded them more than either ever expected, and Jolley developed a passion for aviation through the experience. As early as he was able, he began training to fly. He received his pilot’s license in 1977 at the young age of 17.

In 1983, Jolley began working at EMJ Corporation. He achieved his instrument rating in a Bonanza A36 and graduated to twin engines in the Cessna 421 Golden Eagle, both company airplanes. He made his first personal aircraft purchase and began a long tenure with Cirrus in 2003. Over the next 14 years, he would own four Cirrus SR22s, each one a slight upgrade from the last.

That’s how Jolley found Mark Rogers, founder and president of Lone Mountain Aircraft.

“I was introduced to Mark while selling my first SR22. Mark worked very well with me to coordinate the transaction,” said Jolley.

Since then, Jolley has trusted Lone Mountain to sell each of his SR22s.

With the pilot’s 11-year wait for the Vision Jet finally set for December 29, 2017, Jolley sold his most recent aircraft, a 2013 SR22T, in preparation for his new bird: the Cirrus SF50 Vision Jet Position 24.

Though the Vision Jet was Jolley’s biggest upgrade yet, it also meant the chance for a 41-year pilot to fly something new, and enhance the way he traveled for business and personal endeavors. Having completed all SF50 training and mentorship before his purchase, he was able to get it off the ground quickly, making history as the very first Vision Jet owner-pilot to solo home.

“That was my most memorable flight,” said Jolley. “When I got in it, it was surreal. To think that I’d spent over a decade waiting for this, and it had actually occurred…I never lost hope in it, but it was a long time to wait.”

Jolley counts the Vision Jet as the best flying experience he’s ever had in a single-pilot operation due to three factors: comfort, speed and safety.

“The pressurization and noise level are superior,” said Jolley. “The speed of the 300-knot aircraft gets me where I want to go quickly. Redundant systems increase the safety factor, and knowing there is a jet engine powering the aircraft multiplies its reliability.”

According to Jolley, there’s not a better aircraft to consider than the Vision Jet.

“It’s a mini-vacation when I’m flying the Vision Jet,” said Jolley. “I can forget everything else and focus on a passion.”

Jolley's Vision Jet, "Miss Grace V"

Jolley’s Vision Jet, “Miss Grace V”

Jolley uses the jet for business and personal travel, often accompanied by some of his most precious cargo: Kelly, his wife of 23 years, and daughter Grace, a junior at Baylor University. Grace is the namesake of not one, but all five of Jolley’s planes. The Vision Jet’s moniker is “Miss Grace V”.

When Jolley isn’t flying airplanes, he’s building them. After completing the build of an AirCam, Jolley recently started in on a Carbon Cub EX2. When he needs a break from airplanes, he heads to the green for a round or two of golf.

After an 11-year wait for the “mini-vacation” that is the Vision Jet, Jolley said he won’t be looking to sell anytime soon.

“When I am ready, the first place I’ll go is to Mark at Lone Mountain,” Jolley said.

Our team of pilots at LMA enjoys helping clients not only buy, but also sell aircraft, handling all the transactions and communications in between. Contact us today if you are interested in learning more about the Vision Jet.

By: Mark Rogers, Lone Mountain Aircraft President

With five turbine aircraft sold in the last 30 days, we are seeing brisk activity in light jets and single engine turboprops. Light jet inventory is currently the tightest since 2009, with many models now below 10% of the fleet for sale. While good values still exist, the nicest aircraft are moving quickly. After selling two TBM 850’s and three Meridians in the last quarter, we have left over buyers for both models. We also completed a Phenom and Mustang acquisition this quarter. Check in with us for our observations of these markets if you are considering a step-up or sale.   

Here is a quick look at what else is new:

Vision Jet Positions: Vision Jet position market has been quite active. Lone Mountain recently brought Vision Jet Position 61 to market which is the currently the earliest available delivery position. We have five positions available below 90 which should all deliver in 2018. There is still an opportunity to be flying your own SF50 Vision Jet within the next 12 months. Interested in getting some time flying the Vision Jet? Our Atlanta-based agent Daniel Christman has Vision Jet Experience Packages available in N234HS based in Atlanta. Call us for details.   

G5 Cirrus Market: So far in 2017, the Generation 5 Cirrus market segment continues to strengthen with the excitement surrounding the introduction of Generation 6. We are particularly seeing a strengthening of the SR22T-G5 market segment and in all of 2016, 24 units transacted, while we have seen 30 transact thus far this year. Second and third quarter sales of the SR22T-G5 noted a 100% increase in units sold from 2016 to 2017. In the normally aspirated SR22-G5 market segment, units sold have tripled over that what had sold through the first three quarters of 2016, and the average sales price has increased slightly continuing to show the value in that market segment. Units available reflect this as well as historically we see 50% less SR22 G5’s for sale at any given time over SR22T-G5’s.

Cirrus Backlog: Cirrus Aircraft is experiencing their largest backlog of new aircraft orders since 2003, reflecting the success and warm reception of the new Perspective Plus avionics suite. At the time of this writing the wait for a new SR20 or SR22 is nine months, extending out to May 2018. This follows a production rate increase for 2017, and annual price increases since 2012.

We expect a strong market for late model pre-owned aircraft through the rest of 2017. We’ve already sold one 2017 SR22T G6 earlier this year and have a second advertised currently.

We look forward to hearing from you!   

As the Director of Operations at GreatAmerica Financial Services headquartered in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, being a pilot offers Martin Golobic a major advantage to running the business. Golobic’s love affair with planes started as a young child on his flights back and forth to Europe, his parents’ birthplace. Invited on the flight deck as a boy, he knew he wanted to one day be a pilot and his dream became a reality 18 years ago when he learned to fly in a Cessna 150. Quickly working his way through a Cessna 172 and Piper Warrior, his family eventually went on to purchase a Cessna 182 in 2003 when he was still a college student.

When Iowa faced a serious flood in 2008, Martin was able to use the aircraft to travel to displaced employees working from all over Eastern Iowa. The plane allowed his father, owner of Great America Financial, to maintain his long-standing tradition of handing out payroll checks in person to his employees. Without the aircraft, they never would have been able to accomplish that in a single day.

Martin traded his 182 for a Piper Matrix, allowing him to go faster and carry more passengers. It did not take long before he realized he should be flying higher where often you could find smoother air and you could be above the clouds, he traded up to a new 2013 Mirage, which he kept for two years before selling and moving to Atlanta. Longing to return to flight, he rented Aero Atlanta’s Cirrus SR22 for his time in Georgia. Returning to Cedar Rapids in July of 2016, Martin was ready to make the jump into a Meridian.

The Meridian, quickly showed its advantages being a turboprop and provided impressive performance. He took family flights to both coasts and was able to visit customers and feel confident that he could trust his aircraft to perform when he needed it to.

 Less than eight months later, Martin purchased an Embraer Phenom 100 from Lone Mountain with less than 1,000 hours of flying under his belt. Flying is now a significant timesaver for work trips. Martin can easily travel from Cedar Rapids to Savannah, Ga. for a presentation and return home within the same day. He now utilizes the aircraft more for business than any other aircraft he has owned due to its comfort, speed and economy.

According to Martin, working with Lone Mountain’s team allowed him to understand the benefits of maintenance tracking and engine and airframe programs while ensuring he found the aircraft that was perfect for his needs.

“Lone Mountain spent a lot of time with me, working through what would be the right fit based on my budget. We spent a lot of long hours talking through the competitive differences in performance, comfort, cost of operations and maintenance requirements.” said Martin. “They also handled all of the due diligence of jet ownership. I did not even know what an engine program was when I operated the Meridian. After going through the process with Lone Mountain, I do not feel like I could have lined up the right people, put paperwork together, and got an aircraft into inspection by myself.”

As the former Regional Sales Director for Embraer, Lone Mountain Sales Rep Mark Stear utilized his many industry connections and unparalleled product knowledge on the Phenom aircraft.

“Lone Mountain has expertise in a variety of aircraft, and I trusted them completely to help me find the right light jet for my needs,” said Martin. “I couldn’t be happier with my purchase.”

Our team of pilots at Lone Mountain Aircraft Sales loves helping businessmen and women find the aircraft suitable for their day-to-day operations. For more information on GreatAmerica Financial Services, go to GreatAmerica.com
