Janine K. Iannarelli is the founder and president of Par Avion Ltd.- based in Houston- Texas. Par Avion Ltd represents clients acquiring business aircraft mainly - Bombardier- Citation- Falcon- Gulfstream- Hawker and the new Phenom product lines. Janine spends much of her time travelling and over 90% of Par Avion’s business consists of cross border transactions. Africa in 1999 proved a great adventure with Janine helping to ferry a Falcon 10 and 100 from the tip of South Africa to Texas- a first (we believe) for a female broker! It was a tough journey with a number of stops en route- some in war torn Africa with the additional challenge of negotiating with local ground support en Francais. Intrepid Janine crossed the Sahara Desert-then the Atlantic Ocean to the Canary Islands and on to Europe and the tricky North Atlantic leg to deliver those planes on time. When Janine is not flying across the globe- she is a passionate supporter of arts and charities- particularly those that benefit children and animals. As an avid horsewoman- she competes in the amateur divisions at hunter/jumper shows at the regional and national level in the United States. Janine will be bringing you her unique insight into the ups and downs of the corporate aviation business every month on AvBuyer.com. Watch this space!
