Pulver Aviation is an aviation company located at the Scottsdale airport that offers on-demand private jet charter and aircraft management services.
David Pulver, CEO, and Brandon Kearns, President, are the driving force behind Pulver Aviation, and both share a passion for aviation. Pulver, a serial entrepreneur who originally had a career in the technology industry, loved airplanes since childhood and obtained his pilot’s license as a hobby, entered the aviation business full-time in 2005.
“I have been very fortunate to achieve success with my technology companies, which afforded me the opportunity to pursue my passion for aviation,” Pulver says.
Kearns, also a life-long lover of airplanes, obtained his pilot’s license at 17, and was a flight instructor at 18. His devotion to flying was solidified at the age of 5 on a flight from Wichita, Kansas to Washington Reagan National Airport. At the age of 29, he was the youngest Director of Operations for an air carrier in the United States.
“Where I am today has been the result of a lifetime of seeing where the next day would take me, and how far I could with my dream of being a pilot,” Kearns says. Pulver and Kearns pride themselves on the integrity and honesty that is the foundation of their business philosophy, and are proud of the team they have built.
“We have a team of professionals which combine decades of aviation expertise and experience,” Pulver says. “We strive to provide world class service and build long-term trusting relationships with our customers.”
2016 was a year of change for Pulver Aviation. Pulver partnered with Kearns and together decided to completely reboot the company, and it went through a restructuring. In 2017 Pulver Aviation will add another four to six aircraft, including a Gulfstream. Pulver Aviation is expanding its flight operations by the end of first quarter 2017 by offering world-wide operations. Another unique offering at Pulver Aviation is air medical services, offering the fastest medically configured aircraft in the world.
Pulver and Kearns each have their own philanthropic activities. Pulver, because of his son’s passion for trains, is a member of the Maricopa Live Steamers, a non-profit train club. He volunteers at the Adobe Mountain Desert Railroad Park which includes giving free train rides to the public every Sunday and at the holidays.
Kearns and his wife, Karynda Kearns, created a non-profit called Drive By Blessings, which assists homeless and disabled veterans as they transition from being homeless to being in a home by providing those essentials necessary for living in a home such as furniture, dishes, beds, and more.
