Rod's business career is a reflection of the American Dream for a teenager who immigrated to America from Dublin, Ireland many years ago. As a flight instructor, Rod made his first aircraft sale to a Swiss student.
In 1975 he extended his dream with the founding of U.S. Aircraft Sales. In 2000 he acquired an interest in FlightWorks, an Atlanta based Aircraft Management & Charter Co with world-wide operations, and in 2010 became its sole shareholder.
He remains active today as President of the Company focusing on aircraft inventory opportunities and his other business investments. As an addicted deal maker, he keeps everyone energized.
Rainer was born and educated in Germany, with further education in England and the United States. His international background, linguistic skills, and experience have made him an expert in international transactions and the accompanying import/export issues.
As of July 2018, after more than 37 years with U.S. Aircraft Sales, Rainer has retired from the day to day the sales work. He will continue as an independent consultant to the company on an a case by case basis.
Jim Kerrigan has been with the firm since 1982. A former Federal Agent with a nose for a deal. He is always digging and looking for opportunities. Once engaged the pit bull in him never gives up. He deals in long range aircraft such as Airbus ACJ, Boeing BBJ, Gulfstream G550/650, Bombardier Global’s among others.
