Aviation veterans Robert Allen and Steve Giordano have launched the Nomadic Aviation Group, flying heavy airliners around the world on behalf of clients.
The Delaware based Group (ICAO Callsign OMD “NOMADIC”) will pick up where Allen and Giordano left off with Jet Test International, a Bahamas-based transactional flight ops provider where the two serve as managing partners, and which is now in the process of winding down. With a client-base that consists of nearly every major aircraft lessor, the team has delivered over 1,800 aircraft over the last two decades into and out of nearly every country on the planet.
“We’re really excited about unveiling the new brand and taking this thing to the next level” said Giordano, who flew the first Nomadic-branded trip on October 6th; a Boeing 737-800 from Spokane, Washington State to Brisbane, Australia.
“The concept of an ‘Aviation Group’ with capabilities that will eventually include ACMI/AOC operations, a beefed-up non-profit side, continuing airworthiness resources, and more regionally focused sub-entities will really give us the edge to better serve our global customers by utilising local operations teams in different parts of the world.”
Nomadic derives its name from the type of lifestyle the job demands. “We’re literally flying nomads. We go to where the work is; move a plane halfway around the world, then head to another country to do it all over again” said Giordano of the company’s new branding.
