Get to know Paul Rodsjo, the Global Air Charters Director of Operations.
Paul is a lifelong aviation enthusiast. Although he doesn’t remember exactly how his love for aviation began, he knew at the age of 5 that he wanted to be a pilot. Paul turned his aviation passion into a career and is one of the most experienced members of our GAC team. Paul’s extensive experience includes USA FAA certification and a EASA (European) Airline Transport Pilot certificate. Additionally, he has been through 8 different types of ratings and speaks multiple languages. His international experience has helped him accumulate more than 17,000 hours flying worldwide.
Paul’s favorite travel destination is Vienna, Austria. He enjoys the great people, architecture, and delicious cuisine. Not only is Austria his favorite destination but he also experienced his favorite moment while flying here. “My all-time favorite flight was departing Innsbruck, Austria early in the morning after a snowfall. Climbing through the alps as the sun was shining on the mountains and fresh snow was beautiful”, Paul shared.
The Gulfstream 5 is his favorite aircraft to pilot, with the Gulfstream 4 as a close second. However, he would love to fly a Boeing 747-400 but isn’t expecting to check that box any time soon. When he is not flying, he enjoys fly fishing and working on his ’61 Volvo.
When asked, “What makes Global Air Charters different from other air charter companies?” Paul responded, “We are small and nimble, with the customers interest being the number one priority. Additionally, our team, we have been fortunate enough to attract some amazingly talented and dedicated people”.
As Global Air Charters’ Director of Operations, Paul’s vision for GAC is to be a boutique operator that thrives on making the difficult look easy. He went on to state, “I also want us to be immediately available for owners of managed aircraft. They deserve to talk to a decision-maker immediately. Above all, I want us to be their friend that knows how to operate airplanes”.
