Kelvin Mensah and Aaron Wilson are prominent actors in the aviation business, providing a variety of services. Their entry into this market is reshaping an industry that was effectively halted during the outbreak.

They are the owners of Approved Jets, a private aviation brokerage firm situated in Miami, Florida. They founded the company in 2019, and it has since grown to become one of the most well-known black-owned businesses in the aviation industry worldwide.

Mensah, who has worked as one of the most successful private jet brokers in the world, serves as the CEO of the company. A Ghanaian American, he has over 20 years of experience in providing private flights throughout the United States, Europe, Asia, South America, and the United Arab of Emirates.

According to Travel Noire, Mensah oversaw the chartering of over 500 jets for high-net-worth individuals from various industries.

Wilson, on the other side, is a venture capitalist and Approved Jets co-founder. He has substantial experience in recruiting, HR strategy, executive coaching, due diligence, and evaluating strategic prospects, according to Black Business.

“He is also skilled in humanizing and contextualizing emerging technology (XR, AI, machine learning, etc), and his industry expertise spans across mobile technology, private equity, AI, Web3, gaming, and private aviation,” Black Business wrote.

According to Black Business, Approved Jets, which specializes in the sales, leasing, management, and chartering of jets, helicopters, and yachts, also offers premium concierge services.

According to the website, the company has a wide network of light, mid-size, super mid-size, and heavy planes that provide premium travel experiences to not only public figures and high-net-worth individuals, but also huge Fortune 100 and Fortune 500 corporations.

According to Travel Noire, Approved Jets will generate multi-million dollar income in 2020, with Mensah and Wilson owning the entire company.
