Ari Sarmento, Chief Pilot: From The EFI Flight Deck

As the chief pilot for Executive Fliteways, it is my responsibility to provide crewmember oversight, leadership in safety, insure efficient operations and adhere to standard operating procedures and FAA rules. Many companies provide air travel and customer service, but at Executive Fliteways we are laser-focused on safety and customer service. Each of our crewmembers is empowered to provide what the customer wants and needs on any given flight. 

As soon as you book your trip, our crewmembers start orchestrating the trip, route planning, weather assessments, fuel considerations, airport facilities, security and catering. All aspects of your trip are reviewed by each crewmember and our operations dispatch and maintenance personnel. A plan is formulated by the team and executed well before departure, operational considerations are reviewed, possible impacts are addressed and a backup plan is put in place to make certain your trip is successful. We flight-follow all trips from our dispatch center at our headquarters at MacArthur Airport in Islip, NY. As Chief Pilot, I provide an extra set of eyes on each trip to validate all operational elements are considered. Along with this oversight, I also fly our Falcon 900B aircraft on customer trips.

I am looking forward to your next trip with Executive Fliteways. Please feel free to reach out to me directly if you have any questions concerning aviation or our operation. Email me, Ari Sarmento, directly at
