Petrossov’s knowledge in private jets was also established in his tenure as a board advisor at Gulfstream Jets.
After his first nasty experience in booking a private jet in the past, he chose an innovative approach towards recruiting a professional team from Nokia, BMW, and Uber. The app, JetSmarter, was launched in 2012. It arrived in the market in 2013. Besides connecting users with private jets, it offers limited helicopter services. Having a brilliant concept and the developer’s expertise, Petrossov executed the project. He made it easy for clients to schedule their flights while enhancing the use of private jets in the sector.
