about us

Volo Group was founded in June 2007, with the disassembly and part sales of one Gulfstream II. Since then, Volo Direct has grown and expanded by diversifying into regional and corporate aircraft.

img-38.jpg Alberto Santos-Dumont(1873-1932) Brazilian aviation pioneer.

Dumont Group was founded in January 2013. However, its predecessor companies Elcorta and MX Jet Services have a history at the New Castle Airport in Delaware (KILG) going back to 1974.

The inspiration for the name and logo came from the Brazilian aviation pioneer, Alberto Santos-Dumont (1873-1932). In October 1906, Santos-Dumont piloted the first heavier than air machine in Europe, as verified by the Aero-Club de France. Santos-Dumont had many other aviation firsts and is widely considered by many to be the "father" of aviation. He was rarely seen without his wide brimmed hat.

Dumont Group and Volo Direct have continued to grow rapidly by offering moderately priced products and services backed by expertise and strong customer service. The company now serves customers worldwide from six facilities. We continue to find ways to grow and offer the best suite of aviation products and services.
