VizStar, Inc. (VIZS.PK) Continues to Thrive

Thursday, December 16th, 2010

VizStar, Inc., dba Celestial Jets, is a fast growing aviation charter broker, not in spite of the rough economy, but perhaps because of it. The reason is believed to be the economic and competitive advantage the company offers businesses and individuals. As Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban said when asked about business leaders who have stopped flying private aircraft due to negative public reaction, “I just hope I compete with them. I get to work while they get to stand in line at the airport.”

But cost pressures are forcing everyone to take a dark look at expenditures. Owning and operating one or more private aircraft for the benefit of executives is falling victim to hard times. The question becomes, how to maintain the competitive advantage offered by more efficient travel, while reducing the financial burdens of fleet operation. The answer seems to be the use of private jet charter, letting someone else take care of aircraft purchase, operation, and maintenance. And, of all charter companies, VizStar appears to represent the most cost effective business model for the user.

VizStar avoids the financial and operational nightmare of owning its own aircraft, instead focusing on developing a hyper-efficient global network of relationships, allowing them to provide any size aircraft, at any location, with minimal notice and cost. To this they add a host of high-end service options to perfectly fit client requirements.

• The company delivers the most competitive pricing in the industry, with savings of 20%-30% over other services.
• There are no membership fees, initiation fees, or long-term commitments.
• Service is available 24/7, in as little as four hours.
• The company offers everything from short hops to intercontinental flights, business or pleasure, for any number of people.
• VizStar service options, from coordinated limousine pickup and delivery, to business services, entertainment, and every kind of custom food request, have set the standard for charter air travel.
• Every client charter is supported by a Personal Aviation Concierge, able to handle the many available service options and other flight details.

VizStar, Inc. (VIZS.PK) – The Safest Way To Fly

Monday, October 25th, 2010

VizStar, dba Celestial Jets, the growing high-end aviation charter broker, has gone out of its way to establish a reputation of safety and security, a major factor in an industry full of small companies virtually unknown to many users.

To address any concerns, VizStar has established what it considers to be the most comprehensive set of safety and quality standards in the industry today. The idea is to be proactive instead of waiting for a problem to occur before addressing it.

• Each Jet, in correspondence with FAA law, is flown by 2 pilots, each with outstanding credentials

• Every pilot is certified and type rated for the aircraft they are flying, having completed a minimum of 3,500 hours of flight time which includes 1,000 hours of cross country air time (100 of which are required to be completed at night)

• It is mandatory for each of the pilots to maintain all instruments to the Airline Transport Certificate rating within the specific aircraft category

• All aspects of the flight, including the maintenance and operation of the aircraft and facilities, are kept up to code according to FAA and TSA statutes. Any aircraft chartered with Celestial Jets, as well as the runways, have been certified and approved by the FAA

• All U.S. chartered flights have been awarded a rating of gold or higher by the Aircraft Research Group/US. In addition, the company can offer comparable ratings for all non-U.S. based
aircraft. Regardless of its location, each aircraft is FAR part 135 and 91 regulated and obliged to carry a detailed maintenance log on board at all times

• Celestial Jets abides be the strict protocol of the Transportation Security Administration, the FAA, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and all other federal and local law enforcement agencies

• In accordance with the TSA and ICE, government issued photo IDs detailing the full legal names of all occupants aboard the aircraft must be introduced prior to aircraft boarding

• Any aircraft left unsupervised is locked and secured by authorized personnel. All persons boarding the aircraft must be accompanied by a crew member. If additional safety measures are required, Celestial Jets offers armed and unarmed security details, upon request

VizStar, Inc. (VIZS.OB) Flying Higher Since Merger with Celestial

Thursday, October 14th, 2010

When VizStar merged with Celestial Jets in June of this year, it became the country’s premier aviation charter broker. The company’s idea was no less than to revolutionize charter air travel by making it easy, comfortable, efficient, and cost effective to a degree unmatched by any other service in the industry. By avoiding the pitfalls of traditional air charter operations, such as direct aircraft ownership, the company has been able to put together an exceptional package of features which is both compelling and sustainable.

• Every charter involves a Personal Aviation Concierge, responsible for every aspect of the trip. The company offers so many options that it was considered critical to have a single individual able to seamlessly integrate whatever was needed, allowing high-end clients to relax and focus on more important things.

• Even at the top end of personal air transportation, pricing can be a consideration, and the company, taking advantage of its especially efficient business model, meets the issue head on by providing the most competitive pricing in the industry, delivering savings of 20%-30% over other services.

• In the competitive aviation charter industry, the company knew that payment flexibility was important to the marketplace, and removed all concerns up front by eliminating membership fees, initiation fees, long-term commitments or capital investment requirements.

• The company can arrange a trip in as little as four hours, meeting the fast turnaround and minimal lead times so essential to its target market.

• With access to over 5,700 qualified aircraft of all sizes worldwide, they have no trouble arranging short hops or intercontinental flights, business or pleasure, for any number of people.

• From coordinated limousine pickup and delivery, to business services, entertainment, and every kind of food request, the company has built an unparalleled reputation of customer service that is perhaps more important than anything else for the level of people it serves.

VizStar, Inc. (VIZS.OB) Takes Advantage Of The Economy

Monday, October 4th, 2010

Recently, Gary Clyburn, the CEO of VizStar, issued a letter to the investment community outlining the company’s current position and direction. The information presented is critical to anyone considering investing in VizStar, since it reflects the company’s strategy as it relates to the on-going recessionary climate. Unlike many company’s, VizStar is not simply waiting for the economy to improve, but has instead taken specific steps to leverage the current economic crisis to its own advantage. We felt the information was important enough to include here in its entirety.

Dear present and many future VizStar shareholders,

In the near future, we will be changing our name to Celestial Jets to better reflect our business operations. We are a private jet company that is using state of the art telecommunications technology to provide on-demand private jet service to a large and lucrative market, the upper income individual. This multi-billion dollar market is best represented by the 55 million premium airline seats available today, which together represent approximately 10% of all airline seats.

We feel that the recent recession has created a once in a lifetime opportunity to bring private jet service to these customers at affordable prices. Prior to the start of the recession in 2007, there was an explosion of private jet demand by corporations and extremely wealthy individuals. We saw the rise of Berkshire Hathaway’s Net Jets’ fractional share service whereby people would purchase a stake in an aircraft. Then there was Marquis Jets whereby people would pay $250,000 – $1,000,000 annually for a certain number of hours of private jet travel time. These programs created a large fleet of privately owned jets as demand soared due to passengers’ reactions to the delays caused by increasingly burdensome security at the major airports as well as the over-leveraged growth of the economy from 2001 – 2007.

However, the recent housing bubble burst, and consequent debt-laden recession, has forced private jet demand to drop dramatically. Moreover, public resentment for corporations that used their own private jets ignited when top auto executives flew to Washington on their corporate jets to beg Congress for bailout money. These conditions have created a large under-utilized fleet of highly efficient, private jets. The owners of these jets are looking for any source of income to offset their large losses in other economic areas of their life and are much more open to renting their jets out. This is the impetus that is allowing private jet service to be remade in the model of the private limo service.

Celestial Jets will grow in this market through a roll up strategy, acquiring the assets of jet charter businesses which have suffered in the recession. We have identified six potential targets for acquisition that fit our model and estimate they will add in excess of $40 million in revenue and $4 million in operating earnings by year-end. To solidify our growth, we are offering the highest commission payouts in the industry, creating the friendliest jet broker environment and an effective tool when recruiting additional brokers.

In addition, we will use modern technology to auction off unused seats on private aircraft that never used to be rented. It will be similar to “StubHub” or “eBay” for the private jet world. Celestial’s platform will also include various products and services to drastically reduce the cost of private jet charter and expand the market by creating a jet sharing program by the seat. This model will allow those who travel first class, business class, and even coach class to enjoy all the comforts and luxuries of private jet travel at prices much closer to a commercial flight. Our service will allow private jet travel with no up-front cash commitment; no monthly fees; and provide a 24 hour personalized concierge service. Customers will be able to book flights through the internet, aviation specialists and mobile applications such as Apple Inc.’s iPhone and Research in Motion’s BlackBerry.

We are confident that this two-prong strategy will show near term sales and earnings from consolidation, but more importantly, it will enable Celestial Jets to become one of the fastest growing technology companies serving the air flight consumption market over the next 2-4 years. I encourage investors to join us by purchasing shares and benefit from the company’s future earnings growth and consequent increasing share prices.

Sincerely,
Gary Clyburn Jr.

VizStar, Inc. (VIZS.OB) Flys Well Ahead of Competitors

Friday, September 24th, 2010

Private aviation broker VizStar Inc., dba Celestial Jets, is unique in its industry, with some very specific things going for it. Headquartered in New York, the company provides upscale charter aviation services to entertainers, athletes, executives, and even government agencies. And it does it all on an as-need quick-response basis, without demanding membership or initiation fees. Customers just call and fly from any point to any other point, using any one of 5700 available aircraft, completely avoiding the wait and the hassle normally associated with air travel.

• The company offers competitive charter rates, but without the upfront charges, an important differentiator in a very competitive, though expanding, marketplace.
• Instead of having to maintain a fleet of its own planes, limiting availability and increasing fixed costs, the company has access to thousands of outside charter aircraft. The customer can have any size plane required, anywhere in the world, with only a few hours notice.
• They offer every conceivable option, from customer pickup and delivery, to food and business service requirements, making it as easy and pleasurable for the customer as possible.
• The company has laid out a definite growth strategy, acquiring the assets of jet charter businesses which have suffered from the recession. They’ve already identified a number of prospective targets, potentially generating over $40 million in annual revenue and $4 million in operating earnings.
• By using technology to auction off vacant seats on private aircraft, the company helps maintain the lowest possible costs.
• Customers will be able to book flights via the Internet and mobile applications.

Add to this the fact that their market continues to grow. According to the FAA, “The demand for business jet aircraft has grown over the past several years. New product offerings, the introduction of very light jets, and increasing foreign demand have helped to drive this growth. In addition, corporate safety/security concerns for corporate staff, combined with increasing flight delays at some U.S. airports have made fractional, corporate, and on-demand charter flights practical alternatives to travel on commercial flights. Despite the hard impact of the recession felt in the business jet market, the forecast calls for robust growth in the long term outlook and predicts business usage of general aviation aircraft will expand at a faster pace than that for personal/recreational use.”

VizStar, Inc. (VIZS.OB) Grows West

Thursday, August 26th, 2010

Perhaps the most remarkable thing about upscale air travel broker VizStar Inc., doing business as Celestial Jets, is that it has somehow managed to give its expanding list of clients the best of two worlds. Specifically, it offers world-class luxury travel, but at a discounted no-contract price. It’s a unique combination that has special appeal to high-profile personalities looking to maintain an efficient first class lifestyle while trimming increasingly stressed personal and corporate budgets.
As a logical next step, VizStar recently opened a brand new office in none other than the Beverly Hills area of Los Angeles, tapping into the massive amount of private air travel in the region, and especially the image conscious entertainment industry. The new office, appropriately located on Sunset Boulevard, is able to provide the company’s famous 5-star service, with as little as 4-hours lead time.

But the office targets far more than just Beverly Hills and the entertainment industry. The company intends to serve the entire Los Angeles and San Fernando Valley area, providing a more effective presence to serve busy executives or anyone seeking what is certainly the most comfortable way to travel. Making it even easier, VizStar requires no monthly fees, membership costs, or long term commitments.

VizStar CEO, Gary Clyburn, Jr., spoke of what the new office means to company growth. “Not only does this office offer enhanced convenience to our customers, it allows us to easily market to the large enterprises operating in the local area. We feel that our safety and service offerings will persuade new clients to use our services and gain further market penetration on the West Coast.”

The West Coast initiative is seen as the latest success in VizStar’s role as the fastest growing premier aviation charter broker.

VizStar Inc. (VIZS.OB) Led by Experienced Management Team

Friday, August 20th, 2010

VizStar Inc., doing business as Celestial Jets, is a premier aviation charter broker focused on delivering a new and unparalleled way to experience private jet travel. The company delivers this unmatched service without any fees, long-term commitments or capital outlay, while offering savings of 20-30% when compared to other firms in the marketplace.

The company is led by a solid and experienced three-person management team:

Gary Clyburn Jr. – President, CEO and Director of the Company

Mr. Clyburn is an accomplished software executive with experience in the health care industry and information technology. From 2002 to 2007, he was the director of technology for a hospital in New Jersey. From 2007 until he joined Celestial Jets, Mr. Clyburn operated his own company – Nav IT – which was involved in providing information technology services in various business fields principally related to the health care industry. Before the merger with VizStar, he was the chief executive officer of Celestial Jets.

Sharon Singer – CFO and Director of the Company

Ms. Singer has over 25 years of business experience, with the past 15 years in the financial services industry. Most recently, she was a senior leader and global director at both Credit Suisse and Goldman Sachs. For 13 years, she supported both front and back office divisions, including but not limited to financial and product control, risk management, operations and information technology.

VizStar, Inc. (VIZS.OB) Uses Commission Program To Draw Clients And Control Costs

Monday, August 16th, 2010

One of the growth tools used by VizStar Inc., a growing aviation charter broker doing business as Celestial Jets, is their hefty commission package. By offering independent contractors and employees the opportunity to make significant sums by identifying and servicing clients, VizStar leverages its marketing efforts and encourages an expanding customer base. It also helps to control costs since money is paid only after needed services are rendered.

Commissions range from 10% to 35% of the cost of the flight, and are estimated to average approximately 17% to 20% of the total flight charge. Commissions obviously depend upon normal business factors such as competition in the applicable market, and basic supply and demand. The company gives initial flight discounts to increase its customer base, and thus commission margins are lower as it ramps up its operations.

If a prospect is generated from the company’s own marketing efforts, then the contractor or employee is normally paid 30% of the commission, as compensation to work with the customer and finalize the transaction. If the flight opportunity originated from the contractor’s or employee’s own relationships, then the employee or contractor normally receives 60% of the full commission.

Revenue is formally recognized once persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists, services have been performed, the sales price is fixed or determinable, and collectability is probable. (In general, the company recognizes net revenue as being the difference between the gross amount paid to it by its customers and the amount it remits to the provider of the chartered flight.)

The company allows customers the right to cancel brokered airline trips up to 24 hours prior to departure for domestic flights, and up to 48 hours before departure for international flights. Payment is due from the customer no later than when the right to cancel expires and revenue is formally recognized once the flight is completed (or scheduled to complete if the flight was cancelled too late). The company accepts advanced deposits from customers as pre-payment for multiple flights in the future, and these amounts are deferred until the right to cancel expires.

With this well thought-out and extremely competitive commission program, VizStar is in an excellent position to increase market share in the growing jet charter industry. According to the FAA: “The demand for business jet aircraft has grown over the past several years. New product offerings, the introduction of very light jets, and increasing foreign demand have helped to drive this growth. In addition, corporate safety/security concerns for corporate staff, combined with increasing flight delays at some U.S. airports have made fractional, corporate, and on-demand charter flights practical alternatives to travel on commercial flights. Despite the hard impact of the recession felt in the business jet market, the forecast calls for robust growth in the long-term outlook, and predicts business usage of general aviation aircraft will expand at a faster pace than that for personal/recreational use.”

The Future Of Air Travel

Wednesday, July 28th, 2010

On September 11th, with the intentional crashing of four commercial jet airliners and the subsequent air traffic shutdown, air travel was permanently altered, never to be viewed in the same way by the travelling public, never to be dealt with in the same way by government or industry. It was the opening door to the most chaotic and financially stressful decade in the long history of commercial air travel, ending a period of record profits and growth for airlines.

The terrorist strike brought with it a wave of changes intended to secure commercial skies, but changes which, to the flying public, began to make modern air travel more of a problem than a solution. The financial pressures of imposed regulations, together with an increasingly disenchanted customer base, were soon joined by oil price spikes and bird flu scares. And then came the spreading financial meltdown, prompting dramatic travel reductions by companies all over the world. The perfect storm was too much for some players. Airline bankruptcies and mergers increased, with four bankruptcy filings in April of 2008 alone, a record for the industry.

Today, in spite of an overall industrial outlook that remains dismal, airlines have some hope for improved numbers. While travelers rile over increased fees for almost everything, they are still flying. And airline capacity has not grown during this time, meaning that the supply of seats is about the same or less. The lack of physical growth within the industry, coupled with continued demand and higher charges, suggests a real potential for profit, something not seen in a long time.

While all of this has been going on, there’s been another battle for the skies that will ultimately have its own effect on the future of air travel, one taking place between the two remaining giants of commercial air travel, Airbus and Boeing. Long before the above events, Airbus and Boeing were mapping out strategies for dealing with rising fuel costs, environmental and noise concerns, and growing public demand for cheaper and more efficient transportation. As far back as 1988, Airbus engineers began planning for what would become the world’s biggest commercial aircraft, the A380, capable of holding up to 853 people in some configurations. The idea was that, if a big airplane could fly people cheaply, an even bigger airplane could fly more people even more cheaply. The first A380 was delivered to Singapore Airlines in 2007, with the airline later claiming that the airplane was indeed burning 20% less fuel per passenger than the airline’s existing 747-400 fleet, and with half the cabin noise.

Boeing approached the challenge from a different angle, resulting in the 787 “Dreamliner”, now anticipating delivery in early 2011. Like Airbus, Boeing targeted fuel efficiency and noise, but in a smaller and less expensive package. Boeing says the 787 is 60% quieter, and uses 20% less fuel, but is also smaller and more flexible, with fewer restrictions. Boeing has already gotten over 800 orders for the plane, the fastest selling commercial jet in history, with the first delivery planned for Japan’s All Nippon Airways.

Both Airbus and Boeing make many other aircraft, which, together with the A380 and 787, all target slightly different markets. But these two aircraft give an idea of what airlines will have going for them in the near future – greater fuel efficiency and less noise. And it’s the fuel efficiency component that airlines hope will most help the bottom line. Below are some of the less conspicuous publicly traded airline related stocks.

• AirTran Holdings (NYSE: AAI)
• ACE Aviation Holdings (PINKSHEETS: ACEAF)
• Great Lakes Aviation (OTCBB: GLUX)
• JetBlue Airways (NASDAQ: JBLU)
• Pinnacle Airlines (NASDAQ: PNCL)
• Republic Airways Holdings (NASDAQ: RJET)
• Ryanair Holdings (NASDAQ: RYAAY)
• SkyWest (NASDAQ: SKYW)

But there’s another side to commercial air travel, a rapidly growing niche market catering to those that can afford it. It’s the world of aviation charter, perhaps best represented by the premier aviation charter broker VizStar (OTCBB: VIZS), the brainchild of a group of opportunistic investors who realized there was a vast and unmet market for luxury, hassle-free private travel at reduced costs on an as-needed basis. It’s for people who have no intention of putting up with crowded terminals, baggage check-in, delayed flights, or cramped seating. With VizStar, efficient and appealing air travel for executives makes economic sense to corporations trying to reduce the costs of maintaining their own aircraft.

Imagine scheduling a flight only a few hours before you want to fly someplace, business or pleasure, regardless of where you want to go. A chauffeured limo picks you up, at work or at home, and drops you off right by your own plane, any size plane, along with whoever you’re taking along. No baggage check-in, no lines, no delays. You leave whenever you want, on a luxury plane with plenty of room to stretch, and endless amenities to enjoy. You arrive non-stop, totally refreshed, where a limo takes you to your final destination. You’re already looking forward to the flight back.

You don’t have to own the plane, and neither does your company. It’s all chartered. It’s the epitome of luxury travel, and yet, in the world of chartered air travel, it’s amazingly affordable, with clients saving 20%-30% over traditional air charter companies. There are no monthly fees, no up-front commitments, no membership costs at all. And it’s available 24/7/365.

For a growing number of companies and fortunate people, the VizStar model is the real future of air travel.

Under its business plan, VizStar has a number of future revenue opportunities. These opportunities include:

Aircraft management – Celestial Jets can function as an intermediary between its customers that own aircraft and an aircraft management company that will provide maintenance and flight services to third parties. These third parties may need to charter a flight on a plane for a particular need on short notice. VizStar will earn fees for making the arrangements between the aircraft owners and the management company and brokering the charter flights.

Purchase and Sale of Aircraft – Celestial Jets intends to expand its activities in other airline-related fields including acting as a broker in the purchase or sale of aircraft. A majority of purchases of used aircraft are conducted through brokers and the commissions paid to the broker can reach 2-3% of the final sale price, which can be substantial when aircraft prices are in the $20 million range.

Dealing in Fractional Ownership Shares – Purchasers of fractional ownership interests in aircraft sometimes find themselves no longer in need of the interest they bought. VizStar believes that this presents a profitable revenue opportunity by allowing the purchase of fractional interests at a discount and the resale of those interests to third parties in need of partial use of an aircraft.

Stripped Fuel Contract – VizStar believes that in periods of fluctuating airline fuel prices, opportunities exist to generate income from separating fractional ownership interests in an aircraft from a fixed price fuel contract that is often attached to the ownership interest.
