Hudson, Ohio: CEO’s company offers unique opportunity to combine jets, luxury cars

Hudson -- People who had the chance to tour private jets at Cuyahoga County Airport in early August at the "Road to the Runway" event got a taste of the business run by Hudson resident Mike Silvestro. 

Silvestro, who learned to fly years ago, teamed up with his friend and college classmate Kenn Ricci, who founded Flight Options in 1988. Ricci is chairman of the company.

Flight Options in Richmond Heights, where Silvestro is the CEO, offers fractional ownership of jet planes to companies and executives.

"It's a rather unique business," Silvestro said. "It's functional and fun."

He described his duties as CEO as numerous.

Silvestro said he spends a lot of time with customers. He added it is a serious business, complying with FAA regulations, maintenance and scheduling of a fleet of 100 jets all across the country.

Flight Options, based in Richmond Heights, collaborated with Collection Auto Group, based in North Olmsted, which deals with luxury auto sales and leases, to bring "Road to the Runway" to Cuyahoga County Airport in August.
