About Us

Corey Tomczak

President

As president I am fortunate to work with successful clients of outstanding character to share my love of aviation. Since age 4 I've dreamed of flying and honored to be involved in a fulfilling career. My personal plane is a Piper Twin Comanche and can not imagine life without an aircraft and I hope to share those benefits with all!  You have my word your best interests will be fulfilled and your aircraft will be in outstanding hands.

Message from the President
What We Do

Gateway Jets is your personal flight department. If you or your business own less than 3 aircraft it typically makes sense to outsource your aviation needs to a management company. At Gateway Jets we have become experts in ALL aspects of private aviation. Leave it to us to handle your scheduling needs, maintenance subscriptions, cleaning, fuel savings discount programs, insurance, crew selection and training, regulatory compliance and much more.


Realizing this isn't a one size fits all package we offer flexibility in the way we structure your flight operation. Do you really need a salaried crew or will contract pilots fit the bill?


Gateway Jets can take you from 0 to 500mph quickly. If you don't have an aircraft yet we'll analyze your trips, passenger loads, and determine suitable airplanes at a price point that you're comfortable with.  We can then act as your broker to find you the best value aircraft for the given budget.

Our History

Gateway Jets was founded in 2013 by Corey Tomczak with the intention of providing honest, flexible, and affordable structures to aircraft ownership rather than a 1 size fits all plan.  Corey has been flying corporate aircraft for over 10 years and understands the value and enhancement to quality of life they offer. 


Josh Vinson joined our team in 2014 as Executive Vice President and is a pilot in all of our managed aircraft.  Josh spent many years as an airline pilot but also has a strong business sense and phenomenal customer service skills. 


We have helped numerous individuals and businesses acquire aircraft that match their mission and budget.  Our clients will be happy to provide outstanding recommendations to anybody testifying our knowledge, attention to detail, and customer service.  We go to great lengths to hire dedicated professionals that exhibit the highest levels of sincerity and integrity - from our aircraft detailers to our Vice President.


Our operation serves clients only in the St. Louis area while allowing the flexibility to choose which airport you'd like to be based at.  We love the St. Louis region and are here to stay!

Location

We operate out of both the Spirit of St. Louis Airport and St. Louis Downtown airport.  Recently Gateway Jets moved into a large private corporate hangar at the Downtown Airport.  This new facility offers clients a private roadside entrance, office, kitchen, lounge, and bathroom.  Arrive in privacy and keep your vehicle covered in a heated hangar while you are away from town.


The downtown airport offers a convenient location for clients East of Lindbergh/67.  Basing in Illinois also comes with the benefit of no Personal Property Tax for aircraft hangared in that state.


Gateway Jets also maintains an office at the Spirit of St. Louis Airport, this flexibility allows us to keep our clients needs first!
