In  1963,  just  as  the  very  first  LearJet  models  23  &  24  came  into  use,  OMNI  AIRCRAFT  SALES  opened  its  offices just  outside  Washington  DC.  We  have  been  busy  ever  since  and  have  closed  over  2500  sales.  OMNI  was  a chief  architect  in  the  jet  resale  industry  being  one  of  the  first  companies  in  the  world  to  actively  promote  and develop  a  pre-owned  market  for  the  first  generation  of  business  jets  such  as  the  LearJet,  Jetstar,  Sabreliner and  Gulfstream.  OMNI  created  the  first  comprehensive  database  of  all  private  jets  and  their  owners  in  1968. OMNI  developed  and  refined  many  of  the  offer,  acceptance  and  contract  protocols  still  used  in  the  aircraft sales  industry  today.  Through  the  1980’s  OMNI  pioneered  the  most  innovative  pre-owned  aircraft  advertising brochures.  OMNI  also  pioneered  cold  calling  and  research  calls  of  all  owners  on  a  regular  basis,  a  practice  we still  use  today  and  adopted  by  many  of  our    competitors. The  name  OMNI was  inspired  by  the  Omni VOR  navigation aid. In Greek, it means “in all directions”.

In  1961  and  at  age  20, Wayne  Hilmer  owned  and  operated  a  used  car  lot  just  outside  of Washington  DC  in  the Maryland  suburbs.  He  always  had  interest  in  aviation  and  purchased  his  first  aircraft  prior  to  even  getting  his pilots  license.    He  was  soon  buying  and  selling  light  aircraft  instead  of  cars.  The  company  was  based  at  Hyde field  south  of Washington,  DC.    In  1967,  the  Omni  moved  its  office  next  to  the  new Watergate  office  complex  in downtown Washington, DC.

In  1980,  nearly  20%  of  the  entire  inventory  of  available  pre-owned  aircraft  at  the time  were  listed  exclusively  with  OMNI.  Similar  to  a  stock  exchange,  the  concept of  the  “Omni  International  Jet  Trading  Floor”  was  introduced  due  to  the  volume of  aircraft  sold  and  the  explosive  growth  occurring  in  the  industry  at  that  time.   OMNI  also  purchased  many  pre-owned  aircraft  and  positions  on  new  aircraft, which  it  offered  as  part  of  its  inventory.  In  1979,  OMNI  was  the  first  to  deploy  it’s extensive   aircraft   owner   /   operator   database   on   an   IBM  AS   400   mainframe computer.  Also  in  1979,  the  company  moved  from  the  Watergate  area  to  its  new expanded  offices  in  Bethesda,  Maryland.  In  1985,  OMNI  built  a  20,000  SF  facility on   the   eastern   shore   of   Maryland   called   Easton   Jet   Service   at   the   Easton, Maryland airport for the purpose of storing owned aircraft.

In  1988,  Mr.  Hilmer  Jr.  became  the  president  of  OMNI.  In  1990,  the  1st  Iraq war  created  a  change  in  the  market  and  led  Mr.  Hilmer  Jr.  to  move  the company  to  its  executive  FBO  facility  –  EASTON  JET  SERVICE,  INC  based  in Easton,  Maryland.    This  move  effectively  reorganized  the  company  into  a more  efficient  and  competitive  operation  necessary  to  compete with  many new  aircraft  brokerage  firms  getting  started  at  the  time.  It  also  allowed OMNI  staff  greater  use  of  the  company  aircraft  directly  from  the  office  to meet  clients  and  to  accept  consigned  aircraft  to  OMNI  while  they  were  for sale.  With  the  dawn  of  the  internet,  OMNI  opened  several  satellite  offices and  quickly  embraced  the  marketing  potential  of  the  world  wide  web. During the 1990’s the company traded as the “OMNI Jet Trading Center”

Omni’s  focus  is  exclusively  on  knowing  exactly  what  jet  aircraft  are  selling  for  and  how  to  best  maximize  our clients   position.   With   millions   at   stake,   better   information   produces   superior   results.   Omni   clients   gain immediate  web  enabled  access  to  all  similar  competing  aircraft  to  theirs  for  enhanced  market  awareness  and better  data  for  decision-making.  While  our  services  are  rated  among  the  highest,  our  commissions  are  among the   most   lowest.   At   all   times,   Omni   represents   your   best   interests   as   if   representing   ourselves.   Our commitment to integrity is one of the unwavering foundations of our success
