Pilots know that 88 West is the longitude of Chicago, and company president Mike Guillemot knows that because he’s a pilot, too.

But the name 88West was chosen not just to reflect where we are; it also reflects who we are. Mike was born and raised in Kansas City, MO, and we wanted to give a nod to the Midwestern heritage of our company because our Midwestern values are the driving force behind what we do.

Midwesterners are known for their strong work ethic, their honesty, and their strength of character. We are known for those things, too.

Above all else, we value integrity, authenticity, and trustworthiness.

Mike Guillemot has spent decades in corporate jet sales, with experience at Hawker, Bendix King, Mooney Aircraft and Sojourn Aviation. With 25 years of experience as a pilot as well, Mike has a unique understanding of both the operational side of the business and the sales side.

Ultimately, when you choose to work with 88West for your corporate jet transaction, you choose to work with someone who knows how to fly, how to sell, how to negotiate, and how to stay true to his Midwestern roots.

We want to build a relationship,
not just a transaction
