Jet Sales & Acquisitions since 1963
1963 to 1980
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.   Omni   first   opened   it’s   doors   in June   1963   as   OMNI   AIRCRAFT   SALES,   specializing   in   the   resale   of   piston   twins   and   early   turboprop   aircraft.   The company   was   based   in   a   small   office   south   of   Washington,   DC.      In   1967,   the   Omni   moved   its   office   next   to   the new   Watergate   office   complex   in   downtown   Washington,   DC.   Mr.   Hilmer   was   one   of   the   first   to   actively promote   and   develop   a   pre-owned   market   for   the   first   generation   of   business   jets   such   as   the   Sabreliners, Jetstars,   early   Gulfstreams   and   Lear   20   series,   which   were   available   at   the   time.      The   first   comprehensive database   of   all   private   jets   and   their   owners   was   created   by   Omni   beginning   in   1968.   During   this   time,   Omni developed   and   refined   many   of   the   offer,   acceptance   and   contract   protocols   still   used   in   the   aircraft   sales industry   today.    OMNI   pioneered   the   most   innovative   pre-owned   aircraft   advertising   brochures   at   the   time. Many   thousands   were   sent   to   all   private   aircraft   owners   and   operators   regularly.   Also   during   this   time,   Omni also   pioneered   cold   calling   and   research   of   all   owners   on   a   regular   basis,   a   practice   we   still   use   today   and adopted   by   many   of   our   competitors.   Omni   was   the   first   to   track   every   transaction   and   owner   of   a   private   jet aircraft regularly. We received many information requests from government agencies and lending institutions.

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”.
