Owner

Former President of Ranco Trailers, Bill Carder, started Eclipse Private Jet Management in 2008 out of necessity: to eliminate the five hours he had to spend driving to Denver International Airport, parking, clearing the security checkpoint and waiting at the gate. Eclipse soon expanded into managing jets for other owners, including providing pilots, fueling, maintenance, and other logistics tasks for flights to most U.S. locations as well as some in Canada and Mexico. Bill and his wife Nikki are avid supporters of local economic development and charity causes and enjoy golfing and traveling.
