Vail Valley Jet Center shareholder Fred Hamilton passes away at 89 (1927-2016)
Fred was well known for his dedicated work ethic and in an interview with the Denver Post in 2014 said, “I’d like people to remember me as hardworking and that I worked all my life. I’d like to be known as someone with integrity. That I had understanding and sensitivity to people. And as someone cognizant that you have to give back to the system when you’ve been successful. You can’t just take. You have to give back.” Fred will be sincerely missed by his VVJC family and all those who knew him.
The Vail Valley Jet Center was voted Healthiest Workplace in 2015!

Jim Allen • 1935-2011
On June 23, Jim Allen passed away surrounded by family, friends and loved ones at the Aurora Medical Center in Denver. Jim left this world in the very same fashion that he lived his life here, full of joy, happiness and surrounded by people he loved.
As CEO of the Vail Valley Jet Center, he was able to combine his visionary talents with his passion for flying. Jim’s biggest dream for the airport was not only in transforming it from a regional to an international airport, but also for the VVJC to be among the top 10 FBOs in the country. He was really pleased with our accomplishments this year.
The airport was just a small part of the work Jim was involved in; he also dedicated his time to the Youth Foundation, as well as served on numerous other nonprofit boards.
His legacy lives on through the community and here at the Vail Valley Jet Center and the Eagle County Airport.
