Taking to the Skies with Sentinel Air

As the world continues to turn and pivot with not only the challenges life and especially a pandemic continuously throw at us, but also with new and innovative ways and technologies that we find ourselves adapting to, Sentinel has once again found more ways to adapt and become more flexible.

We have pushed ourselves to new levels time and time again this past year and a half and once again we are reaching for the stars with one of our new and exclusive offerings. 

Welcome to Sentinel Air. 

We have partnered with Novajet, a leading innovator when it comes to aircraft charter that thrives on business and high end travel. Providing top notch services to those who continue and wish to travel. 

Their charter services range from light all the way to heavy weight jets. Their experience, service, and professionalism are always keeping your safety and well being at the forefront of their minds. 

Novajets clients and guests are treated like family. No stone is left unturned as they continue to be leaders in their industry. 

We have partnered with them to ensure the safety of their guests are kept at the high level of care and professionalism you would expect from such a high class organization. 

In doing so, we have created the Sentinel Academy. 

A breeding ground of training, knowledge, and expertise led by our resident in-house close protection director Joe Balz. 

Joe brings a wealth of experience and knowledge over his decades spent leading security teams around the globe. Having worked with all levels of clientele from celebrities to the Royal Family, his skills and mindset are all encompassing when it comes down to first class protective services. He has been part of the Sentinel family for the better part of a decade and continues to help us not just build our client base, but also build our teams that work in this field. 

He leads our close protection workshops and invites not just our own team, but outsiders as well to gain in the foundational knowledge that has helped build and maintain our successful close protection division. 

After many years of ups and downs and an ever changing landscape, we were truly able to see who stood out from the crowd. A group of individuals that made Sentinel their family and a priority. Giving and showing their utmost best in terms of quality, professionalism, skills, expertise, and commitment. 

These individuals take their roles in not just their own personal lives, but also their professional lives incredibly seriously. Those who are fortunate enough to work with or alongside them, benefit from the knowledge and skills they are more than willing to impart and speak to.  

They are a true testament to being leaders within our circle and embrace this role by motivating others, – leading, teaching and coaching their peers to help elevate them to the next level. 

The Sentinel Academy has allowed us to grow the potential and knowledge of this small circle. 

Regular training sessions offering both in class and hands on training. Truly ensuring that we can practice what we preach and maintaining the skills and service levels our client based is built on. 

While we do occasionally open up the fundamental basics of this course and other varying levels to our entire team as well as anyone willing and wanting to learn more – only a mere few often get the chance to grow into this role. 

Our Close Protection team is hand picked from our staff based on watching work ethic, skills, willingness to commit, as well as those showing the ability and desire to not only increase their skillset but also elevate their careers. 

Anyone interested in a career in close protection is open to apply to our organization and work their way up through the ranks of our Sentinel Family by showcasing what they have to offer and standing out as a leader in this industry. 

And for those of you desiring a first class exit from this seemingly never ending pandemic, and to jump back into travel – we encourage you to check out Novajet and the services they have to offer. From business to personal, large to small, they are standing by to ensure your travel needs are not only met, but exceeded.
