Today we’d like to introduce you to Anthony Thurston.
Thanks for sharing your story with us Anthony. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
My father was an engineer and had to privilege of traveling the world. Thinking back to my youth, my passion for aviation began with a video game called Zaxxon. In this game, you are pilot whose mission is to attack enemy’s headquarters by destroying the fuel tanks, gun emplacements, missiles, fighters and a large enemy robot. Who knew almost twenty years later I would be one of the founding members of a Private Aviation Company.
Dream Flights Intl originally, starting as a private helicopter charter, later transforming into a private jet Company, committed to making a difference in the world.
Has it been a smooth road?
Absolutely not! 18 years ago I was just a man with a Dream [pun intended] who did not know anyone who flew privately. I was fortunate to have two mentors, a real estate mogul and a former Air Force One Pilot. They taught me valuable lessons that I still reference today.
In the beginning, I guess my biggest challenge was learning the business of private aviation and understanding its clientele. I didn’t have any startup capital and built this company one relationship at a time through strategic partnerships. Today we have clients across America as well as the Caribbean, Europe, and Africa.
So, as you know, we’re impressed with Dream Flights International – tell our readers more, for example what you’re most proud of as a company and what sets you apart from others.

Unchanged by seasonal pricing and create a 10% donation from our net product value back into charities, foundations, or community programs of the purchasers’ choice.
Although we charter jet on-demand from any point of origin, our Plus Card™ program is the most flexible and fiscal sound means of flying privately. Members purchase bulk hours of flight-time in increments of 25, 50, or 100+ hours coupled with chauffeured ground transportation and premium catering. All taxes, fees, fuel surcharges, and gratuities included.
Changing the world is a big deal for us. We believe in doing business differently to make a difference. And you can’t do that without adopting the business practices that enable our team to follow our heartfelt dedication to social innovation. Providing a luxurious necessity that automatically funds civil society, recycling dollars from the normal lifestyle purchases of the financially elite who seek to give back is our differentiator. We do this in a fashion that effortlessly leverages consumer spending that was going to happen anyway. We’re positioned to build bridges that span disconnected social circumstances and promote philanthropic responsibility throughout the world.
We excel in applying creative solutions to our underlying purpose of building up civil society, and we cordially invite you to join us in our philanthropic paradigm of investing 10 percent of our net product value back into society as a funding lens directed towards the advancement of civil society.
Let’s touch on your thoughts about our city – what do you like the most and least?
Its diversity is what I like most about the city. I love Houston.
