Born in Wilmington, Delaware and raised on the beautiful island of Puerto Rico, Manny has always had a passion for aviation. This love began when he started at Isla Grande Flying School. While studying for his private pilotâ€™s license, Manny worked as key server and lead bartender in the most prestigious CC of Puerto Rico, Caparra Country Club. Here, he built strong long-lasting relationships with some of the wealthiest individuals on the island. During his time in pilot school and while balancing two jobs, Manny gained an invaluable experience in multitasking, time management, customer service and most importantly, offering his guestâ€™s an experience that was paramount to all others.
Manny has always focused and believed that all his customers needed to be treated with the best service. These relationships formed over his schooling career lead him to Delaware, where he met the love of his life Jasmine & started their Family. Through this move, he was recruited by Kevin Wargo, a legend in the private aviation world, and has not left his side since 2014. The addition of Manny to the AAG, Encore and Wing Aviation Group companies has been invaluable & without his constant contributions in every department, the three companies would not be where they are today. Emanuel â€œMagic Mannyâ€ Perez-Reyes now resides in Winter Garden, Florida with his soul mate and three children.
When he is not working, he enjoys spending quality time with his family, working on his toys and â€œruffâ€ housing with his American Staffordshire Terrier, Chase, the AAG warehouse mascot.
