As a full service bank chartered in 1987 by the state of Florida, Pilot Bank provides retail, commercial, and investment services to individuals, businesses, and institutions within the Greater Tampa Bay Region. Pilot Bank serves as a community bank that is presently growing to more than $280 million in assets.
Pilot bank established its holding company, Pilot Bancshares, Inc. in October 1995. One unique aspect is that Pilot Bancshares, Inc. acquired a specialized lending organization called National Aircraft Finance Company (NAFCO). This partnership allows for Pilot Bank to occupy a unique niche as well as offering a financial asset to the corporation. NAFCO serves clients nationwide by providing concentrated and customized financing within non-commercial general aviation (such as helicopters or corporate planes). Not only does NAFCO maintain a strong affiliation with the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association but remains to be a well-known brand throughout the aviation industry.
The mission at Pilot Bank is to provide financial products and services that are designed to assist customers managing both their personal as well as business matters as conveniently as possible. With that being said, Pilot Bank differentiates itself through its passion for service and the love for helping individuals, families, and businesses to plan for the future. The employees at Pilot Bank take the time to engage with customers and knowing them on a personal level by assessing, understanding, and servicing their needs.
Because businesses continually catalyze job growth and opportunity both regionally and nationally, Pilot bank fervently assists small businesses in getting started as well as cultivating monetary infrastructure. Furthermore, Pilot Bank uncovers solutions for many businesses and prides itself on being, “Entrepreneurs helping Entrepreneurs”. Therefore, with the acceleration of business within the Tampa Bay Market, there is a need for a bank that preserves strong leadership and maintains robust and long-term relationships with both its clients and other businesses.
Despite numerous acquisitions of community banks within the last 30 years, Pilot Bank has continued to flourish throughout the region as a result of its investments within the community.
