The station is backed by a team of volunteers who broadcast an array of live shows consisting of music, entertainment and aviation related news. There have been interviews conducting with other businesses one being Infinite Flight in May 2019.[1]

The station was founded in 2013 before being taken over by TFDi Corp in 2015, which also manages TFDi Design.[2] The station was intended to be a community project and did not want to operate under a business model [2]and is still operating under the same structure.

Launched in 2013, JetStream Radio was developed to be a community project and not follow a general business model.

In May 2015 the station was taken over by TFDI Corp[4] which also manages TFDi Design and it was implemented in their Flight Simulation Tracking Software, which is used by a number of Virtual Airlines, SmartCARS.[5] This allows users to do is track, monitor and interact with their fellow fliers through one forum. JetStream Radio was implemented into SmartCARS so users could listen to Music and Live Shows while in the air.

In 2017 they created a Discord Server which is place where communities ranging from gamers to education and businesses can interact with their customers or colleagues.[6] They use their server to interact with their listeners, do giveaways and allow them to connect with the staff on a more personal level. They gained 500 users within the year.

In late 2019 the station went through an entire rebrand which saw their logo and website be improved to latest and current version. This included their back-end system being developed from the ground up in order to serve the community better.[3]

In early 2020 the introduction of daily aviation, flight simulation and music news articles being posted on their website. This year would be when they improved their playlist and did an extensive campaign to fill their schedules with new DJs to help provide live shows at any given time.[8] They were going to be attending Flight Sim Expo 2020 [9] but due to the Coronavirus Pandemic, and its history of cancelling events,[10] forced the organizers of the annual event to cancel. It was scheduled to run June 12 - 14.[11]


JetStream Radio broadcasts a variety of content to their listeners which is delivered by their team positioned all over the world.

It uses a system called AzuraCast which allows them to use a program called AutoDJ to ensure that music plays around the clock even when nobody is currently live on the station. This allows them to serve listeners who might not be in a timezone which is covered by their live shows.
