Our Management Programs

Because you own an aircraft, we understand your responsibility.

A significant expense for many companies with aircraft is staffing and managing a flight department. Our aircraft management programs are designed specifically for you. Let us help you develop a cost effective and efficient program for managing your planes.

Aircraft Specific Routine Maintenance Schedules

Part of our management services includes storing your aircraft for any amount of time that you require. We offer full-service maintenance and avionics departments and will create and implement a routine maintenance schedule specific to your aircraft. From simple repairs to coordinating overhauls, our licensed mechanics will have your plane ready to fly when you are.

Your Personalized Flight Crew Is Standing By

Should you need a flight crew, we employ fully qualified pilots who fly your plane on your schedule. From flight scheduling to cleaning and maintenance, we’re prepared to make owning your plane effortless.

Charter Revenue Opportunities

An idle aircraft accrues the highest operating cost. Contact us to discuss placing your aircraft in our charter fleet. We can help you fill idle time and reduce costs substantially. But, rest assured, your own schedule dictates the availability of your aircraft in our charter fleet, so it will be available when you need it.

Charter Revenue Opportunities

We can reduce your cost of ownership.

Place your aircraft on our Part 135 charter certificate to help manage the cost of an idle crew and aircraft – one of the highest operating costs of aircraft ownership. Your schedule dictates when we operate a  charter revenue producing flight for you as our aircraft management programs are designed specifically for you. Let us help you develop a cost effective and efficient program for managing your aircraft.
