Today, more than ever, chartering aircraft is all the rage. But long before it was cool, Western Aircraft’s Westair Charter was already paving the way for flying business and leisure travelers. Recently, it celebrated its 20th year of charter service.
Western Aircraft’s Vice President for Aircraft Sales & Charter Management Phil Winters has been with the company since 1997, overseeing the growth of Western’s charter business while also watching the growth of the industry.
“We are proud to be celebrating this milestone and be a long-standing partner to the business aviation community,” said Winters.“ At the same time, I’m excited about the future as I observe the charter industry’s steady growth due to increasing productive business and family flight schedule options.”
Westair Charter has equally been seeing an upswing in its aircraft management services. It recently added its 16th managed aircraft, a Pilatus PC-24 to its management and Part 135 certificate based in Boise, Idaho. Westair Charter and Aircraft Management operates a variety of aircraft from various locations throughout the lower 48 United States and Hawaii.
