WESTMINSTER, Md., March 16, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Skytech, Inc., a General Aviation company specializing in Aircraft Sales, Maintenance, Aircraft Management and Fixed Based Operations is adding another branch to their list of services – Aircraft Charter provided by Skytech Travel LLC. The first aircraft available for air taxi work is a Pilatus PC-12 single-engine turboprop. The PC-12 is an impressive aircraft with a unique combination of cabin size, range, runway performance and a cargo door. Skytech, the oldest Pilatus PC-12 dealer in the world, is an expert on the aircraft making this a natural progression. Additional models are anticipated to be added in the near future, culminating late next year with the large and fast Pilatus PC-24 multi-engine jet.
"Skytech is proud to announce that as of March 10, 2016 we have been awarded FAA Air Operating Certificate #4S1A996N. In addition to the many – and detailed – FAA hoops that an Air Taxi applicant will jump through, almost any Charter operation that you will encounter will spend a great deal of time trying to source airplanes to operate, manage their fuel supply and cost, acquire hangars, hire pilots, find and vet a maintenance provider, and buy insurance at an appropriate level. Over the past 40 years Skytech has, for reasons unrelated to the Part 135 business, fully developed each of these components independently. Because we operated and managed all manner of aircraft from single-engine pistons to multi-engine jets, the reassembly of those parts to develop a Charter component was a unique and efficient way to enter the business. The only question was when, and the answer is now." John Foster – President, Skytech, Inc.
Celebrating 40 years of business in 2016, Skytech has Full-Service FBO locations in Westminster, Maryland (Baltimore/Washington metro area) and Rock Hill, South Carolina (Charlotte metro area). Skytech is an authorized dealer and service center for the Pilatus PC-12 NG, Pilatus PC-24 Super Versatile Jet and the entire Piper product line including the new M600.
