Welcome to Springfield Aircraft Charter & Sales (dba Springfield Air), an international air charter operator and aviation services provider conveniently located among the midwest's major commercial centers. Based at Kansas City's Wheeler Downtown Airport, Springfield Aircraft Charter and Sales has proudly served regional clients for more than seventeen years.
Beginning in 2010, the Company began a major upgrade program to expand its international operations and add jet aircraft to the charter fleet. Therein, Springfield Air executives forged new partnerships with U.S. and Asian clients and conducted several infrastructure review missions in the Southeast Asian region to support deployed operations. The Company also launched its jet program, sending its first Citation Captains to Flight Safety International training in November, 2010.
The upgrade program also delivered significant enhancements to the company's consulting and services offerings. For the first time in its history, Springfield Air fielded a cadre of seasoned special missions and airline consulting experts, capable of supporting unique client requirements in developing countries.
Springfield Air formally launched international jet service using the Cessna Citation X in August, 2011.
Shortly thereafter, the Company introduced the Gulfstream V ultra-long range jet to its international portfolio, with operations in North and South America, Europe, Asia, and the Middle East.
In 2014, Springfield Air commenced preparations for a truly industry-leading program, Polar-ETOPS Operations for Part 135 Corporate Aircraft. The Company is moving forwad with the certification process and is on track to be the first U.S. 135 Air Carrier to achieve such certification, pending regulatory approvals and demonstration flights.
