Aero Charter is here at NBAA’07 (Booth No. 5318) celebrating its 30th year of operation under a single owner. CEO Bob Thomas and his partner, John Morgenthaler, Jr., are both pilots. “I go by what the customer wants. We are straight-shooters. We show the customer how to do what they want to do,” Thomas said.

He said that highlights of the company’s 30 years have been getting the Part 135 certificate; their steady growth, from pistons to turboprops to jets; and building the company’s first hangar (Aero Charter is breaking ground on its second hangar early next year). Thomas also noted the company’s reliability, flawless safety record, quick response and the good people working for the company.

Operating a charter fleet that ranges from a Hawker Beechcraft Baron 58 to Hawker 800s and 700s, Aero Charter is based at Spirit of St. Louis Airport (SUS), St. Louis, Mo. In addition to building a new hangar, it is offering fuel sales, both avgas and jet-A.
