Executive AirShare Expands to OKC Market

Kansas City, Mo.-based regional fractional aircraft ownership company Executive AirShare adds a sixth market — Oklahoma City — to its service base in the central U.S.
The company will base a Beechcraft King Air C90B at Atlantic Aviation at Wiley Post Airport in Bethany, to serve the growing number of businesses seeking the advantages of business aircraft in the Oklahoma City area.
“The demand for fractional aircraft ownership continues in the central U.S. and we look forward to introducing a higher level of service to business aviators in this area.” said Robert Taylor, executive AirShare chairman and chief executive.
Executive AirShare also serves shareowners in Tulsa, Dallas and Fort Worth, Wichita and Kansas City.
In the past 24 months, the company has more than doubled the number of pilots and now has more than 80 shareowners, said Keith D. Plumb, Executive AirShare president and chief operating officer.
“Our expansion into Oklahoma City clearly demonstrates that our regional fractional ownership program, in which owners fly in their own aircraft with pilots they know a majority of the time, is a model that most closely replicates the experience of full ownership,” he said.
Executive AirShare operates a fleet of 15 aircraft, five Beechjet 400As, five Super King Air 350s and five King Air C90Bs, and currently holds orders for 44 Embraer Phenom 100 and six Phenom 300 jet aircraft, with deliveries beginning in Spring 2009. Executive AirShare is the only established fractional aircraft ownership company to offer shares in both the Phenom 100 and Phenom 300.
Executive AirShare recently expanded its service capabilities to include whole aircraft management by acquiring Fort Worth-based Executive Flight Services Inc., formerly known as Flight Services Co., which manages eight jet and turboprop aircraft and maintains office, hangar and maintenance facilities, as well as a full-time staff of pilots, at Fort Worth Meacham Airport.
