UltraAir to retain Omaha fleet under FCA ownership
Over time, UltraAir will be operationally folded into Four Corners Aviation, which has seen increased interest in its jet card solutions, aircraft management and innovative Freedom programme.
Signing the agreement are ASL Private Jet Services CEO Philippe Bodson and ASL Airlines Belgium CEO Hugh Flynn.

Four Corners Aviation has acquired charter and aircraft management company UltraAir. Based in Omaha, Nebraska, UltraAir operates a diverse fleet of aircraft, offering personalised travel solutions for customers.

“As we continue to grow all segments of our business, this acquisition helps us scale up our operation,” says Four Corners Aviation CEO, Brian Proctor. “We have seen increased interest in all our product offerings, which include jet card solutions, aircraft management and our innovative Freedom programme.”

UltraAir was founded in 2002 with the commitment to provide professional and efficient air transportation tailored to customer needs. For 20 years, the company has served customers through aircraft charter and management, as well as aircraft sales, while always conducting operations at the highest possible standards. “This transaction will provide limitless opportunities for our employees and ensures that our customers will continue to receive 'A Flight Above the Rest' for many years to come,” states UltraAir CEO, Scott Robertson.

Over time, UltraAir will be operationally folded into Four Corners Aviation. A corporate presence, including a fleet of aircraft, will continue to be maintained in Omaha.

“As a company, UltraAir embodies the same values we do,” adds Proctor. “We understand that customers are looking for solutions, and that's what we deliver. Our growth strategy is focused on customer service and building a customised solution for each client we serve.”

The team at Four Corners Aviation is well-versed in operations, financial management, aircraft sales and acquisitions, and flight department management. This expertise, coupled with the leadership depth of Aquila Aviation Ventures and access to the capabilities of sister company Mente Group, allows Four Corners to effectively collaborate with companies and high net worth individuals to find the right solution to meet their individual needs.

Four Corners Aviation offers a comprehensive suite of solutions for private aviation users. The company's flagship product, known as Freedom, is its Corporate Jet as a Service (CJaaS) solution. Freedom enables business jet users to have the flexibility and all the other benefits of whole aircraft ownership without the administrative hassles, responsibilities and expense. The company also offers jet card solutions, including its unique Insight Card, and aircraft management.

Four Corners Aviation, headquartered in Frisco, Texas, was formed in October 2021 through a partnership between Mente Group and Aquila Aviation Ventures. Mente Group, a business aircraft brokerage and consultancy firm, and Four Corners Aviation are both holdings of Aquila Aviation Ventures.
