About Courtney Aviation

COMPANY HISTORY
Started in 1967, as a flight school and charter flying service by Jack Courtney, our company's tradition of dependable General Aviation services throughout the Western United States continues. Under the present ownership since 1984, we have expanded on a tradition offering thousands of clients, a wide range of aviation services. From custom pilot flight training programs, to honey moon escapes, to fire detection and suppression missions with the government forestry services, we always strive to live up to our motto: "Big Enough to Deliver, Small Enough to Care."

OUR PILOTS
Our multi thousand hour pilots have been selected both for; their mature decision making and judgement abilities, and their seasoned piloting skills. They maintain their certification with frequent recurrent training by our company, and through regular flight tests with Federal Aviation Administration inspectors. Each of our pilots have several thousand flying hours in mountainous terrain making them well qualified for flying in the Western USA.

OUR AIRCRAFT
We have chosen the aircraft we fly for 3 reasons; they are well suited to the mountains because of their performance margins, they have very good safety records, and they have high wings which provide an unobstructed view of the scenery below. We are pleased to currently provide: a Cessna 182 Skylane which accommodates 3 passengers and their luggage, and a Cessna Turbo 337 Skymaster, seating 5 passengers and equipped with a STOL (short takeoff and landing) system enabling operations out of short unimproved airports when needed. Our twin engine 4-7 passenger aircraft are equipped with cabin heaters for those chilly days and individual air vents to let you breath in the fresh mountain air. We also have an on board music system with headsets and a voice activated intercom allowing easy communications between passengers.
