Why Fly Air Key
Air Key West is a fully certified, licensed, bonded, and insured Federal Aviation Administration Part 135 (Commuter and On-Demand Charter) Air Carrier.
EXPERIENCED PILOTS- Many charter operations are merely a stepping stone for young, inexperienced pilots working to gain the experience needed to be hired by a major airline. Air Key West's pilots are not fresh out of flight training. All have many years of experience and are flying charter because they want to, not because they plan on moving on to the scheduled airline world at the first opportunity. All our pilots possess the Airline Transport Pilot's license (ATP), the highest-grade civilian license available, and are trained to and maintain FAA VFR (Visual Flight Rules) and IFR (Instrument Flight Rules), day and night currencies.
EXCEPTIONAL AIRCRAFT- Some charter operators fly tired old aircraft with outdated, complex and unreliable systems. Some fly single-engine airplanes, or airplanes not certified for instrument flying or night conditions. Air Key West only operates outstanding late model, twin-engine aircraft, exceptionally-equipped, and meticulously-maintained above and beyond the regulatory requirements and the manufacturer's guidelines.
OUTSTANDING SERVICE- Since our operation began in 2002, our dispatch reliability rate has been >99.8%. We believe safety is paramount, and do not accept anything less than utmost safety with our families, or yours. Neither our company, nor any of our pilots have had any FAA incidents, accidents, or violations of any kind.
OUTSTANDING VALUE- Our charter rates are extremely
competitive because we fly more efficient aircraft, maintain
them to the highest standards, and operate them with care.
The aircraft reward us with reliability and long service lives.
