The Springfield Flight Academy is doing well

If you’re involved with aviation and live somewhere in the Springfield, OH area you may have heard of Aaron Coleman.  The Chief Pilot and Vice President of the Springfield Flight Academy began teaching flight in 2004 and has owned the company along with his wife Marjorie since 2006.  They now offer a two-year professional pilots license program in conjunction with Clark State.

In 2008, they added a Piper Comanche to their Cessna Skyhawk 172, a significant investment that revealed the growth and success of the Academy.  At that time, they also added airplane maintenance on light single-engine, piston-powered, and turbo prop planes to the business mix.  Many of their customers are clients of the more than 60 aircraft at the Springfield-Beckley Municipal Airport, an airport with one of the six longest runways in the state of Ohio at over 8900’. 

A new service, a new company – Coleman Air

Now, Aaron and colleague Collis Wager are seeking to bring charter service to the Springfield airport as well.  After an analysis of the market, Coleman and Wagner believe that any company sending two or more people on short notice (within two to three weeks of the flight) are prime targets for becoming customers.  Using charter service to smaller airports in KY, GA, northern Florida and throughout the Midwest is also a time saver, given that often connecting flights are necessary, which take up significant amounts of additional time. 

Coleman and Wagner just recently submitted an application for the new company Coleman Air to the FAA for their 135 charter certificate and expect to be up and running within 6-8 months, with May 2010 as a target date.  They are also looking to purchase an additional cabin-class airport (6 seater) to use for this new business venture.  If you are interested in getting more information, please contact Aaron at the hanger at 937.325.5321 or by cell at 937.408.5796.
