Priester Aviation and Mayo Aviation have joined together to form a premier private aircraft management, charter and maintenance provider with more than 120 years of shared experience in surpassing client expectations and providing the highest level of safety.
Based in Chicagoland and offering coast-to-coast service and international reach, Priester Aviation has been in operation for over 75 years. Every Priester Aviation aircraft is maintained and operated as if it were part of an exclusive flight department, with experienced, safety-certified flight crew at the ready. Our charter fleet includes small, midsize and heavy business jets, ensuring that the right aircraft is available for your mission. Our customers enjoy a truly personalized experience, backed by the resources of a large organization. Through interactions with crew, schedulers or managers, Priester Aviation provides expert solutions that enhance your private travel experience.

Founded in 1978 and based in Colorado, Mayo Aviation provides tailored national aircraft management services specializing in the Rocky Mountain West and throughout the South/Central US. Mayo Aviation enjoys a long-standing relationship with Flight for Life Colorado, the nation’s first fixed wing air ambulance service and one of the most accomplished critical care transport programs in the country, serving critical patients in the Rocky Mountain West for more than 41 years. In further recognition of its commitment to operational safety, Mayo Aviation is also one of only dozens of operators and airlines in the world to be approved for the Aspen/Pitkin County Airport (ASE) special approach. This allows you to finish your day on the east coast and still make it to Aspen before curfew flying on Mayo Aviation operated aircraft.
Together, we are one of the largest and most experienced family-operated aircraft management and charter solutions providers in the industry, delivering customer-focused, boutique-level support, across the country and around the world.

to manage your aircraft and charter needs.
In addition to being family-owned companies with decades of aircraft management and charter expertise, perhaps the strongest bond between Mayo Aviation and Priester Aviation comes down to a single word: safety.
Priester Aviation and Mayo Aviation have also implemented an extensive safety management system (SMS) that provides a framework by which to ensure compliance with all operational safety procedures. The companies have further led the way in safety by developing a flight operations quality assurance (FOQA) program that grants the FAA 24/7 real-time access to its operational and maintenance data and safety ticketing system, allowing continuous oversight.
The Priester Aviation family of companies offers nationwide resources, capacity and industry relationships that enhance your flight operations, reduce costs and offer unmatched support. Get the most out of your aircraft or travel options and enjoy the benefits of being part of our family.
