Haven Aero spawned from the aspirations of a team that wanted a world class quality aircraft operator accessible to the people they cared about. From that desire for quality, safety, and the highest tier customer service the Haven Aero team began piecing together the required expertise, technology, aircraft, and processes to do so while maintaining a familial comradery among its employees and clients. Based on these core values, the name Haven was chosen. When our clients use Haven’s services, they feel that they are in safe harbor.
