Atlanta Air Charter, Inc. Wins Contract with Georgia Aviation Authority
August 4th, 2017 - by Atlanta Air Charter, Inc. | Share on:
After answering a Request for Proposal (RFP) and submitting numerous records to the Georgia Department of Administrative Services, Atlanta Air Charter was awarded the multi-year contract for the State's Aviation Authority.
The State of Georgia once had 4 separate aviation divisions until Governor Purdue signed a law which closed down all fixed wing operations, saving the state millions of dollars by contracting aviation services to air carriers such as Atlanta Air Charter. During the vetting process, the GA DOAS revealed that a major emphasis was put on the fact that Atlanta Air Charter's owners were former military and airline pilots, and every pilot in the company has thousands of hours of flight experience.
In the first month of the contract, Atlanta Air Charter flew trips in support of the Georgia Aviation Authority for the advancement of economic development. This lead agency is the state's sales and marketing arm, for attracting new business investment, encouraging the expansion of existing industry and small businesses, aligning workforce education and training with in-demand jobs, locating new markets for the State of Georgia.
"Atlanta Air Charter is proud of its healthy relationship with the state" says Jim Cook, the company's Director of Operations and former Navy P3 Squadron Commander. "Since Chip inked a 3 year contract with Kennesaw State University, we have also flown numerous missions for the University of Georgia, so our support for state activities has virtually doubled in just the past couple of years!"
Besides being a GSA contract holder, Atlanta Air Charter is a preferred vendor for Delta Air Lines, Southwest, UPS, and AirMed. The aviation business is a 24 hour per day operation and Atlanta Air Charter answers the phone 24/7, 365 days per year. "There is no holiday here at our company because somebody is always calling."
