Establishes new hub to its private jet charter fleet at KSDL as part of the Gemini Air Group acquisition
SCOTTSDALE, AZ (May 18, 2021) Keystone Aviation is thrilled to announce the expansion of aircraft management, private air charter and aircraft maintenance services at Scottsdale Airport (KSDL), establishing the market as a secondary hub in the western desert to mountain corridor for aircraft management, charter and maintenance.
A division of The Arnold Companies (TAC), Keystone Aviation will be based at the newly formed TAC Private Hangars facility at Scottsdale Airport, which at the same time acquired the assets of the 24-year-old Scottsdale aviation company, Gemini Air Group.
Sharing his excitement of the acquisition through TAC Private Hangars, TAC Chairman and CEO, Greg Arnold said, “The TAC family is proud to be adding a new airport hub to the Keystone Aviation network as we expand the TAC brand to include KSDL. We welcome the newest team members to our aviation family and look forward to sharing our passion for aviation with Scottsdale and the greater Phoenix area.”
On May 1, 2021, TAC picked up the former Gemini Air Group operations in Scottsdale and will continue to provide great service to tenants and charter customers who utilize Keystone Aviation from the same address on the west side of Scottsdale Airport.
Keystone Aviation is establishing a second hub for its fleet based in Scottsdale, AZ. Offering a large collection of on-demand charter aircraft from single engine PC 12’s to large cabin Gulfstream jets, the SDL base establishes an additional point of service to existing Keystone Aviation customers and pilots as we expand into the robust SDL charter and management market. Keystone Aviation is factory authorized for Twin Commander, Cirrus aircraft and Garmin, Airtext and Aspen Avionics. Keystone Aviation is a certified Part 145 maintenance repair station with authorizations for Cirrus SR 22 & SF50, Twin Commander, Hawker, Beechjet, King Air, Citation / Citation Jet and Cessna 441 / Caravan.
“Since Keystone Aviation was founded over 25 years ago, we have prided ourselves on the focus, training and attention to detail for all parts of the aircraft management, private jet charter and maintenance businesses,” stated Keystone Aviation Chief Operating Officer, Aaron Fish. “By establishing a second hub in Arizona our regional footprint connects the desert to mountain corridor with a fleet based at both ends to better serve the private flying customers living in the region. With the addition of the KSDL location, we now offer a greater selection of aircraft to get customers where they want, when they want.”
“As the number of customers traveling for leisure continues to rise and business travel returns over the next year, we look forward to the possibilities of being in Scottsdale and the surrounding Phoenix area,” said Fish.
