About

Sky-high Legacy and Service Excellence

Rooted in Tradition, Flying into the Future

Since 1940, we’ve pursued a single passion: aviation. The journey began with our founder, W.M. Boshears, affectionately known as “Buster,” who kickstarted our modest operations under the banner of Augusta School of Aviation. From these humble beginnings, we’ve soared to the position of being the Southeast’s oldest Fixed Base Operator. Retaining our early ambitions and ethos, we’ve broadened our horizons and expanded our offerings.

Today, our expert team at Augusta Aviation is dedicated to providing world-class charters, exhilarating aerial tours, comprehensive aircraft maintenance, and a myriad of line services. Our services are a dynamic blend of legacy, expertise, and versatility.

But that’s not the end of our tale. We’re constantly looking ahead, guided by our robust heritage but never restricted by it. Join us as we continue breaking barriers and reaching new heights in the realm of aviation.

It’s time to experience the very best of aviation, grounded in tradition, and elevated by modern innovation.
