Mountain Aviation acquired by private investors


Mountain Aviation based at Rocky Mountain Metropolitan Airport in Colorado has been acquired by a private investment group – yet to be disclosed – who are seeking to develop the company in the turboprop and jet charter market.

Rich Bjelkevig, president of Mountain Aviation, said: “For more than 20 years, Mountain Aviation has provided unrivaled safety, service and value to discerning clients seeking aircraft charter, management, maintenance, sales and acquisition services.”

“I am very pleased that our company’s new ownership team is focused on providing unsurpassed value to our core Rocky Mountain client group. I am also delighted to continue serving as President, and I look forward to working closely with our new ownership group,” added Bjelkevig.

Cam Kenyon, previously the executive vice president of operations at WestJet Airlines in Calgary and the president of Lynx Aviation in Denver, has been appointed as the company’s executive director.

Kenyon said: “It is an honour to become associated with Mountain Aviation and the outstanding aviation company that Rich and his team of professionals have built over the last 21 years.”

The company will continue to focus primarily on its existing Rocky Mountain Region aviation clients, and will also seek to provide additional aviation services to the oil and gas industry and government services markets.

Mountain Aviation operates a fleet of Gulfstream, Bombardier/Lear Jet, Hawker, King Air, Piaggio, Pilatus, Citation Jet and turbo-prop aircraft all available for charter.
