Rectrix water cannon salute at Worcester Regional Airport

Rectrix Commercial Aviation Services has completed its 20,000th charter flight at Worcester Regional Airport.

Rectrix uses Worcester Regional Airport as a maintenance base-of-operations for its aircraft fleet. To celebrate the milestone, a Rectrix charter jet was given a water cannon salute as it taxied to the company’s Aerodrome terminal.

Rectrix charter division began in 2010 and has reached its 20,000th flight in seven years. The company’s charter division owns a fleet of Lear 45, Challenger 604 and Challenger 300 that can fly passengers to domestic and international destinations.

In 2015, Rectrix opened a new Aerodrome facility at Worcester Regional Airport to service all small and large general aviation and corporate aircraft utilising the airport. In 2016, Rectrix expanded its aviation offerings with the launch of a commercial passenger shuttle serving Cape Cod.

“The entire Rectrix team is so pleased to achieve this milestone and mark the moment here in Worcester.”

“The entire Rectrix team is so pleased to achieve this milestone and mark the moment here in Worcester.” said Richard Cawley, CEO, Rectrix. “Our Aerodrome facility has been a source of tremendous growth for us since it opened in late 2015—and designating this airport as our maintenance base-of-operations this past year was indicative of that success. We are committed to being a partner to Massport and Worcester and look forward to seeing continued success at Worcester in the coming years as the airport’s new CAT III instrument landing system comes into operation.”

“I am thrilled to be here with Rectrix to mark this important moment in their company history—it is a proud moment for both Rectrix and the City of Worcester. Worcester Regional Airport is a vital stimulus for the Central Massachusetts economy and we value Rectrix’s commitment to fostering business and job growth in Worcester.” added Congressman Jim McGovern.
