Windy City Charter changes name to Ventis Aviation


Windy City Charter has changed its name to Ventis Aviation and has added a Beechcraft King Air 350 to its fleet.

Windy City Charter announced that it has changed its name to Ventis
Aviation and has added a King Air 350 to its charter fleet.  The company’s home
offices, leadership and air carrier certificate remain unchanged.  The new
name took effect earlier this year and has already become the operating arm for
both the aircraft charter and management services.

Dean Ellis, president, said
the new name “is a logical result of our growth and nationwide presence. 
With bases of operations opening in locations across the country, we needed to
select a title that better suits our evolving identity.  The word ‘Ventis’
has Latin roots and remains true to our original name and the company’s 18-year
history, which was very important to us.  We are thrilled with the
feedback we’ve received from the new name, logo and website.”

The King Air 350 has been
added to its charter fleet at Chicago Executive Airport
at Wheeling, IL. The aircraft has 9 seats and will be a
great addition to the Chicagoland area charter market.  The King Air 350
is the ideal aircraft for regional charter flights to Wisconsin
and Michigan, but can also comfortably carry passengers to New York, Colorado and even Florida

The King Air compliments
Ventis’ growing fleet, which also includes a Hawker 700 based in Grand Junction, Colorado;
and a Beech Baron based at Chicago
Executive Airport. 
All three aircraft are available for charter.
