AviationPros.com: Keystone Aviation Private Jet Charter, Aircraft Management and Aircraft Maintenance Expands to SDL

Keystone Aviation announced 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, 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.

TAC Creates Hangar Management Business with Acquisition

by Jerry Siebenmark / May 18, 2021, 6:01 PM


TAC Private Hangars will manage 60,000 sq ft of hangar space and 5,000 sq ft of office space at Scottsdale Airport in Arizona following parent company The Arnold Companies' acquisition of the assets of Gemini Air Group. 

Following its May 1 acquisition of the assets of Gemini Air Group at Arizona's Scottsdale Airport (KSDL), Arizona, Dallas-based The Arnold Companies (TAC) has established a Keystone Aviation operation there. Additionally, it created TAC Private Hangars, which will manage more than 65,000 sq ft of upscale private hangar and office space at KSDL.

Keystone, which was acquired by TAC in 2012, will provide its full range of charter, aircraft management, and Part 145 repair station services at SDL that will serve as a second hub to Keystone’s primary hub at Salt Lake City International Airport. The Keystone charter fleet comprises 13 business aircraft and includes Pilatus PC-12 turboprop singles, an Embraer Phenom 100, and a Gulfstream G550. 

“Picking up a second hub in Scottsdale expands our regional footprint south from Salt Lake City in the desert to mountain corridors we fly regularly,” said Keystone COO Aaron Fish. “With the addition of Scottsdale, we can now offer a greater selection of aircraft to get customers where they want, when they want.”

Meanwhile, "the brand extension under TAC is a strategic opportunity for development as we continue to diversify our services and expand into new [business aviation] markets," said TAC Private Hangars COO Joe Gibney. In addition to providing customers with hangar space and tenant office space, TAC Private Hangars will offer dedicated handling services at KSDL.
