Sky King, Inc.was founded in July of 1990, concurrent with the purchase of a BAC 1-11 aircraft. In May 1991, Sky King obtained a Part 125 operating certificate. In the past six years, SkyKing contracted with entertainment groups, major corporate executives, and sports entities.
In late 1998 Sky King acquired its first 737-200 aircraft, which was put into service in February 1999, transporting NBA basketball teams and NHL hockey teams. A second 737-200 was acquired in November 1999, bringing the total aircraft fleet to three. The BAC 1-11 aircraft was sold in September 2000, with the objective of replacing it with a third 737 aircraft.
Continued demand for services led Sky King to acquire three additional 737-200 aircraft in 2001. By the fall of 2001, Sky King was transporting 10 sports teams on long-term contracts, with demand from other entities continuing to be high.
In October of 2002, Sky King obtained a Part 121 operating certificate. Since that time, Sky King has continued to develop and expand its business foundation. Particularly noteworthy is the addition in 2004 of scheduled service out of several east coast airports, with routes to Mexico, the Caribbean, Guam, and other east coast cities. Currently with a fleet of 737-200 aircraft, Sky King is looking forward to meeting the diverse requirements of the airline industry.
