Sky Aviation becomes first CH-46E Sea Knight civilian owner/operator

Sky Aviation is officially the first Civilian owner and operator of a CH-46E Sea Knight. Our long road began in March of 2014 when we bought four airframes from the GSA auction. With many hurdles in our path and much help we finally received our completed Type Certificate in July of 2015 and have an approved training program and maintenance program. This helicopter is ready and eager to enter the medium to heavy lift sector. Modifications include bubble windows for both pilots, cock pit controlled hook and Bambi bucket controls, load cell and more. She is fully outfitted and carded with the Forest Service and ready to help on fires.
