Spirit Aviation 1980sIn February 1983, their new company, Spirit Aviation, flew its first charter.  Spirit started with one plane and one pilot.  At that time Spirit operated from a small office and hangar  at Van Nuys Airport - off of Woodley Avenue.  

Before too long they had acquired several more King Air turboprops and had hired a team of talented young pilots.  By the end of the 1980's they had gained the reputation of being the "go to" guys for turboprop charter.
