Vision Air Center Company Overview
For the Wrights, Hughes, Earharts and Lindberghs, flight was the ultimate in adventure and independence. At FLYBY AIR, we like to think the spirit that fueled their passion lives on. That’s why since 1967, we have provided businesses, families and those who love independence, the freedom of on-demand travel 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. The FLYBY AIR story began in the mid-sixties when Ron Ludema, learned to fly. He received his license to fly in 1965 and continued to earn all of his ratings. In 1967 Ron combined his passion for flying with a vision to own his own business and what would become FLYBY AIR was born. The first airplane was a single engine Bonanza, which was chartered for many hours while crisscrossing the United States and Canada. At that time, two full-time and two part-time employees constituted the entire company staff. It has always been our commitment to continuously update our fleet and facility to meet the needs and safety concerns of our customers. In 1998, we added our first jet, the Falcon 10, whose speed doubles that of a turboprop aircraft. 2004 marked another turning point when we added the luxurious Gulfstream G200 and international jet service.
