Charter About Us

About Us

Part of the Wheels Up family, Air Partner is a global aviation services group bringing nearly 60 years of experience in aircraft charter and industry-leading aviation safety & security solutions to our vast international client base. Our teams consistently put our customers first to deliver the extraordinary.

Our history

Founded back in 1961, we have an established heritage in aviation. We began as a school for military pilots converting to civilian flying using flight simulators and a fleet of Beagles, trading under the name Airways Training. Over the past 60 years we have evolved and developed into the global aviation services group we are today. 

Acquired by Wheels Up in April 2022, Air Partner continues to operate with the same values and customer-first principles that have set us apart for over 6 decades.

The Air Partner Services Division is the result of​ our acquisitions of Baines Simmons, Redline Assured Security & Kenyon International. We have united these organisations to empower our clients in resolving operational, compliance and regulatory performance challenges. This is achieved through the provision of Training, Consulting and Managed Services that support aviation, transport sectors, critical national infrastructure, armed forces, governments and regulators in addressing risk and vulnerabilities throughout their organisations.
