May 4, 2017 (Oxford, Connecticut) – Tradewind Aviation, the premium operator of both scheduled shuttle and on-demand flights throughout the U.S. and Caribbean, continues to grow with a new hub at Hanscom Field (BED) in Bedford, Massachusetts and the addition of three new Pilatus PC-12 aircraft to its thoroughly modern fleet. The new developments are just the latest indicators of growth for the independent boutique airline, which is celebrating its 15th anniversary this year. In 2016, for instance, Tradewind Aviation was welcomed into the world’s leading luxury travel network, Virtuoso, and opened new routes from its base at Westchester County Airport in New York to Stowe, Vermont, and Boston, Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard in Massachusetts.

High-Flying Fleet
With the acquisition of the new Pilatus PC-12s, Tradewind Aviation now operates 21 aircraft for shuttle and private charter service throughout the Northeast and Caribbean, including 18 Pilatus PC-12 turboprops and 3 Citation CJ3 light business jets. The total includes the second largest civilian Pilatus fleet in North America. With eight seats and a pressurized cabin, PC-12s are perfect for short-to-medium-range flights to hard-to-reach destinations. The PC-12’s are notable for their ability to land at smaller airports, placing passengers in closer proximity to their destinations. Particularly well-suited for charter flights to popular summer destinations including East Hampton, Montauk, Upstate New York, Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine, the new aircraft will be
put to work satisfying demand during Tradewind Aviation’s busy summer season in the Northeast, as well as for new year-round business shuttle service from Westchester County Airport to Boston. With six club seats in a roomy pressurized cabin and a range of up to 2,040 miles, Citation CJ3s are ideal for medium- to longer-range 􀀲lights, enabling access to destinations such as Florida, the Midwest, Canada, The Bahamas, Turks and Caicos, and points throughout the Eastern Caribbean.

Convenience for Summer Hops
One of Tradewind Aviation’s new PC-12s is based at the new hub at Hanscom Field, an airport operated by the Massachusetts Port Authority located 30 minutes by car from Boston. The setting is convenient for charter flights to popular summer destinations including Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard, as well as points throughout Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, and beyond. As with all Tradewind Aviation flights, passengers boarding at Hanscom Field can expect the luxury and ease of a private charter, with no TSA security checkpoints at the airport, private gate entrance, exclusive FBO lounges, complimentary on-board snacks and drinks. “It is fair to say that Tradewind Aviation is flying higher than ever right now, with new aircraft to assure that our passengers get where they’re going in comfort, convenience and style. As we mark our 15th year, we are proof positive and popular of the many benefits offered by ‘alternative aviation’,” said David Zipkin, Vice President of Tradewind Aviation.
