About Summit

Summit Aviation began humbly: one pilot, one aircraft, and one small hangar.

Two decades later Summit has multiplied into 18 flight school aircraft, one of the largest fleets of Embraer Phenom 300 and Praetor aircraft, a large managed fleet, and a staff of over 100 highly qualified individuals consisting of charter and corporate pilots, flight instructors, aircraft sales professionals, and other industry specialists. We've evolved into one of the nation's premier aviation service companies, taking the "complicated" out of all your aviation needs and guiding you smoothly through any turbulence.

Mission & Core Values
