About Wisconsin Aviation:
The year was 1981, interest rates were at 21%, the country facing one of the worst recessions ever. Jeff Baum, along with a partner, started Wisconsin Aviation at the Watertown Municipal Airport (KRYV), Watertown, Wisconsin. Two years later, in 1983, Wisconsin Aviation was well established and growing, it began to operate a second FBO at the Dodge County Airport in Juneau, Wisconsin. On January 1, 1994 Madison’s Four Lakes Aviation was purchased by Wisconsin Aviation along with Coldstream Aviation (South Ramp) in 1995. In 1998, we added avionics, at Madison and interior repair and installation at the Watertown location.
In December 2002, Wisconsin Aviation dedicated its new $2.5 million, state of the art general aviation terminal on the east side of the Dane County Regional Airport in Madison. (Photo). In 2008 Wisconsin Aviation’s growth continued with the completion of the new avionics hangar in its Technical Services Complex.

It is now capable of providing a complete line of aviation-oriented services to include: private aircraft charter, corporate aircraft management, aircraft maintenance, avionics, aircraft rental, aircraft sales and flight instruction for Private Pilot through Airline Transport Ratings.
Additionally, aircraft hangar rental and fueling services are available for aircraft at all three locations.
