WATERTOWN, WIS. – Wisconsin Aviation, Inc. is celebrating 36 years in business in 2017, and they started during difficult times. Interest rates were at 21 percent in 1981, and the country was facing one of the worst recessions ever. But two years later in 1983, Wisconsin Aviation was growing, it opened its second operation at Dodge County Airport in Juneau, Wisconsin, and on January 1, 1994, the company bought Four Lakes Aviation on the east ramp at Dane County Regional Airport in Madison, Wis., and Coldstream Aviation on the south ramp a year later. In 1998, Wisconsin Aviation added avionics at Madison, and interior repair and installation at Watertown. In December 2002, Wisconsin Aviation dedicated its new $2.5 million, state-of-the-art general aviation terminal in Madison, and in 2008, Wisconsin Aviation added a new avionics hangar in its technical services complex.
Today, Wisconsin Aviation is 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 training from Private Pilot through the Airline Transport Pilot Certificate. Aircraft hangar rental and fueling services are available at all three locations.
