Waltzing Matilda Aviation (WMA) has acquired a majority ownership and management responsibility for Exec Air Montana- an aircraft charter and management (ACM) business at Helena Regional Airport in Montana, US, operating a fleet of six aircraft.
The acquisition accompanies the sale of Exec Air Montana’s full-service business aviation activities to Leading Edge Jet Center, a provider of business aviation and jet fuelling services throughout the Pacific Northwest and Mountain West regions, including FBOs, a part 145 aircraft repair station and Montana Medical Transport.
This acquisition positions WMA with a great platform for growth. Our partnership with Leading Edge Jet Center provides an opportunity to expand WMA’s presence in both the Pacific Northwest and Mountain West regions, strengthening our resilient value offering for customers. We are proud to bring WMA’s charter services, which grew over 80% above 2019 levels in 2020, to a new customer base at the Helena Regional Airport.
John Thomas, CEO of WMA.
