The Story of Western Airways . . .Captain George A. Dodge started Western Airways in 1974 with a single-engine Piper and lofty ambitions. Western has since been traversing continents with thousands of satisfied customers. The company has provided Professional and Dependable Air Charter Flights and Aircraft Services to a long and distinguished list of National and International Companies… as well as private individuals, entrepreneurs and prominent politicians. The welcoming lounge, the gleaming aircraft, and the immaculate hangars immediately convey competence. For business travelers, every Western plane gives you an office in the sky where flight time becomes productive time. Planes are stocked with beverages, snacks and special catering upon request… as charters can provide in-flight attendants. For personal travel, you and your family will avoid the nightmarish scenario of commercial check-in, security lines and lost baggage. And for added convenience and time saving our International travelers appreciate the on-site, efficient Sugar Land Regional U.S. Customs Office. There is no comparison for convenience and time-saving offered in a casual and welcoming environment. There is nothing equal to the satisfaction of a professional crew exclusively committed to the safety and comfort of you and your loved ones.
Western Airways received added lift with entrepreneur Keith Mosing. The oil service industry executive climbed into the cockpit of business with his friend George to take the company to an even higher business level with his flying experience, business acumen, and love of airplanes. Today, the Western fleet is expansive and operated with an unblemished safety record. Aircraft include Lear Jets, various Citation models, Challengers, the 30-passenger CRJ200LR airliner, Super King Air B200’s, and more. Western’s high standards, its state-of-art computerized Safety Management System (SMS), and its safety record have earned it the honor to be one of the few charter companies in Texas authorized to fly large publicly-traded companies. Its pilots, technicians, and line personnel not only receive constant in-house training, but Western has a contract with the independent Flight Safety International for the latest flight simulator and ground school training and testing on a recurring basis. Safety is buoyed with the most sophisticated on-site weather and flight tracking available. Aircraft maintenance is always a priority. All Western aircraft are maintained at the highest standards for your safety and security.
