Experts – Part 121, 135 and 138
Air Operations – Aircraft Management

Owenair is one of the oldest Air Operators in the world, having been established in 1946. It was a key role player in the private aircraft charter business during the 50’s up until the late 80’s. 

When the business was purchased, only 2 aircraft were operating on a Part 121 Air Operator Licence, a Challenger 300 and a Learjet 45. Since 2009, United Charter Services has nurtured Owenair to its current position as one of only a handful of Air Operators who are authorised to operate both Part 135 and Part 121 commercial aircraft operations in South Africa. This means that we are authorised to operate aircraft ranging from smaller piston aircraft, turbine aircraft, jet aircraft and commercial airline type aircraft. Our current Part 121 and 135 Air Operators Certificates incorporate over 20 individual aircraft on our licences. 

A recently performed annual audit of Owenair by the South African Civil Aviation Authority resulted in Owenair being commended as a benchmark operator, for its systems and processes regarding Operations, Quality Management and Safety Management Systems. In addition, Owenair is SGS Aviation approved as an aviation service provider and are audited bi-annually by SGS HART Aviation. Owenair has built its reputation not only on its safe operation of aircraft, but also its turnkey aircraft management solutions.
