World Class Amenities, Hometown Feel

For over 35 years, Lyon Aviation has called the Berkshires of Western Massachusetts home for its Fixed-Base Operations. Located less than 20 minutes by air from New York City and Boston, Lyon Aviation is ideal for quick repositioning of aircraft to meet your on-demand charter needs. Lyon Aviation’s private terminal features 24/7 availability and is located close to world-famous, year-round cultural amenities.

Lyon Aviation is one of the top-5 largest private jet charter operators in the NorthEast. As one of the earliest charter certificates in the country, we own the majority of the aircraft in our fleet while also operating a selection of managed jets.

Launched in 1980 by Lynn Lyon and his wife Shirley, Lyon Aviation is now a second-generation family-owned and operated company located at the Pittsfield Municipal Airport in Berkshire County, Massachusetts. Lyon Aviation began as a Fixed-Base Operator (FBO) providing fuel, maintenance, hangar services, charter and flight instruction. The early fleet consisted of a Cessna 172 and a Cessna 310. Employees were, in large part, family.

Today, Lyon Aviation is one of the Northeast’s most established jet operators. Lyon Aviation can accommodate a quick shuttle to Nantucket, a one-way trip to Florida, a last-minute ski trip to Aspen or longer excursions to Europe and Asia.

With more than 100 years of combined experience, Lyon Aviation’s professionals seek to achieve 100% customer satisfaction by providing the safest, most reliable air transportation services at a competitive price. We pride ourselves on being accessible and accountable, with customers able to directly contact the owners if necessary.
