Aviation North has been in the air charter and sightseeing tour business for more than 30 years; operating in Northern Michigan’s diverse weather conditions safely and on-time. Our fleet offers multiple sized aircraft to best fit your travel needs and budget. Charter aircraft are not limited to major airline hub airports so we can land much closer to your final destination, saving you time and money.

Aviation North can arrange hotel and ground transportation at your destination.

We can pick up or land anywhere in the lower 48 states and Canada. Aviation North offers very competitive hourly rates. So much so, that we often start trips well away from our home base.

Charter flights are a great way to treat your customers, provide incentives to your sales team and spoil your key personnel and their families. No long security lines, no more getting to the airport 2 hours early, turn every flight into a private business meeting. We also do day-trips to many popular Michigan destinations, such as: Traverse City, Mackinac Island, Drummond Island, Beaver Island, casino trips, sporting events, amusement parks, concerts and family activities. And don't forget Autumn color tours, lighthouse tours, or get some aerial photos of your hunting camp or lake house!
