In Memoriam


Robert A. Thomas
In Memoriam
December 1, 1946 - February 16, 2015

Robert A. Thomas, who co-founded Aero Charter, Inc. in 1978, died unexpectedly on February 16, 2015. A Penn State University graduate, Bob served as a Marine Corps HMH-53 helicopter pilot during the Vietnam War. He was happily married to his wife Nancy, and they had three sons, Jeff, Tyler and Drew. Bob enjoyed golf, hunting, skeet and sporting clay shooting.

Bob’s larger-than-life personality will be greatly missed by his family, friends, coworkers and clients. Bob was a true Marine, and he always lived his life moving forward with vigor. We will remember how he lived his life with the highest ethics and will continue to keep Aero Charter the respected company he was instrumental in building.

Certified TBM Service Center

In 2012, Aero Charter technicians went through specialized training to become certified in the service of Daher planes. Since then, Aero Charter has been servicing and maintaining TBM planes from all across the Midwest. Turboprop aircraft manufacturer Daher manufactured the TBM 700, 850, and the recently released TBM 900 (pictured below). 

John Morgenthaler, Aero Charter President, says that "what this certification means to Aero Charter clients is an assurance that they will receive quality support for their TBMs at a centrally-located facility convenient to midwest-based aircraft." As the only Daher Service Center in Missouri, Aero Charter is proud to offer the high-quality maintenance that TBM owners have come to expect.

Cruise vs All-Inclusive

Cruise vacation or all-inclusive? There's no wrong answer to that question - we say it's all about personal preference. If relaxation and soaking up the sun while holding a fancy drink (without having to pull out your wallet) sounds ideal to you, then all-inclusive is a perfect choice. If you like to jam-pack several locations into one trip and immerse in many different cultures, then consider taking a cruise. Cruises are schedule-oriented with the benefit of mobility and activities to keep you entertained.

Inclusive resorts take the worry and guilt out of travel.  They allow you to pay one price to fully experience all the amenities of your destination. A cruise is for the traveler who loves being on the water, experiencing a different town every day, and live shows at night.
