Silverhawk Aviation began in 1991 as a charter operation in Seward, Neb., with one airplane and one pilot. Today Silverhawk Aviation is a full-service aviation company providing aircraft charter services, fractional ownership services, maintenance, avionics, and line services. Silverhawk Aviation has been a fixture in Lincoln for the last 20 years and continues to grow and invest in the Lincoln community.
On November 10th, Silverhawk Aviation broke ground on a new 28,375 square foot hangar and workspace that will house the Avionics Department as well as 10 light to mid-sized jets earmarked to service 50-100 businesses in Lincoln and the Midwest through a fractional ownership program. “We’re very excited to make private travel more accessible to local businesses and individuals by providing all of the advantages of aircraft ownership without any of the hassles,” said Mike Gerdes, President of Silverhawk Aviation. Silverhawk held a ribbon cutting with the Lincoln Chamber of Commerce to celebrate this groundbreaking.
Lincoln Chamber of Commerce and Lincoln Partnership for Economic Development President Wendy Birdsall said, “We are thrilled to see Silverhawk Aviation expanding here in Lincoln. Our city is successful because of innovative companies like Silverhawk.”
