Aircraft Charter & Management
Hawthorne Eau Claire's charter department, Heartland Aviation, has been in the business since 1961. We understand the importance of getting to know and trust the air charter company you fly with. We want to be the company you truly know and trust. Our crews are some of the best pilots in the business. Every crewmember is trained as a captain. Over the years we've found there really is no replacement for a well trained professional pilot. We expect each of our pilots to strive to be the best at what they do. Eau Claire's turnkey aircraft management program handles all of the day-to-day transactions, maintenance and operations for owners, including:

Training is scheduled at YOUR pace. As with any learning process, the more often you can train the less you have to "re-learn" as you go along. An ideal schedule would have you taking a lesson at least once per week, preferably twice. About six months is a reasonable time to complete the process.
Financing is available through 3rd parties such as pilotfinance.com.
