First Wing Charter and Management General Manager Andy Yergler was recently interviewed by Terri Stacy for a news story on the “First Day” morning show on WIBC.
Yergler discussed the growth First Wing has seen as a result of the global COVID-19 pandemic.
First Wing has experienced record growth between April and June at more than 75 percent. Total flying time in June 2020 was more than 40 percent higher than the total flying time of the fleet in June 2019.
“We have been operating private air charter out of Indianapolis for the past 25 years,” said General Manager Andy Yergler. “Over the years, we’ve seen the demand for private air travel increase, especially in recent months due to the global pandemic. More and more people want to fly privately in order to keep their family, friends and colleagues safe and healthy. Some of the benefits of private air travel is traveling with only people you know, operating with limited staff on board and avoiding busy airport terminals. In order to meet the growing local demand, we have expanded our charter fleet and pilot crew.”
