Has anyone heard of Kaiser Air based out of OAK?

Any information would be appreciated.

Thank you!

Professional Pilot magazine has an interesting piece about the company, their 121 and 135 operation along with the FBO side. It's a solid company.

From what I've seen, it's the most popular FBO at OAK. I drive people there on a regular basis. They also either own or charter a 737 that does flights between OAK and KOA...more popularly known as the "Kona Shuttle".

Haha.. not THE Kaiser, this was Henry J Kaiser an Oakland Industrialist. He built 1000s of warships quickly during WWII, founded Kaiser Aluminum, built the Kaiser/Fraser automobiles after the war, started Kaiser Permanente still a large provider of Health Care. Oh, and along with Steven Bechtel, built Boulder Dam (Hoover Dam) south of Las Vegas, still one of the worlds largest.

"KaiserAir dates back to 1946 when it was established as the flight department of industrialist Henry J. Kaiser’s family of companies. With global operations in ship building and construction, the Kaiser companies relied heavily on a flight department that had extraordinary safety standards and was also able to perform complex missions at a moment’s notice."
