Brad Koury - President
Koury Aviation focuses on personal service for our customers; we are not interested in just putting a person in an aircraft and moving them. We strive to understand what makes the customer comfortable and feel safe on their trip, each trip is an education to what our customer’s needs are, whether they have kids or dogs. Our pilots are seasoned with thousands of hours, and a personality that cares that each passenger is provided for before they get on the aircraft, during the flight, and once they arrive at their destination.
