Executive Air Service

The Flight Operations Division is responsible for operating, maintaining, and scheduling state-owned aircraft to provide safe and secure transportation for all state agencies.

Our team coordinates flight service for use by state agencies to support emergency services, economic development prospects, and the Administration to conduct the Commonwealth’s business. Aircraft are normally available on a first-come, first-served basis, with preemptive priority of the Governor and Virginia Economic Development Partnership (VEDP).  We support access to communities served by most of the 66 public-use airports in Virginia, as well as most of the other 5,000 public-use airports in the United States.
