Gama Aviation with Wheels Up


Wheels Up is a revolutionary concept in private travel. In 2013, they appointed Gama Aviation to be their air carrier and build their operations from the ground up.

This includes all facets of flight operations, maintenance control, dispatch, logistics, accounting and flight following. To date, we operate 72 Beechcraft King Air 350is, 15 Cessna Citation Excel/XLS, and 5 Cessna Citation Xs.

Wheels Up is a membership-based private aviation company launched by Kenny Dichter in 2013. Within one year, Wheels Up had signed 1,000 members.

With its swiftly expanding fleet and clientele, Wheels Up immediately designated Gama Aviation to be the sole manager of their aircraft fleet.

Wheels Up members can charter private jets and helicopters at an hourly rate. Their members can also enjoy exclusive events and concierge services, courtesy of Wheels Down; the company’s affiliated lifestyle brand.
