The KaiserAir Story
A Culture of Historical Excellence
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.
Henry Kaiser was a perfectionist, who instilled standards of excellence that are still deeply infused in our corporate culture today.
“Thinking Big” was one thing Henry was known for, which was a concept that even applied to the flight department. This led to his big idea for the HK 1 Hercules. The HK1 was intended to ferry large numbers of combat troops in World War II.
It later became known as the Spruce Goose (the H was for Hughes and the K was for Kaiser).
Thinking Big is still part of our culture since we have started the first airline to be based at Oakland International Airport in over 75 years - something very big for you our clients and very unique indeed.
And that tradition lives on: after 75 years in the aviation business, we have maintained a perfect safety record. We pay equal attention to the highest level of safety and security, while at the same time providing the kind of personal service that makes your visit such a pleasant experience to fly with KaiserAir.
