|Oklahoma's Virtual Airline.||
Suffice to say there are no flights tonight. There are reported tornadoes on the ground, and damage has been reported. We will continue to monitor the situation and provide assistance as need be. Let's keep the people of Oklahoma in our thoughts tonight.
This afternoon we flew a couple of customers from Idabel - located in the southeast corner of the state - to Oklahoma City / Will Rogers World Airport. Our flight plan took us over McAlester, OK, then west over Holdenville and into the metro area. OKC is our focus city: though our charter aircraft base is south of OKC in Pauls Valley, most of our customer demand is the OKC and Tulsa markets. Oftentimes we are flying charter passengers from small, rural areas to the large commercial airports in those cities. Our charter service provides these customers with the critical "last leg" service to towns not served by airlines, thus reducing the need to drive two, three or four hours to one of the three commercial service airports in the state.
Today is a great day for flying...you can see the Oklahoma landscape for miles and miles.
