“Skyline was able to get me to my meeting in Northern Vermont on time with no advance notice! I was back in my office in Central Massachusetts that afternoon — 2 hours ahead of my anticipated return. This allowed me to attend another meeting that I would've normally missed. The time savings alone was well worth the trip. With their new aircraft, it was a very comfortable, professional, and pleasurable flight.”
— Jon L. Heslin
“A recent trip involved picking up three people, all at different locations. The three travelers were picked up in NH, MA and CT, dropped off for a meeting in NYC, and then returned to their original locations. Skyline got us where we needed to be on time and without a hitch. They keep abreast of current weather conditions and stay in touch with their passengers to keep them up to date on any changes that might be necessary. The pilots are very personable and professional and have continually provided a comfortable flying experience.”

Ken Brown - Director of Operations, Pilot
BS Business/Engineering, Antioch College MS Computer Science, Shippensburg University
Ken learned to fly in 1996 in Cessna 152s and 172s. In 1997 he bought a Cessna 172 for business and personal travel. When Cirrus announced their new SR20, Ken ordered one and waited two years for delivery. In 2003 he moved up to an SR22 and has been hooked ever since.
Hobbies: “I love to travel.”
Ken’s philosophy on flying:“Airplanes have it all – they are sophisticated machines that must be thoroughly ‘understood’. Operating them safely requires discipline and unemotional decision-making, and I love that challenge. Mastery of the machine rewards the pilot with a beautiful view of the natural and manmade landscape, the physical challenge of 3-D flight and quick transportation to unusual destinations.”
