Youngstown Airways Pilot Hat Badge

Youngstown, OH 1941 - Current

In 1941 Forrest Beckett opened Youngstown Airways at the brand-new Youngstown Municipal Airport. Beckett was a pioneer in aviation services and aircraft management, and one of the first to open an FBO. In 1955 the name changed to Beckett Aviation and in 1977-78 it was sold to CSX, it was then sold to Aero Services International in 1985. In 1995 Winner Aviation Services acquired Aero Services, and is still in operation. The term the "World's Largest Executive Fleet" was based on their being the largest Beechcraft dealer in the world in the mid 1950's.
