Over forty years of history in the aviation business, our company got its start in Kinston, NC in 1969 with two employees and only one airplane. From here, we expanded to Wilmington in 1990, and later to Concord, NC. During this period, there were twenty-seven aircraft, and airline flights ran from Kinston to Raleigh. Presently, AERO Services is a Part 61 aviation school as well as one of the few fixed based operators in the area, offering aircraft services for everything from light sport aircraft to large jets.
