Company marks anniversary by helping reforest region affected by wildfires
TORONTO October 20, 2021 /Press Release/
This year marks the 35th anniversary for Skyservice™ Business Aviation, Canada’s leading business aviation services provider to private jet owners, travel enthusiasts and commercial clients. Launched in 1986 in Montréal offering regional fixed base operations (FBO), Skyservice has grown into a world-class, full-service aviation company trusted by its clients and recognized in the industry for its safety, service excellence and seamless offering of travel services and aircraft ownership.
“Skyservice has achieved this milestone through the hard work and dedication of our people and our culture of customer service that exists throughout the entire organization,” said Benjamin Murray, President and Chief Executive Officer. “This milestone is more than a number. It reflects our commitment to personalized, high quality service to our clients and the deep relationships we have fostered on trust in the industry. Skyservice is poised for continuing growth and is excited to continue to innovate and invest in our people, our communities and in our industry.”
To celebrate this milestone, and in support of the regions impacted by wildfires in Canada, Skyservice has made a donation to One Tree Planted to help reforest lost habitat in British Columbia and invited 35 of its employees from across the organization to plant trees in the community on October 6th.
Mr. Murray added, “We asked our employees how best to celebrate our milestone. With our focus on responsible operations and sustainability, the choice was simple. We are proud to donate over 200 trees for each year since our inception and to contribute to reforestation in British Columbia, which suffered significant loss as a result of wildfires this past summer. We hope our efforts will replant over five hectares of land and rebuild lost habitat in the area.”

It meets stringent international requirements, particularly the latest versions of the AFQRJOS, the British DEF STAN 91-091 standard, the ASTM D1655 standard and the NATO F-35 specification. It has a minimum flashpoint of 38°C and a maximum freezing point of -47°C. JET A-1 is the principal fuel used for jet turbine engines.
