Skyservice CEO and founder Russ Payson developed a concept in a school paper he penned many years ago and has translated his vision into a benchmark for the business aviation industry focused on service excellence.

In the fall of 1994 Skyservice Airlines became the realization of another of Russell Payson's personal dreams. Operating a pair of A320s leased, the new carrier flew to southern destinations on behalf of Sunquest Vacations. The airline division became one of the largest charter airlines in the country, operating 23 Airbus and Boeing aircraft. The Skyservice Airlines business model earned Payson a reputation in the industry for business success and has garnered him the respect of peers and competitors. In August of 2007, Skyservice announced the sale of the airline to Gibralt Capital Corporation of Vancouver, B.C. The airline ceased operation in the spring of 2010 under that new ownership.
Management for the future . . . After the sale of their airline division, Russell Payson returned to the Skyservice Business Aviation and was joined by Marshall Myles in 2008 who assumed the role of president. His affiliation with Skyservice began in September 2000 when he joined the Skyservice Airlines Board of Directors and served as an active member through to the eventual sale of the company.
