To make that possible for even complex customer queries, the company’s management is available 24/7. K5-Aviation chooses not to use customer service representatives or assistants as middlemen: aircraft owners can always contact someone with decision-making powers at K5-Aviation, because client satisfaction has top priority for us.

K5-Aviation deals with your issues efficiently and without detours. We operate your aircraft in the most professional way conceivable, while remaining flexible to the wishes of owners and passengers alike. Some of our management staff are qualified pilots who fly with the K5 fleet, so you always know that the quality and safety on board are constantly being inspected and ensured by experts.

In order to continue to be able to provide this efficiency and flexibility to the aircraft owners in the future, the management of K5-Aviation keeps its fleet size small – a liberty that only an independent company can allow itself.
