What do you like about doing business in Ohio?
As a leading supplier of air charter in North America, we're proud to be based in the birthplace of aviation. Ohio offers us strategic advantages for the thousands of air transports we provide to the auto industry and is a family friendly locale for our employees to call home.

Description of business:
Grand Aire is a classic example of the American dream being realized. The company started in 1985 like many small businesses do, built on the dreams of an entrepreneur with the intelligence and determination to overcome all obstacles. When co-founder Tahir Cheema arrived in the United States in 1974, he had $40 in his pocket, but his drive to succeed was as big as America itself.

While working on a degree in Engineering, T.C. earned a private pilot's certificate and purchased his first aircraft. When Tahir & Katrina Cheema expanded the operation and started the company, customers were promised "30 minutes wheels up", a previously unheard of guarantee in the charter freight industry. A skilled group of loyal employees at the Swanton, Ohio headquarters and around the country make it all happen every day. They are some of the most creative and experienced professionals in the business.

What began as a modest one plane operation has grown to become one of the Top 5 air charter providers in North America and a significant player globally. The company is a certified service-disabled veteran-owned small business (SDVOSB) with the Veteran's Administration and is a certified minority-owned company.

As the company continues to plan for the future, we are inspired by our humble beginnings. We know that 'meeting our customers commitments' is what built this company. It is our most important goal. That's why that phrase is not only in our motto, it is also in our hearts.
