From our humble beginnings doing flight training in Albuquerque, NM in 1994 to becoming a highly successful diversified aviation services company today, Bode Aviation, Inc. has kept grounded with core values of Integrity, Excellence, Innovation, and Community. Our growth has been shaped by these values and our consistent desire to provide the best service to our customers.  This led to the addition of a 14 CFR Part 135 Charter operation in 1996, the first of two Fixed Based

Operations at Double Eagle II airport in 2002 and a 14 CFR Part 145 Maintenance and Repair Facility in 2002. Most recently we have expanded our flight operations into the Caribbean and are providing service between Puerto Rico and destinations in the British Virgin Islands and beyond. Our focus on giving back to the community has guided our growth in areas such as Aerial Firefighting, support to the Department of Defense, and other governmental agencies.

Our maintenance expertise has enabled the growth of maintenance operations to include performing on-call maintenance for major airlines that service Albuquerque’s international airport.  The spirit of innovation that runs through Bode shaped the use of cutting-edge defense mapping technology in aerial firefighting for the State of Colorado, increasing the situational awareness of personnel in the air and on the ground.


Bode Aviation, Incorporated (BAI) is a diversified aviation business headquartered in Albuquerque, New Mexico providing safety, security and service with flight and maintenance operations in several other locations.
