Shanda Allen established Allen Aviation Inc. in June of 2001. Shortly after its creation, the nation was hit by tragedy on September 11, 2001. The terrorist attacks on 9/11 were difficult for both the business and its employees. Al, our chief pilot, was in the air over Bainbridge, Georgia when the first plane hit the North Tower of the World Trade Center. After receiving a transmission over the radio to "Ground all Aircraft", Al made an emergency landing and learned of the attacks in New York. He watched the small television screen in the airport as the other planes went down. The event was especially touching to him, being that he had been in the air just moments before. The events on 9/11 filled our business and our employees with patriotism and thankfulness, filling us with a desire to press on and achieve success in aviation.
Al Allen, our chief pilot, first began fostering his interest in aviation at age 15, when he took his first flight. He went on to serve in the United States Air Force, and upon completing his service, Al obtained his private pilot license and continued to immerse himself in his love for aviation. Following his private pilot license, Al obtained his commercial license and went on to do work for law enforcement. Additionally, Al has attended SIMCOM, Flight Safety, Executive Flight Training School and a number of other professional flight training schools. Finally, Al found his niche when he began attending aerial application school in Bainbridge, GA. Since his first flight at 15, Al has accrued over 12,000 hours of pilot-in-command flight time.
Since its creation, Allen Aviation has served hundreds of customers in over 8 states. We remain passionate about delivering exceptional aviation services.
