New routes connecting Silver City to Phoenix and Albuquerque
Hawthorne, CA: After the Grant County Board of Commissioners recommended Advanced Air, LLC, the United Stated Department of Transportation has selected Advanced Air, LLC to provide Essential Air Service (EAS) at Silver City for the next two year period starting January 6th 2019.

“We have upgraded all our aircraft with the Garmin G1000 avionics suite. The G1000 removes 300lbs of old avionics and replaces it with a more reliable glass cockpit that will increase the aircraft dispatch rate to keep up with our already high 98% on time departure statistic.” Levi Stockton – President Advanced Air, LLC
“We are really looking forward to being part of the community in Grant County. I believe our twin engine aircraft and superior dispatch reliability will prove to be a great partnership with the county. We are very happy to be here.” Aaron Krieger – Managing Director | Sales & Marketing
What is EAS? After the Deregulation Act in 1978, the U.S. government enacted to guarantee small communities in the United States access to the national air system. The Department of Transportation subsidizes airlines to serve communities across the country that would not otherwise receive air service. Currently 159 communities receive EAS subsidies, of which 44 are in Alaska.
