Aircraft Fleet Services
A primary function of the Department of Aviation's Capital City Airport Division is to provide safe and cost effective in-state and out-of-state transportation for State employees.  Elected officials and state employees are encouraged to utilize state aircraft whenever conducting official business and when time is essential. Flying increases employee productivity and is often the most cost efficient means of travel when comparing driving time, lodging and meal expenses.

Any state agency personnel, elected officials, Kentucky’s State Universities and Community & Technical College System and people doing business with the State.


Follow these simple steps to request and obtain state aircraft services: 
Step 1: Contact our Flight Scheduler (Serai Evans) at (502) 564-0099 to obtain a trip quote. You will need to provide departure date, destination, time you need to arrive at destination, any intermediate stops, number of passengers, and anticipated time of return. 
Step 2: The Flight Scheduler will then determine the safest and most economical means of transporting you to your destination. You will also be provided with an approximate cost of the trip. 
Step 3: Prior to the flight, an authorization eForm must be completed and signed by your department's Authorized Agent to give us your agency's approval to complete the flight.
Step 4: Flights are inter-accounted to your agency at the end of each month and you are billed for the actual flight time only.*
* The exception is pilot overtime (time in excess of regular 7.5 hr. workday) which will be billed at a rate of $50.00/hr. per pilot.
