Rectrix Aviation Celebrates 20,000th Charter Flight at Worcester Regional Airport

Rectrix Commercial Aviation Services marked its 20,000th charter flight at a ceremony at Worcester Regional Airport (ORH). Rectrix uses ORH as a maintenance base-of-operations for its aircraft fleet. To celebrate the milestone, a Rectrix charter jet was given a water cannon salute as it taxied to the company’s Aerodrome terminal. Congressman Jim McGovern, Boston Bruin legend Bobby Orr, Worcester Airport Director Andy Davis, Worcester City Manager Ed Augustus and Worcester Chamber President Tim Murray, joined Rectrix CEO Richard Cawley, Rectrix employees, airport staff and other community leaders to recognize this important aviation achievement for the company.

Rectrix was founded in 2005 and its charter division began in 2010, reaching its 20,000th flight in only seven years. Today the company is the largest private jet operator based in Massachusetts. The company’s first class aviation charters, network of state-of-the-art terminals and top-rated maintenance facilities are recognized in the industry for their attention to customer service and safety. The company’s charter division owns a fleet of Lear 45, Challenger 604 and Challenger 300 aircraft capable of flying customers to domestic and international destinations. In 2015, Rectrix opened a new Aerodrome facility at ORH to service all small and large general aviation and corporate aircraft utilizing the airport. In 2016, Rectrix expanded its aviation offerings with the launch of a commercial passenger shuttle serving Cape Cod.

“The entire Rectrix team is so pleased to achieve this milestone and mark the moment here in Worcester. Our Aerodrome facility at ORH has been a source of tremendous growth for us since it opened in late 2015—and designating this airport as our maintenance base-of-operations this past year was indicative of that success,” said Rectrix CEO Richard Cawley. “We are committed to being a partner to Massport and Worcester and look forward to seeing continued success at ORH in the coming years as the airport’s new CAT III instrument landing system comes into operation.” 

“I am thrilled to be here with Rectrix to mark this important moment in their company history—it is a proud moment for both Rectrix and the City of Worcester,” said Congressman Jim McGovern. “Worcester Regional Airport is a vital stimulus for the Central Massachusetts economy and we value Rectrix’s commitment to fostering business and job growth in Worcester.”

“Rectrix has been and continues to be a strong partner for us to have at Worcester Regional Airport,” said Worcester Airport Director Andy Davis. “They have brought new energy to the airport and stimulated substantial growth, which builds upon the strategic plans we have for the airport’s future and helps to improve the experience for the passengers we serve here every day.”
