About Us

Bill Beard, owner of Cape Air Charter has been in the aviation industry for over 35 years. As an aircraft owner and Airline Transport Pilot, Bill has over 15,000 flight hours. He began his career as a Charter pilot for Cape Central Airways eventually founding Cape Air Charter in 2001. Cape Air Charter was founded out of necessity as customers needed a safe and cost effective way to travel to short business meetings throughout the state. Cape Air Charter has grown as a result of the requests for private charters to remote locations and popular vacation spots as an alternative means of travel, saving time and money.

Since 2001, Cape Air Charter has consistently and safely been arranging charter flight services out of Cape Girardeau and surrounding communities.  Over the years we have flown to locations throughout the United States and the Caribbean Islands.  

Ensuring the safety of our Customers is our number one priority. Cape Air Charter works diligently to ensure a commitment to best practices in pilot training and experience, progressive aircraft maintenance, and a flawless safety history.

There have been no accidents, no FAA recordable incidents, no FAA notices or FAA corrective actions from any flight arranged by Cape Air Charter – EVER!
