RavnAir Alaska (Corvus Airlines) History
Corvus Airlines, formerly Era Aviation, began operations in 1948 as Carl Brady flew the first commercial helicopter to Alaska to work on a mapping contract for the U.S. government.
These small mapping routes grew over the years until scheduled passenger service took flight in May 1983. At that time, the company was wholly owned by Rowan Companies.
After a series of owners, Era Aviation was acquired by the parent company of Hageland Aviation and Frontier Flying Service in 2009 under the Era Alaska family umbrella. The addition of Era helped form the largest air group in the state by serving more cities and passengers with the largest airplane fleet in Alaska. Era’s scheduled regional passenger and cargo flights offer comfort, convenience and impeccable service, primarily using a combination of Bombardier Dash-8 and Beechcraft 1900D and 1900C aircraft.
Era Aviation changed to Corvus Airlines in 2014 during the RavnAir Group rebrand. Corvus Airlines flies under the RavnAir Alaska brand. Because Corvus has the reservations systems to offer services of the other sister companies, the RavnAir Alaska website and general marketing image is managed by Corvus.
RavnAir Alaska flies schedules throughout the state of Alaska to over 100 destinations. Corvus’ flights 3000-3999 are operated by Hageland Aviation as Ravn Connect.
