Meet Air Command’s New Owner
(March 13, 2018) In September 2017, Harold Smith sold Air Command International to Joe Covelli. The company specializes in manufacturing gyroplane rotorcraft sold worldwide as build-to-fly kits. As part of the transaction, the company’s headquarters, to include operations and manufacturing, were moved to River Falls, Wisconsin (near Minneapolis, Minnesota). Harold, an aeronautical engineer, and his son Doug successfully operated Air Command from the airport in Caddo Mills, Texas for nearly 25 years. According to Joe, “We look forward to continuing the great tradition of Air Command in manufacturing production gyroplane kits, parts, and accessories for customers worldwide”. Currently, there are over 2,500 Air Command single and two-seat gyroplanes flying worldwide. The company’s first flight was in 1984. The website is www.aircommand.com.
