Although we have two names, we are one company. In 1985, Freight Runners Express® began flying cargo throughout Wisconsin with one single engine airplane. In 1992, we added passenger service using the name Air Charter Express.

Since then, FRE/ACE® has grown tremendously, and now operates a fleet of almost 30 aircraft throughout North America. This longevity and growth have given us the first-hand experience necessary to provide safe and reliable flights.

We are a growing company with plenty of room to advance your career and increase pay based on job performance, upgrades, and duration of employment.

We are proud to be a drug and alcohol-free workplace and require pre-employment and random prohibited substance testing. Each applicant must be a United States citizen or have the right to work in the United States. FRE/ACE is an equal opportunity employer.
