Three generations of the Bohlke family add up to more than 60 years of aviation experience in the Caribbean. In 1959, Bill Bohlke, Sr. landed on the beautiful island of St. Croix with a dream of starting an airline in the Caribbean. Over the years, Bill Sr. was involved in the commuter airline business, air cargo, flight school and maintenance services. His son, Bill Bohlke, Jr. soon followed in his father’s footsteps and came to the island to help build their family business.
When Bill Jr. married Ruth Ann Wolfferts ‘Tuddy’ in 1966, the couple worked well together, further expanding the family aviation business through many exciting stages – ‘Virgin Islands Airways’ and ‘Eastern Caribbean Air’ – until 1984 when Bohlke International Airways was officially formed. Now, Bill and Tuddy’s son, William Richard (Billy), runs the day-to-day operations, along with the support of his wife, Laurie.
Bohlke International Airways is an award winning FBO, charter operator and FAA-certified repair station. Bohlke proudly serves and supports the U.S. military, along with corporate and private aviation.
