Powered by Kenny Dichter the King Air has enjoyed a renaissance in the past five years as the core of the Wheels Up fleet. Every Saturday during the fall, the King Air 350 gets a close-up bringing the guest picker to ESPN’s College GameDay.

TV commercials featuring New England Patriots’ future Hall of Fame quarterback Tom Brady show him climbing into a Wheels Up King Air.
