Founded in 2011 by Tanner Overland, Overland Aviation provides aviation and flight services to the Williston Basin and beyond.

Originating as an aerial imagery and survey service provider, Overland Aviation has grown throughout the years to provide all aspects of aviation and pilot services, including a Part 61 Flight School, commercial air tours, and aerial pipeline patrol. 

In August 2018, through a Request for Proposal process, the City of Williston selected Overland Aviation as the Fixed Base Operator (FBO) provider for the new Williston Basin International Airport, KXWA.

Recognizing the need for additional aviation services to meet the demands of a growing community, Overland Aviation partnered with GFK Flight Support to bring air charter back to western North Dakota. Through this partnership, Overland Aviation and GFK Flight Support will provide Air Charter, Aircraft Management, and Pilot Services across all of North Dakota. 

Overland Aviation is committed to providing safe, reliable, and competitively priced aviation services and we look forward to continue improving the general aviation services of western North Dakota, as together with the City of Williston, the airport tenants and stakeholders, we write the next chapter of history for our community with the opening of the Williston Basin International Airport.
