History

Narrative Summary:
The Macedonian Government Aviation operates two aircraft, a Learjet 25B and Learjet 60. The Learjet 25B and a King Air 200 were part of the Macedonian inventory since the Republic of Macedonia was a part of Yugoslavia. Unfortunately, the King Air was lost in an accident in early 2004, and the Learjet 60 was obtained as a replacement. All aircraft carry civilian markings.

Key Dates:
1976    Establishment of Macedonian Government Aviation unit.

Current Status:
The Macedonian Government Aviation aircraft are used primarily for VIP transport and for calibrating ground based radar stations.

Future Plans:

It is believed that the single Yak-40 Codling that will be delivered from Yugoslavia to the Macedonian Air Force will became part of Macedonian Government Aviation and will be used for transport of Macedonian VIPs.
