About Us

backcountry flight experienceGem Air owners, Dan Schroeder and JoAnn Wolters, have been in the aviation industry since 1977. They successfully operated Salmon Air in Idaho for over 20 years, and Gem Air continues to reflect both their experience and their commitment to community and aviation. 

They have lived in small mountain communities for the majority of their lives, so they understand the importance of having good transportation options. They are excited to help connect the people in our region to the places they need to go. Gem Air is committed to safe and reliable service, and the entire company is looking forward to serving you.


Our airplanes perfectly suited to scheduled service between smaller cities, and we have a number of great backcountry planes as well. We take pride in our fleet of aircraft, and are proud to fly with:

  • turbo-prop Cessna Caravans,
  • two twin-engine Piper Chieftains,
  • two Britten-Norman Islanders
  • a single-engine Cessna 210
  • a single-engine Cessna 206
  • a single-engine Cessna 172

Safety is extremely important to all Gem Air employees. Our regularly scheduled maintenance is done with meticulous care. And don’t worry – we don’t forget about cleanliness or comfort either. Check out photos of our great fleet.
