History[edit]

Since 1983 CSI’s Military Services has provided airlines with representation to the U.S. Department of Defense to support the military airlift market.[citation needed] CSI represents air carriers to the DOD through the U.S. Transportation Command, which includes handling Civil Reserve Air Fleet issues and coordinating domestic and international military air charter requirements. Participation in the CRAF program supports the United States’ wartime airlift capacity and ensures that the DOD has access to supplemental aircraft.[citation needed] As a participant in the CRAF program, air carriers operate military air charter requirements during peacetime, and CSI’s assistance enables them to generate supplemental revenue. Since 1990, CSI has provided its services for the federal government air transportation system. Services include chartered aircraft, leased aircraft with maintenance and logistics, standby aircraft, purchased aircraft and full-time aircraft management. The company has several contracts in place with various government agencies.[2] Since 2004, CSI has held a GSA Schedule for Air Charter and Aircraft Leasing. The GSA Schedule offers the government the ability to use a contracting tool for a full range of aircraft using certified air carriers. Since 2007, CSI offers private jet solutions and hourly packages for jet membership. Since 2009, CSI offers fuel services.[3]
