AeroTACA (acronym of AeroTaxi Casanare) was an airline based in Bogotá, Colombia. It operated charter flights within Colombia and to neighbouring countries. Its main base was El Dorado International Airport, Bogotá.
The airline was established and started operations in 1965 as Aerotaxi Casanare, but changed to the present title in 1996 with the acquisition of larger aircraft. It is wholly owned by the Urdaneta family.
The airline was forced to cease operating in September 2005 following the crash of West Caribbean Airways Flight 708 in Venezuela. After the crash, the Colombian Civil Aviation authority required that all airlines undergo a special inspection of its maintenance facilities and aircraft. Aerotaca was one of three airlines forced to cease operating due to a failure of these inspections (along with Intercontinental de Aviación and West Caribbean itself).
The AeroTACA fleet includes the following aircraft (at March 2007):
- Raytheon Beech King Air C90B
- Beechcraft 1900C
- de Havilland Canada DHC-6 Twin Otter
- SAAB 340B
- Fairchild Hiller FH-227
- Flight International 27 March 2007
