About Sundance Aviation

Sundance Aviation originally started operations at the Vista Field Airport in Kennewick in 1979. In February of 2005, Sue and Clif made the move to the Richland Airport. Since then, they have grown each year adding more employees as well as additional services to offer their clientele. Currently, Sundance offers a full service Fixed Base Operation and is the only operator on the field at the Richland Airport.

With a small business atmosphere, Sundance is able to meet the needs of pilots, students, and airport users. Looking forward to the future, we hope to continue to inspire as many people as possible to be a part of the General Aviation community, or be the stepping stone facilitating to further flight endeavors.
