About Modern Transportation
Modern Transportation was founded in 1945 by Mr. Pete Barnard, the owner and founder of Modern Welding Company. As Pete was expanding his business across the country, he quickly realized that commercial travel was quite time-consuming and sought a more efficient method of air travel by purchasing his first private airplane. Modern Welding has since owned eleven aircraft, and operated Modern Transportation in Owensboro, KY. We look forward to your visit and hope that Modern Transportation makes your trip to Owensboro memorable.
