Item 1.01 Entry Into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On December 22, 2014, Great Lakes Aviation, Ltd. (the "Company") entered into the Loan Agreement (the "Loan Agreement") with Callidus Capital Corporation (the "Lender").

Pursuant to the Loan Agreement, the Lender agreed to make available to the Company: (i) a $25,000,000 single advance term loan facility, (ii) a revolving loan facility with availability of up to $6,000,000 and (iii) a second revolving loan facility with availability of up to $3,000,000. The $25,000,000 term loan was disbursed at closing, and substantially all of its proceeds were used to pay all outstanding borrowings, fees and expenses under the Credit Agreement dated November 6, 2011 as amended between the Company and Crystal Financial LLC and other lenders (the "Refinanced Credit Agreement"). The revolving loan facilities may be used for the Company's working capital needs.

The loans under the Loan Agreement mature on December 22, 2017 at which time all outstanding principal balances will be due and payable. No amortization payments will be required until the maturity date. Outstanding principal under the term loan and revolving loans will bear interest at a rate of 14% per year. In addition, the Company paid a 1% facility fee at closing and will be required to pay a 1.25% facility fee on the maturity date or in an event of default. The Company will also be assessed a 1% unused line fee. In connection with the Loan Agreement, the Company granted first-ranking security interests to the Lender covering substantially all of the assets of the business. The Loan Agreement contains certain affirmative and negative covenants which are usual and customary with asset based loans, and the Company agreed to maintain a fixed charge coverage ratio.

The forgoing description does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Loan Agreement and related documents, copies of which are filed as Exhibits 10.1, 10.2 and 10.3 hereto and are incorporated herein by reference.

Item 1.02 Termination of a Material Definitive Agreement.

On December 22, 2014, in connection with the Loan Agreement described above, the Company repaid obligations totaling $24.9 million, which constituted all outstanding borrowings, fees and expenses under the Refinanced Credit Agreement. In connection with the repayment, Crystal Financial LLC and other lenders under the Refinanced Credit Agreement terminated their security agreements and released all of their security interests in the Company's aircraft and other assets.

Item 2.03 Creation of a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligation Under an

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangement of a Registrant.

The information set forth in Items 1.01 is incorporated by reference into this Item 2.03.
