What our clients have to say
The customer service I received last week was outstanding. My aircraft spent a week at J.A. Air Center’s facility, grounded due to weather. Twice I had to return home without my aircraft. From the girls behind the reception desk to the line personnel to the FBO Operations Manager, Randy, the staff could not have been more helpful, always quick to let me use the courtesy car to and from the local hotel or to go off airport to lunch. Even though requesting only one night in the hangar, they kept my plane there an additional two nights without charge. The lobby is spacious and comfortable with numerous chairs overlooking the ramp. There is a pilot quiet lounge with comfortable easy chairs and TV. In the large eating area, there is always fresh coffee and cookies available, even late at night. There is also a nice flight planning area with computer and printer. I will look forward to flying in to J.A. Air Center again. – Drew Bondy
on behalf of all three generations of the Effgen family, I want to tell you how pleased we all were with J. A. Air Charter’s service during our recent trip to and from Mackinac Island.Both pilots were professional and personable and did everything possible to make both legs of our trip pleasant and enjoyable. The planes were extremely comfortable and exceptionally clean. I did a considerable amount of research before choosing J. A. Air Charter and I can tell you that your pricing and sales terms were vastly superior to many of the other charter services that I contacted. If you ever need a reference, I would be happy to be of assistance. From everyone on our trip, we sincerely thank you and the staff of J. A. Air Charter for a wonderful experience. Regards, Rick Effgen
I spent a couple of hours at J.A. Air yesterday while waiting for my transponder/pitot/static check to be done in their avionics shop. This has got to be one of the nicest GA facilities anywhere! I brought a computer and found a desk in a quiet area from where I could get some work done while waiting. Everyone is so friendly and helpful… I wish I had a reason to go there more often! – Martin Pauly
What an incredible FBO. They were awesome to deal with from the first phone call I made to start the arrangements through our departure. Everybody I dealt with was professional and knowledgeable. Everybody I encountered was unbelievably friendly and helpful. Their facilities are beautiful and comfortable and their prices are very reasonable. You get a lot more service from them than you will at most other FBOs around the country. If you are stopping in Aurora, do yourself a favor and use JA while you’re there…You won’t regret it. – Kelly Vinton
I have been using DuPage for our passengers for two years and have gotten tired of the fuel prices, flying right over Aurora while in the descent, the never-ending remodeling job, and walking close to a quarter of a mile from our plane to our passengers cars. I gave J.A. Air Center at Aurora a try today and I’m impressed. Our passengers were very pleased with the service and I am more than happy with the fuel pricing. Plenty of places to relax for passengers and pilots, quiet rooms, and a workout room with a shower are all amenities that I will use in the future. I now have an FBO that I’m happy with in SW Chicago and can’t wait to return. – Keith Parker
Thank you for representing me in the sale of my Cessna 182. You addressed any concerns or input of mine. I appreciate that a lot of conversation and work went on behind the scenes for this effort to be successful. Because of this, my sale was expedited, in spite of a difficult economic environment. I will be an advocate for JA and you services. Paul Homerding
“I routinely fly into Aurora, and JA Air’s Service and Support are incredible! Whether you fly a Luscomb or a Lear, they always roll out the red carpet and treat you right! I highly recommend this place!” – Pat Schmitz
ConAgra foods aircraft are operated to the highest standards. This includes keeping our aircraft looking their best. The folks at JA Air Center have a world-class on site & mobile aircraft detailing group, RealClean. We trust their employees for any detailing, inside and out, from routine cleaning to full detailing and bright work polishing. They are knowledgeable and technically abreast of all aircraft cleaning protocols. I would recommend J.A. Air Center’s RealClean Aircraft detailing group to any aircraft operators in the Chicago area.” – Tex Hunter, Chief Pilot Chicago Base ConAgra Foods

Flight School TestimonialDear Tim, I wanted to again extend my gratitude to both you and JA for helping me attain my required multi-engine flight time. I had spent a couple of months searching nation-wide for a good place to rent a multi-engine plane, and I was hoping for a Seminole, as that was what my previous experience was with. It had been a frustrating experience, until I found your company. You were the only one who actually called me, and in a very timely manner I might add. I had reviewed the website of JA prior to contacting you, and when I arrived three weeks ago, I wasn’t let down. The facilities were great, everyone I interacted with was helpful and friendly, and the plane (449JA) was great. Being back home to fly around the Midwest was also highly enjoyable for me. Thank you for helping to coordinate the time building with me, I so appreciated your promptness, professionalism and enthusiasm. I don’t know if I could’ve asked for a better, easier experience. If I encounter anyone looking to learn to fly out in that part of the country, and frankly anyone looking to build multi-engine time, I won’t hesitate to recommend JA Flight Services. I certainly see myself returning to fly with you in the future! Again, thank you so much! Sincerely, Wes Tipton
