Aircraft Management

J.A. Flight Services is a division of J.A. Air Center, an aviation service provider to the greater Chicagoland area since 1965. As the only Cessna-affiliated business in the area that offers full aircraft management and charter services, our affiliation allows us to buy parts directly from Cessna, which can circumvent having to reposition your aircraft for normal maintenance events. Our service center has over 60 dedicated employees, so even avionics and instrument service can be fully completed within house. Additionally, as a class IV FAA repair station in Illinois, J.A. Flight Services is exempt from charging State Sales Tax on aircraft parts.

When you partner with J.A. Flight Services for your aircraft management, you can save thousands in hangar, fuel, pilot, tax, and maintenance costs!


Costs at Chicago airports can be 20%-30% higher than Aurora Municipal due to the close proximity to Chicago. With one stop flight between our facility located conveniently off I-88 and downtown Chicago, the reverse commute can be a big money loan with no credit check winner for a slightly longer drive. Even repositioning your aircraft can offer savings over basing at airports like Midway or Chicago Executive.
