Ambassador Program

You dont have to be Warren Buffett to joinn the 0.1%…….. of Certificated Airmen!


Owner/operators have long understood the value of owning aircraft as a business tool.

Together Cessna and JA Air Center have charted a route for avid non-pilots to realize the time and money saving benefits of aircraft ownership and Private Air Travel.  Purchase a new Cessna Aircraft and for a fixed yearly rate JA will provide a full-time commercially rated pilot to be at your service whenever you want to go!

About JA Air Center:

J.A. Air Center was formed on a basis of providing dealership-caliber service to aircraft.

J.A. Air began with a brief partnership in 1965 between Charlie Parker and Jack Goeken. Parker later teamed with an airline pilot to found Joliet Avionics, a small avionics shop at Joliet Airport in Joliet, Illinois. The company enjoyed substantial growth throughout the late 60′s

Today J.A. Air Center occupies more than 100,000-square-feet of hangar; 10,000-square-feet of office space; and employs more than 85 people in the Chicago area. Thanks to the dedication and expertise of its employees, J.A. is now one of the Midwest’s largest Cessna Service Center’s, operates an aviation school and charter operation.

Sure, Business Class is nice….. But would you rather have the
front seat on a bus or Private Livery and driver waiting downstairs
