Southern Airways Express Selects C208


In early 2013 Southern Air Express changed travel opportunities when they opened operations in Memphis, TN. They run regular service between their home base and the Gulf Coast in the Cessna 208. Southern Airways Express as a concept started in 2012. There had been a need for lift out of the Memphis area after the airlines pulled service to many Gulf Coast destinations. Southern Airways Express (callsign Lightspeed) operates regularly between Memphis, New Orleans, Atlanta, Birmingham, … [Read more...]

FBO Testimonial

Mr. Zeman, I wanted to send a note expressing my great satisfaction in the quality of Service that Randy Fank, and your FBO team provided for our Aircraft & Company.

Flight School Testimonial

Dear 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 … [Read more...]

  Tim -   I am just writing to tell you of the wonderful experience my husband and I had when we visited your flight center on Monday, Aug. 15, 2011.   I had purchased one of your Groupon's that you were offering on line as a present for my husband's birthday since he loves planes and anything to do with aviation.   Upon arriving at your flight center we were greeted by Jeremy and Vince.  My husband (Tom) explained that we were there because of the Groupon and Vince … [Read more...]

Intrductory Flight Testimonial

I bought a flight lesson Groupon for my boyfriend for his birthday. It was one of the most amazing experiences. We were greeted immediately by 2 very friendly employees including our flight instructor. Even though I was not going to be the one flying I was included in EVERY aspect of the lesson. The instructor started first with a tour of the entire facility, explaining different types of air craft they house and all of the features J.A. have available to air craft owners from the beautiful … [Read more...]

Flight Training Testimonial

Hello Mr. Genc, I wanted to take a minute to let you know how impressed I was with my intro to flight experience today. I was greeted at the door by Tim Heiser as soon as I walked in. I was given a quick run down about the aircraft that I was going to be flying as we walked around it and went over the main components along with what they do. The simulation was fun, till I almost stalled out on landing (pretty sure I would have killed myself if I was in the real aircraft!) The directions and … [Read more...]

Flight Training Testimonial

I used to bring my kids to the Aurora Airport to watch planes come and go. I remember being jealous of those that could fly. Since a young man I have loved the era of planes from WWII. The big radial engines and the sounds they make. I finally got to a place in life that afforded me the opportunity to pursue a pilot license and never imagined it would be at the place that I used to take my kids. We looked at flight schools in the area and picked JA because the facility and aircraft were so nice. … [Read more...]

Flight Training Testimonial

JA Aviation: Thank you for the excellent flight training experience! Prior to working with JA Aviation, all of my training was conducting through Southern Illinois University - Carbondale. Having never flown in a Part 61 environment, I had no idea what to expect. Overall, I was thoroughly impressed with my experience at JA Aviation! Initially, JA Aviation was one of five different flight training schools I contacted in November of 2010 about obtaining my Aircraft Multi-Engine Land addition … [Read more...]
