Kubick Aviation Services, Inc. launched in 2004, inspired by founder Chad Kubick’s lifelong love of aviation. Located in Kingsford, we began as an aircraft
maintenance business, and later expanded to provide fuel services.
In April, 2014 Chad bought the assets of Superior Aviation and moved Kubick’s operations into the Superior Aviation hangar. This move opened up new possibilities; its prime runway location and facilities allowed Kubick to expand even further to provide avionics services. It also inspired Chad
to earn his FAA qualification to conduct on-demand air charter services.
One year later, in 2015, Chad established Northern Airways, a division of Kubick Aviation, which now operates under its air carrier certification with four different aircraft.
Today, Kubick Aviation Services and Northern Airways offer customers a full slate of maintenance, avionics, fuel, and charter services. Our team of professionals is committed to providing exceptional service, whether you’re travelling for business, learning to fly, or seeking maintenance for your own aircraft. We aim to ensure that every customer we do
business with is 100% satisfied.
