Important Announcement regarding our Annual Fly-in and Seminar

We're sorry to say that we will NOT be holding our Fly-in this year due to the American Yankee Association holding their National Convention at the same time in Hutchinson, Kansas. Our Main Man, John Sjaardema will be in Kansas speaking and answering questions and hasn't figured out how to be in two places at once. We encourage all you Grumman owners to attend the Convention. Lots of information can be had at the AYA website regarding the planned festivities. We hope to see you all next year in Rensselaer!

So where is Jack?

Jack Hamstra was a valued member of the staff for 11 years. Early in 2018 he and his wife Angie made the tough decision to follow a calling and use his skills and experience supporting the Mission Aviation Fellowship. They applied and were accepted and will be moving their whole family (3 kids) to somewhere in Indonesia at a MAF base, keeping planes in the air for a very worthy cause. His companionship will be missed at Excel-Air but all of us fully support the mission he has accepted.


With more than 90 years combined experience among our friendly technicians, Excel-Air Services has been a leader in the general aviation industry with exceptional quality aircraft modification and maintenance services.

Our high standards mean that you can relax knowing that the work on your aircraft has been done thoroughly and without cutting corners.  One of our goals is that your airplane leaves our shop a better airplane than when it came.  We communicate closely with you, so that you have more confidence and a better understanding of your plane.

Mission Statement

It is our intent, as employees of Excel-Air Services, Inc., to provide excellence of service to our customers through all aspects of their experience with us; from initial contact, through receiving their completed aircraft back from us.
