About Us

Air Associates is a general aviation services company providing a diverse range of services including fixed base operations (fueling, hangar, maintenance) aircraft management and charter and flight training. The Company was established in 2002 when T & C Aviation Enterprises, Inc. purchased a small FBO on Johnson County Executive Airport (OJC) and began operations as Air Associates of Kansas. At the time, we provided fixed base services from two hangars and a small fleet of rental aircraft. Today we continue to provide FBO services out of OJC, but we also provide charter and aircraft management services out of both OJC and Kansas City Charles B. Wheeler Downtown Airport (MKC), operating as Air Associates Charter and MKC Aviation. On any given day, you may find our Associates doing everything from aircraft maintenance or providing flight instruction in a single engine Cessna or crewing a variety of aircraft for owner flights, charter flights throughout the North American Continent, all supported by a dedicated staff of administrative personnel.

    Hi,

    We are contacting you on behalf of ACED. Adult Continuing Education for Persons with Developmental Disabilities (ACED) offers adults the opportunity to attend non-credit classes in an educational and social environment. The ACED program is designed to teach independent living skills and provide life-enhancing experiences. ACED is offered by the UMKC Institute for Human Development, a University Center for Excellence in
    Developmental Disabilities, MCC-Longview and MCC-Blue River, with funding from the Developmental Disability Services of Jackson County~EITAS.
    So this semester we have a class teaching about Flights and aviation. We are looking for a guest speaker talking on what steps to do to get a pilot’s license. We are looking forward for one of your pilots to help us in this issue. We need a one hour lecture/speaking about the specified topic from 11:30 am to 12:30 pm on any one of the dates(3/21/15, 3/28/15, 4/11/15, 4/18/15, 4/25/15, 5/2/15 ).

    You can reply back to seelbinderw@umkc.edu or call at 816-235-1754

    Thanks & Regards,
    Wendy Seelbinder

      Wendy,

      This definitely sounds like something we’d be interested in pursuing. Please expect a call from someone in our Flight School to talk in greater detail.

    Good morning. Would it be possible to provide the contact details for your Parts Manager or Director of Maintenance?

    Any assistance you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you and have a good week.

      You can reach our Maintenance Director by calling 913.764.4800 and asking for Maintenance.

    Do you offer simulator services for people who have never flown before?

    1. airassoc says:

      Thank you for inquiring! Yes, we do have a flight simulator for rent. We offer a Pilot QuickStart program which includes (4) lessons in the flight simulator and then a “graduation” lesson in an aircraft. It’s a great way to gain experience without some of the uncertainty of flying an actual aircraft. Call us to schedule some time 913.764.4800!
