Chandler Air Service, Inc. is owned and operated by John and Diana Walkup. The business was originally founded in 1976 and purchased by us on January 1, 1980. We started out with one airplane and presently operate more than 25 aircraft, have a full service fuel facility and aircraft maintenance.

The entire facility including aircraft and auto parking covers approximately five acres of ground. A new long term lease was initiated in 2012 and in the summer of 2015 construction started on our current facility. Chandler Air Service offers an 8,000-square-foot office building with reception, pilot shop, flight instructor offices, classroom and study areas, conference room, break room and lounge areas. In addition to our office we have a 14,000 sq ft executive hangar and an 8,000 sq ft maintenance hangar.

The business is located on the Chandler Municipal Airport in Chandler, Arizona. The airport has two parallel runways, ATC control tower and instrument approaches to the airport. This airport has over 200,000 operations a year and no commercial air carriers. Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport is just 18 miles away for easy access.

Chandler Air Service, Inc. operates under FAA Certificate No. HQ8S199Q under Federal Aviation Regulations Part 141 for approved flight schools.  We are particularly proud of the FAA approvals of our Aerobatic and Tailwheel training programs.

We are also approved by the Veterans Administration for VA assistance in our FAA approved courses after the private. This includes the Aerobatic and Tailwheel training programs!

In addition we are approved for international students with the Transportation and Security Administration along with the Student Exchange and Visitor Information System for issuing M-1 student visas.
