Emery Air, located at the Chicago-Rockford International Airport, was recently named part of the American Bonanza Society’s (ABS) Center of Excellence group of recommended service centers. Emery has long specialized in taking care of Beechcraft piston and turbine-powered aircraft. Having met ABS’ strict standards, Emery Air has been designated an ABS Center of Excellence service center.

Emery has a long history of providing service to Beechcraft aircraft, beginning in 1960. They are currently celebrating their 55th year associated with Beechcraft. Over the years, they have been both a sales and service center, including several years as the Raytheon Beechcraft Factory Service Center.

Emery is currently a Factory Service Center for piston-powered Bonanza and Baron aircraft, and also works on Beech’s turbine products, including King Air, Beechjet, Premier and Hawker business aircraft and Beech 1900 airliners. They also have a skilled Avionics department, as dealers for all major products including ADS-B solutions. Their sister company, Poplar Grove Airmotive, is continually ranked as one of the top piston-engine repair and overhaul facilities in the nation.

In addition to Beechcraft products, they are certified to work on Citation 500 series, Lear 40/45 and Challenger 600 series aircraft. They also have an experienced avionics department trained in repair and installation of major avionics suites including Garmin, Rockwell-Collins, Bendix/King and many others.
