TulipCity Air Service Takes Flight

 

For the Wrights, Hughes, Earharts and Lindberghs, flight was the ultimate in adventure and independence.  At Tulip City Air Service, we like to think the spirit that fueled their passion lives on.  That’s why since 1967, we have provided businesses, families and those who love independence, the freedom of on-demand travel 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

 

The Tulip City Air Service story began in the mid-sixties when Ron Ludema, its president, learned to fly.  He received his license to fly in 1965 and continued to earn all of his ratings.  In 1967 Ron combined his passion for flying with a vision to own his own business and Tulip City Air Service was born.  Our first airplane was a single engine Bonanza and we chartered many hours while crisscrossing the United States and Canada.  At that time, two full-time and two part-time employees constituted the entire Tulip City Air Service staff.



 

 

As has always been our commitment, Tulip City Air Service, Inc., has continuously updated its fleet and facility to meet the needs and safety concerns of our customers.  In 1998, we added our first jet, the Falcon 10, whose speed doubles that of a turboprop aircraft.  2004 marked another turning point when we added the luxurious Gulfstream G200 and international jet service.  Since then, we have upgraded aircraft to the ultra-luxurious Gulfstream G450 and can provide non-stop service from Holland to Europe and Latin America.  As always, we are looking to the future with great expectations.
