Sjoerd-jan van Klaarbergen


Winged-Dutchman Aero Service is lead by Sjoerd-Jan van Klaarbergen. He is 100% owner of the company and pilot. Sjoerd-Jan van Klaarbergen began his aviation career in the year 2000 when he started flying as a hobby. He soon realized flying is more than a hobby, so he sold his family business (3th generation) and went to get all his American and European commercial pilot licenses. He managed to graduate within 22 months.

Nice to know;

The Company name “Winged-Dutchman Aero Service” was born in Florida – USA. Since the first and last name Sjoerd-Jan van Klaarbergen is hard to pronounce for native English speaking people. He earned this nick name. Back in the Netherlands he realized this would be an unique name for his company.

The free translations of  “Winged-Dutchman” in the dutch language is  “Gevleugelde Hollander”
