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 at Airport Drachten. He soon realized flying is more than a hobby, so he sold his family business (4th generation meat business in the city Sneek – Friesland) and went to get all his American (FAA-PPL-CPL-ME-IR) and European commercial pilot licenses (EASA/JAA-PPL-CPL-ME-IR+MCC+ATPL). He managed to graduate within 22 months for all licenses.

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.

Winged-Dutchman Aero Service arranges flight for there customers. All flights are performed on strict supervised EASA-AOC* aviation rules.

*EASA -AOC = European Aviation Safety Agency – Air Operation Certificate. by meaning that an commercial operation has to comply with the most stringed aviation rules to safeguard safety like the KLM airlines.

Since summer 2018 we developed the Dutch-Houses //  WDAS Hangar House, to make airports more sustainable and downgrade there operating costs. 

If a company is looking for a company aircraft or wanted to share their aircraft. Then we are happy to assist in the purchase process and guide them to put the aircraft on our EASA-AOC for commercial flights. We then rent this aircraft for commercial flights. This way the owner collects revenue out of rental which will compensate owners costs and even gain profit for the aircraft owners. Or another solutions is to share the aircraft with mutuals owner to downgrade ownership costs to minimum and fly for minimum costs per hour.
