About Us

Meet Chad Kubick

Founder Chad Kubick has more than 25 years of experience in the aviation industry. His career began by performing inspections, repairs, and modifications of single and twin-engine piston and turboprop aircraft — work he still does today.

In 2004, he founded Kubick Aviation Services, Inc. which was inspired by a lifelong love of aviation. Chad’s vision is to provide top-quality service at a fair price to the aviation community and its customers.

Chad lives in Iron Mountain with his beautiful wife, Jeanette, and their five children. He was born and raised in Iron Mountain’s Northside. After graduating from high school, he attended the Spartan School of Aeronautics in Oklahoma then worked with several companies before returning to the U.P. Chad initially worked for Superior Aviation and in 2014, he fulfilled his dream by buying Superior Aviation and expanding Kubick Aviation Services to further the company’s capabilities. Northern Airways is an extension of Chad’s avionic passion providing first-class private charter and shuttle services to customers throughout the Upper Peninsula and Northern Wisconsin.

Outside of work, Chad enjoys spending time with his family and friends. He is president of the Badwater Ski-ters Waterski Show Club, which puts on free performances twice a week throughout the summer months. He is actively involved in the club’s growth and fundraising efforts and serves as the boat driver of the team’s triple rig. Chad is also a longstanding member of Northwoods Air Lifeline and the EAA Chapter 439.

We also offer hotel and car rental arrangements, all with just a single call. Whether it’s for business or pleasure, fly smarter with the U.P.’s only executive-class charter service.


The purest reflection of our company is often supported in the words of those we serve – our customers. Here are a few recent comments we have received regarding our exceptional air service at Northern Airways.

    My family and I use Northern Airways because of its convenience and their special attention to the little details. We travel with our young kids frequently, and Northern Airlines always remembers to cater to their creative minds. We’re sold on their high-level service not found on a commercial flight.”

Dr. W, Manitowac, WI

  Not to sound cliché, but time definitely equals money in the business arena. We look to Northern Airways when a time-efficient, safe and secure method of air travel is part of a customer solution. My company aims to provide exceptional service to our customers. I look for the same in those we choose to do business with and it is why we choose Northern Airlines.”
