Howard G. Van Bortel founded Van Bortel Aircraft in 1985, as a privately owned and operated company. Howard is an aircraft owner, pilot, and entrepreneur with more than 35 years of experience in the general aviation industry. Howard learned to fly in a Cessna 150 on a grass strip in Upstate New York in 1975 and quickly became passionate about flying and aviation. That passion fueled launching Van Bortel Aircraft with $1,000 in the bank, and running it on a card table in his sister's living room. While never compromising principles, he always provides customers with the absolute best Cessna aircraft and cares for customers like no one in this world. Howard G. Van Bortel turned a $1,000 investment into the world's most recognized, trusted, and respected Cessna dealer.
In 1987, Van Bortel Aircraft moved to the Monroe County Airport in Rochester, New York, and began specializing in Cessna 172s. In 1989, the operation moved to Arlington, Texas, with more than 50 Cessna Skyhawks in inventory. In 1992, Air Power, Inc. was established to sell, service, and distribute factory engines and parts at wholesale prices.
By 1997, Van Bortel Aircraft's service center had become world-renowned for its quality workmanship on Cessna Aircraft, and the Cessna Aircraft Company honored Van Bortel Aircraft with a Cessna PropJet Service Center designation—one of only 10 in the United States!
