Head of Maintenance

In his role as Head of Maintenance, Chris oversees all aspects of 135 maintenance. He has expansive knowledge of Federal Aviation Regulations and leads a team of highly skilled technicians who ensure that the GAC fleet is always in compliance with the most stringent of industry standards.

“The best thing about working with GAC is that we are a team. Our focus is not to be the biggest charter company, but to be the best at what we do. GAC embraces true professionalism, knowledgeable staff, and keeping safety as our number one priority.”

Chris began his career in aviation at a top Fortune 500 Company where he was introduced to the highest standards in aviation maintenance. In 1998, he helped launch New World Aviation as their Chief Inspector and established the company as a Gulfstream, Challenger, Hawker, and Learjet FAR Part 145 repair station. Chris was promoted to Director of Maintenance in 2003, and continued to oversee their fleet and lead their technicians until joining GAC in 2017.

Chris looks to his father, a Navy and private pilot, for inspiring his passion for aviation. “I remember flying model airplanes with my dad back when I was five years old,” Chris recalls. “Building and flying model planes together was our hobby. When I turned 16, he encouraged me to obtain my private pilot’s license and it led to bigger and better things.”

Chris earned Associates Degree in Electronics from Lincoln Technical Institute, his A&P License from Dalfort Aviation, his IA from Bakers School of Aeronautics. He has also taken numerous other professional and technical courses, along with aircraft manufacturers’ factory authorized trainings. He currently lives in Allentown, Pennsylvania.
