Key Air’s Maintenance Department is set to return to its full-service model effective April 1, 2015. Plans are underway to restore our full maintenance capabilities to perform on-site maintenance and repair services in addition to the department’s current oversight, planning, scheduling and coordination of maintenance events and repairs. With the return of our full capabilities, we will be phasing out our alliance with Pentastar Aviation, who currently service our managed aircraft fleet, as we begin to perform these functions in-house. To support Key Air’s managed aircraft fleet and extend services to tenant aircraft based at our Waterbury-Oxford Airport location, Key Air will be hiring additional highly skilled and experienced maintenance professionals.
Meet Tony Ryan, our newest addition to the Maintenance Department. Tony brings a great deal of maintenance experience to Key Air. Formerly with Pentastar Aviation for the past 15 years, he served as their Maintenance Manager in charge of setting up and running their 145 repair station at OXC. With that facility closing, we are pleased to have Tony stay on to join our team. His maintenance experience encompasses various aircraft types from Gulfstreams, Falcons and Challengers to Hawkers, Lears and Citations. He has also maintained many of our own managed aircraft. Tony is a licensed A&P Mechanic and is Hazmat trained.
Tony attended Southwestern Michigan College where he earned his Airframe and Powerplant Rating Certificate. He joins the Maintenance Department as a senior mechanic/technician.
