As a 45+ year veteran of the commercial aviation/avionics industry I am looking forward to joining a long established and respected aviation company, Hillcrest Aircraft Company (HAC), as Avionics Department Manager.  HAC has been in operation since 1956 at the Lewiston-Nez Perce County Regional airport in Lewiston Idaho achieving many industry “firsts” throughout its 60+ year history.  The Avionics Department of this unique and innovative organization is well equipped and ready to provide avionics sales and service in this region.

My aviation background began as an apprentice Avionics Technician for a northern British Columbia “bush airline” that operated a wide of range of aircraft including the Douglas DC-3, Dehavilland DHC-3 Otter & DHC-2 Beaver, and Grumman G-21A Goose aircraft.  Learning the technology, skills, and commitment necessary to keep this diverse fleet operational was a challenging and rewarding introduction to the world of commercial avionics.

My career in avionics has taught me that there is always something new to learn and improvements to be made in the application and operation of electronics in aircraft.  This philosophy was instrumental in the evolution to becoming a founding partner and VP of Customer support for Northern Airborne Technology (NAT); a pioneering manufacturer of integrated Audio/ICS control and management systems for aircraft with high levels of interior ambient noise.  NAT and my subsequent venture, Island Avionics, provided a unique perspective and opportunity to successfully resolve many of the audio system integration and installation issues present in numerous rotary and fixed wing aircraft.

This next venture will allow me to focus all the experience and skills accumulated over a long and varied career toward the existing and future customers of HAC.  I am excited for the challenge and opportunities that this new venture will bring and looking forward to bringing this service back to this airport and the aviation community of this region
