Gary is a graduate of TSTC (formally TSTI) where he earned a degree as a certified A&P/IA Mechanic. He has 32 years of experience in general and corporate aviation combined with numerous factory training courses including but not limited to, Piper, Beechcraft, Falcon 10/100, Citation 500 Series, Honeywell TFE 731 Series and Principles of Troubleshooting. Seventeen years into his career in aviation, Gary, along with his wife Janet, decided to start an aircraft maintenance business of their own. He envisioned a family-owned company that aircraft owners could trust their aircraft with. A company that would be known for its wide scope of aircraft knowledge, quality of work, outstanding customer service, fair pricing and overall Christian and family values. Along with taking care of his customers, Gary wanted to create a work environment where employees felt respected and enjoyed being at work. With all this in mind, in April of 2001 Jag Aviation, Inc. was founded.
