Baker Aviation named Ray Goyco, Jr. CEO of a newly formed organization, Baker Aviation Services Group, which will focus on strategic partnerships, contract management, compliance, and Hot-Stop “L” fire containment kit and parts sales. In addition, the new group will be tasked with expanding the company’s relationships with dealers and distributors.
Formerly president and COO of Baker’s aviation maintenance organization, Goyco has led Baker’s maintenance activities since 2012. Baker Aviation credited him with expanding its FAA Part 145 repair station at Addison Airport north of Dallas. Goyco will remain at the Addison Airport location, but will also act as a direct consultant to the Baker Aviation ownership on all aspects of the company and its divisions.
The establishment of Baker Aviation Services Group comes as Baker Aviation centralizes its charter, management, and maintenance businesses at Fort Worth Meacham International Airport. Baker Aviation is building a 66,000-sq-ft complex that will include two new hangars with 28-foot doors that will accommodate the latest large-cabin business jets.
“We created this entity to capture and manage new opportunities, and I am confident that Ray will continue to help us grow the Baker business as we take this next step in our Fort Worth expansion plan,” said Baker Aviation founder W. Stanley Baker Jr.
