North Carolina-based Modern Aviation Wilmington has added avionics repair and installation to its Part 145 repair station operations, which the company said fully rounds out its four decades of maintenance capabilities at Wilmington International Airport.
As part of that expansion, the company hired Ryan Zaiser as avionics manager. Zaiser previously spent 14 years at Gulfstream Aerospace as product support avionics/aircraft support manager, working the full line of Gulfstream jets. Prior to Gulfstream, he worked 10 years between Toledo Jet Center and Constant Aviation and has extensive design and installation experience with a number of avionics manufacturers’ and connectivity providers’ product lines, including Garmin, Honeywell, Collins Aerospace, Universal Avionics, Gogo, and Satcom Direct.
Also, Modern Aviation has been tapped as a Garmin avionics dealership and added an Airtext dealership, the latter of which enables the company to diversify its offerings in cost-effective solutions for airborne connectivity.
