You will also find my (Bruce Watts) operations base in our office adjacent to Pam Freed. I feel quite fortunate to have enjoyed a varied lifetime career involving many aspects of general and corporate aviation flight and maintenance operations as well as extensive aircraft sales and acquisition experience. Special thanks to my wife Stacey and daughter Calista (and friends) for helping me through through all life’s journey to now.
Today, I am personally happy to share my 12,000+ hours of accident free flight experience with others though offering my services as an active flight instructor and contract corporate pilot. I cut my teeth in our family history of 42 years as a independent Beechcraft Dealership, flying, selling, and managing maintenance for the Beechcraft product line, particularly the Bonanza, Baron and King Air, as well as Hawkers, Citations and other corporate jet equipment.
Over the years I have experienced our aircraft products evolve from early piston power with steam gauges and basic VOR/DME equipment though piston, turboprop and jet equipment incorporating every navigation system from the first RNAV, Loran, VLF/Omega and early GPS to today’s completely integrated and data linked EFIS glass panels. (Now I fly with a data linked iPad including flight planning, all IFR/VFR charts, weather and traffic avoidance on my knee).
Through these experiences, I feel uniquely qualified to assist your aviation needs, whether it be providing advanced flight instruction in your 1968 Bonanza with new glass (and an older pilot) or providing inside industry advice relative to your next corporate jet purchase and operation. We also offer aircraft sales brokerage and purchase assistance services, Beech product line specialty.
