Executive Beechcraft, general aviation fixed-base operators specialising in aircraft sales and support, maintenance, avionics and aircraft management, celebrated its 70th anniversary last week on 15 November.
The company that began in 1938 as a family business (pictured: Dan Meisinger Senior, co founder of Executive Beechcraft) was sold in 2007, and is now a part of BBA Aviation, providing of aviation services and flight support based in London.
"We've been here through it all," says Ed Chevrestt, vice president and general manager of Executive Beechcraft. "In fact, EB's downtown Kansas City facility even dates back to the founding days of Trans World Airlines (TWA), where Howard Hughes himself had an office!"
As general aviation, corporate and cargo/freight aircraft navigate cross country, Executive Beechcraft is geographically centered as an ideal midway point for refueling and crew rest, as well as providing aircraft maintenance when needed.
