A highlight of his early career involved working on the Douglas DC-6 and the Curtiss C-46 Commando, two aircraft built for military transport during World War II.

CHRIS GONZALES, Avionics Manager

Christopher has been involved in the Avionics field for over 40 years and has been involved in every aspect of the field from the planning, execution, and completion of projects.

Chris served in the United States Air Force for 10 years, working on aircraft such as the McDonnell Douglas F-4 Phantom II, Lockheed SR-71, U-2, TR-1 Northrop T-38, and the Boeing KC-135. After his service, Chris was hired by American Eagle Airlines in San Luis Obispo, CA, entering the civilian Avionics field and earning various awards and letters for his outstanding performance. After his time at American, Chris relocated to Michigan where he began working for Chrysler Pentastar Aviation in Waterford. While at Chrysler, he was trained on business jets which included Gulfstreams, Hawkers and Citations. Chris was directly involved in the first Gulfstream IV Honeywell Heads up display installation. He also assisted with engineering in the installation of the first Gulfstream IV Satellite Television installation.

His experience from piston aircraft such as Cessna, Piper, and Beech to turbine aircraft such as King Air, Premier Jet, Gulfstream, Hawkers, and Cessna business jets and rotorcraft has given him the unique perspective on the Avionics systems for the various aircraft flying today. Chris strives to deliver to his customers the best customer service.
