Levya to leverage technology experience for Flightdocs
A graduate of Spartan School of Aeronautics and a certified A&P, Danny Leon Levya started his career with Bombardier in roles including mechanic, quality assurance supervisor and narrow body programme manager.
Flightdocs welcomes industry veteran Danny Leon Levya.

Cloud-based aircraft maintenance tracking, flight operations and inventory management services provider Flightdocs has appointed Danny Leon Leyva as director of client services. Levya brings 30 years of aircraft maintenance experience to the role. A graduate of Spartan School of Aeronautics and a certified A&P, he started his career with Bombardier and fulfilled various roles including mechanic, quality assurance supervisor and narrow body programme manager. He has also worked for Comlux, Midcoast and Airbus in various technical and management roles, and was director of maintenance for Westcoast Charters, a Part 135 and 145 operation with over 30 aircraft under management. Most recently, Danny was the MST manager at StandardAero, where he was able to further apply his technical, managerial and client relationship skills.

He says: “I'm excited to join the Flightdocs team for a number of reasons. It's a dynamic organisation that has developed a solution that is leaps-and-bounds ahead of anything that I've seen in the business. For years, the aviation maintenance industry has lagged behind in terms of technology adoption. Now, I have the opportunity to bring this technology to the market while helping bring new ideas to our solution.”

President Greg Heine adds: “Danny's experience in business aviation is impressive. Not only does he have extensive knowledge on the inner workings of a flight department, he's very much in tune with modern technology and how it can be leveraged to enhance all aspects of a flight operation. He's a great addition to the team and we're happy to have him on board.”
