Elliott Aviation makes experienced hires
Paul McQuay and Michael Frazier have joined Elliott Aviation as vice president/general manager and King Air service supervisor, respectively. They will be based at its Quad City airport facility in Moline, Illinois.

US-based Elliott Aviation has welcomed Air Force veteran Paul McQuay as vice president/general manager and Michael Frazier as King Air service supervisor at its Quad City International airport facility in Moline, Illinois.

The appointment of McQuay redirects the talents of Lawrence Harting, who moves from VP of operations in Moline to director of scheduling and planning, supporting McQuay and the future growth objectives of the Moline facility.

McQuay comes to the company following a career in both the manufacturing and aerospace industries. He spent the last four years at Cobham in the Quad Cities, serving as the director of operations engineering. He has also held other leadership and individual roles in operations supervision and management, engineering, quality and sales.

“We are very excited to welcome Paul to our senior leadership team and to lead the Moline facility growth plan,” says president and CEO Greg Sahr. “We look forward to incorporating his leadership experience, knowledge and fresh perspectives and ideas as Elliott progresses.”

Frazier has been in the aviation industry for 33 years, working as crew chief, lead mechanic, line lead and maintenance supervisor. His time in aviation has included work on many aircraft including C141B C5A/B, DHC-7, RC-12, UH-60 M/K/R, 1900D, T-45 Goshawks, Thrush S2R-660 and AT-802i BPA and BAE-147 large air tankers. He has an A&P licence, as well as IA and FCC certifications.

Director of maintenance services Bryan Bell says: “I am excited to welcome Michael to the team. His experience working on King Airs and his leadership knowledge will help our team to expand their knowledge and help them to achieve great things in years to come.”

The company also congratulates Mike Stamm on his promotion to jet centre service supervisor. His journey in aviation began in the Marine Corp as a mechanic 16 years ago. Stamm has experience on piston aircraft and Enstrom helicopters, but most recently worked on Falcon and Gulfstream airframes.

“Mike was a key team member as a technician, a crew chief and now as the jet service supervisor,” adds Bell. “I know he will be a great leader because of his work ethic, the respect he has earned from the technicians on his team and his attention to detail.”
