Premier Jet Center (PJC), an FBO and maintenance and refurbishment specialist at Flying Cloud airport in Eden Prairie, Minnesota, has promoted Andrew Ohnstad to director of maintenance, overseeing the maintenance, paint and interior departments. With experience spanning more than 20 years in aviation, including eight years at PJC, Ohnstad has experience in flying, fuelling and fixing aircraft, bringing a unique blend of knowledge and skill to his new role.

Ohnstad joined PJC in May 2016 where he served as both parts manager and A&P mechanic. His journey into aviation had commenced in 2004 when he achieved his private and instrument ratings at sister company, Fargo Jet Center in North Dakota. Outside of his professional endeavours, he is currently building his own RV7 aircraft.

As director of maintenance, Ohnstad assumes responsibility for leading a safe and efficient maintenance shop. With a strong team of leaders already in place, he will focus on fostering customer relationships and enhancing training and development opportunities for technicians.

"Andrew has diverse experience that will bring a fresh perspective to this leadership role," says general manager Michael Lawrence. "I'm confident in his ability to provide great service and excellent communication to our clients and leverage his relationships and resources to continue upon the growth of our maintenance department."
