As the Mesinger Jet Sales full-time Technical Director, Andy oversees the technical aspects of our aircraft sales and acquisition projects, ranging from managing pre-purchase evaluations to mission profile planning. The degree and pace of our industry’s technological advancement are breathtaking, which requires prudent effort to remain a step ahead. Andy’s inquisitive nature ensures that we are always asking the most appropriate technical questions, allowing our clients to make a well-informed decision.
Andy’s passion for aviation began at sixteen years old with his first flight. The “flying bug” bit hard, so four years later he graduated from Metropolitan State University of Denver with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Aviation Technology.
Spending nearly seven years as a professional pilot flying a wide variety of business jets, Andy gained valuable operational experience, including as Captain of a Falcon 2000. In addition to operational responsibilities, Andy worked closely with his director of maintenance to troubleshoot discrepancies and find solutions to minimize downtime and increase dispatch reliability. Andy is a proud member of the International Aircraft Dealers Association (IADA), NBAA’s Leadership Council, and the StandardAero Business Aviation Customer Advisory Board.
Outside of aviation, time spent in automotive and real estate franchising sales further enhanced Andy’s understanding of the financial and business decisions that our clients must evaluate in the course of an aircraft transaction.
With the Rocky Mountains at his doorstep, Andy enjoys spending time camping, hiking, biking, and just about anything Colorado has to offer.
