Ruth Bushard - Mesinger Jet Sales

Ruth Bushard

Being in the aviation industry was always a dream of mine. As a young girl growing up in the Midwest, my family would pile into our camper and head off to visit different parts of the U.S. We visited the 48 contiguous states before I turned 18. In my early twenties, for a brief time, I worked as a flight attendant on commuter planes. I enjoyed the faster pace of getting around and all of the unique people I came in contact with, not to mention the incredible views from the sky.

I joined the Mesinger team in 2003 as an account manager. Before coming aboard, I was working in the real estate industry as a licensed Realtor. I find myself wearing many hats as an account manager. With a strong background in office management and customer service, I am a true “people person.” I love talking with our clients and thoroughly enjoy the intimate environment of working at Mesinger Jet Sales and being part of this exceptional brokerage firm. I’m generally the key person answering the phones and sending a smile your way! I support everyone in the office in all aspects of our transactions, from new listing through closing. I work on creating and maintaining our aircraft specifications. I coordinate necessary paperwork, title searches, tracking inspection/maintenance progress and sending updates to clients as to the activity level and marketing efforts of their aircraft listing. I also assist with advertising and media placement. I handle marketing materials and advertising in aviation publications and on major aviation websites. I update and maintain all aircraft listings on, as well as several aviation websites and the two multiple-listing services, and I generate online campaigns tailored for our clients’ needs.

When not at work, my passions include exploring this beautiful state that I live in whether it be hiking, biking or skiing – as long as it’s outdoors!
