Carlyle Promoted to ACI Jet MRO Repair Station Manager; Plus Two New Project Managers Announced

California-based business jet maintenance company, ACI Jet MRO, announced Jonathan Carlyle’s advancement to repair station manager. The move accompanies two appointments to project manager–Michael Johnson, with nearly two decades at a Textron Aviation Service Center, and Joe Borchers, formerly an ACI Jet MRO Repair Station team lead and technician. The company is actively recruiting for additional team leads, avionics technicians, interior and completions specialists, QC inspectors, and A&P technicians within its FAA Part 145 Repair Station.

Jonathan Carlyle was promotion to repair station manage and in this role he will lead the overall operations of the facility and its maintenance staff members, including day-to-day operations, maintenance scheduling, staffing, and strategic planning for scheduled maintenance.

When asked about Carlyle’s promotion, ACI Jet’s senior vice president of aircraft maintenance, David Jensen, remarked, “Jonathan has a very strong technical background having worked on the shop floor and the MRT team at both Textron and Bombardier facilities. He held just about every role from a new A&P to Team Lead, Project Manager, and Part 145 DOM. It’s rare to find such strong technical talent with equally strong communication, customer focus, and leadership skills. Jonathan understands the complexities involved in running a high-quality repair station with the highest level of service and a positive culture.” Jensen added that promoting from within whenever possible is a priority for his maintenance organization. “Our upper-level managers have all been promoted from within the organization. Each can relate to their employees as they once walked in their shoes.”

In their new roles as project managers, Johnson and Borchers are the single points of contact for customers of the repair station during their maintenance visits. They will monitor their projects according to schedule, cost efficiency and the highest level of maintenance excellence. All team leads report directly to project managers, giving them up to date knowledge of each aircraft currently under maintenance.
