DALLAS, TX – Randy Stromski has joined Dallas-based King Aerospace Commercial Corporation (KACC) as director of quality assurance. From his base at the company’s facility in Ardmore, OK, Stromski oversees regulatory compliance, conducts AS9110C audits and updates repair station manuals. King Aerospace offers maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) and exterior paint for VIP and VVIP aircraft, specializing in the Boeing Business Jet (BBJ).
“Randy brings an unparalleled wealth of knowledge gained from his years with the FAA and manufacturers such as Bombardier,” says Jerry King, company founder and chairman. “Our customers will directly benefit from his deep familiarity with government requirements for VIP aircraft, the nuances of military aircraft and what goes into working on heavy maintenance lines for various large airplanes.”
King Aerospace routinely performs work for Boeing, Cessna, Bombardier and Gulfstream aircraft. Supporting both corporate jets and VVIP aircraft enables small fleet operators with both classes of aircraft to turn to King Aerospace as a high-quality, but value-priced, turnkey solution. The ability to both paint VVIP aircraft and provide interior refurbishment and maintenance give King Aerospace a competitive advantage. It’s the only privately owned company to offer this capability, and one of only five suppliers worldwide to serve this market niche.
“I’ve been interested in King Aerospace for years, but the timing was never right to join its team,” says Stromski, “I’m very happy to be part of this family-owned, employee and customer-oriented company. Its values align with mine, which includes going the extra mile to do things right.”
KACC also provides depot support services to King Aerospace Inc. (KAI), which has provided contractor logistics support (CLS) for the U.S. Armed Forces and government. KACC has been honored as a Boeing Supplier of the year for collaboration, and successfully completed the prestigious Boeing Mentor Protégé Program.
“Randy understands and embraces our no-excuses environment,” says President Jarid King. “He’s all about doing the right thing for the right reasons with the right attitude – even when no one is looking.”
Previously Stromski served as site manager for ACET Hawaii, where he supported C-40 (B737-700) aircraft and subsystems. He was the primary point of contact and interface with government program authorities and representatives. His wide-ranging career has included leadership positions with Viasat San Diego, Mokulele Airlines, Gogo, AAR Aircraft Services, Bombardier Aircraft Services and Premier Turbines. His years in the industry garnered solid, hands-on experience as an FAA principal airworthiness inspector, KC-135 aircraft inspector at Tinker Air Force Base, CRJ 200/700/900 heavy check maintenance supervisor for Bombardier Aerospace, lead technician for Garrett Aviation and aircraft mechanic for United Airlines.
“Randy’s deep expertise helps him lead by example,” says Jarid King. “He will protect and maintain our quality at the highest levels.”
