Bio of Martin (Marty) J. Sisk IV – VP of Operations

Marty first took an interest in aviation while visiting the airport in the small town of Addison, TX, while watching his father take off on routine flights in the Collins Radio owned and operated G1. Thus, the aviation seed was planted.

In 1987 he decided to move from the oil & construction industry and set his sights and mechanical skills in the direction of becoming an A&P. He began his formal aviation training at Texas Aero where he earned his FAA Airframe & Power Plant license in 1988. Shortly afterwards, he landed his first A&P position with Chaparral Aviation, an independent Beech service center in Addison, TX. As anyone who understands the dynamics of general aviation business, company’s names change with new business strategies. In 1990 Chaparral’s name changed to Hedrick Beechcraft and later Raytheon Aircraft Services.  Marty was promoted to Lead Mechanic to support the additional business venture of the Beechcraft Airline Refurbishment Department. In 1997, he was promoted to Shop Supervisor. He left Raytheon Aircraft Services in May 2002.

Marty continued his aviation venture with Cutter Aviation. Cutter was new to the north Texas aviation market and was in search of a Director of Maintenance that could fill the role and carry the responsibility as their D.O.M.  Cutter’s Dallas facility was a New Piper Service Center and within a few months they picked up the Socata TBM Service Center. In late 2004 Raytheon closed its retail/warranty operation at Love Field and moved it to Cutter. Marty to manage three factory service centers for 9+ years.

Those understanding General Aviation know, it’s all about personal relationships. Marty had the honor of being introduced to Mr. Donald McSwain,  who is an innovating entrepreneur, pilot, and professional drag racer,  to name a few. Mr. McSwain hired Marty to work with him to achieve his vision in opening a General Aviation Sales and Service business at the Mesquite Airport. Through the collective efforts of Mr. McSwain, Marty Sisk, and Cynthia Godfrey (Mesquite Airport Director) and the unanimous approval from the Mesquite City Council, full renovation of the second largest hangar on the field began in April 2014.  The airport in Mesquite recently built a state of the art control tower similar to the one In McKinney.
Now with the visionary focus of Mr. Donny McSwain, the General Aviation business is in full swing and compliments the airport by extending services and maintenance to both private and corporate jets and turbo prop owners.

Marty enjoys his family, friends and has a passion for life which also follows through in his aviation career.


 

 Bio of Mark Holloway -Chief Inspector, A& P/IA

As a young man I spent five years in the United States Army where I attained the rank of Sergeant as a Self propelled field artillery mechanic. Upon exiting the Army I attended East Texas State University, now known as Texas A & M Commerce. Here I met an individual who was taking flying lessons, he took me on a Christmas light sight seeing tour and I was hooked on flying.

I started pursuing my pilots license and became a private pilot where my fascination with aviation grew. I was afforded the opportunity to use my G.I. Bill to further my education, I left Texas and moved to Denver to attend Colorado Aero Tech. There I graduated with an Associates of Occupational Studies, Airframe and Powerplant Maintenance degree.

I returned to Texas to begin my aviation maintenance career. I held various A & P positions at a variety of companies learning to hone my craft. I became shop foreman in a thriving FAR Part 135 commercial aviation operation. When I was eligible I began studying and tested for my Inspection Authorization Certification.

A Director of Maintenance position soon followed and I was exposed to the business side of aircraft maintenance. Here I grew my skills as a customer service representative, parts person and Inspector. The many years I have spent in the aviation industry have allowed me to work on a wide variety of aircraft and work with an abundance of individuals and garnered a vast array of knowledge.

This knowledge base has brought me here to Mesquite Aircraft Sales and Service, where I am working as the chief inspector, A&P/ IA. Mesquite Aircraft Sales and Service maintains a wide array of aircraft and provides a multitude of services for the King Air series, Dahr-Socata TBM aircraft as well as most general aviation aircraft.
