March 19, 2014 – Addison, Texas – Baker Aviation, a full service aircraft maintenance, management and charter company in North Texas, has announced that Anthony “Tony” Molina has been appointed to Director of Maintenance and Edwin “Eddie” Fincher is now the Senior Maintenance Manager / Technical Advisor.
As an avionics specialist and veteran of the US Marine Corp, Tony has deep roots in the business aviation maintenance community. Starting his career at Million Air several years ago, Tony went on to ElectroSonics (acquired by GE Aviation in 1999) where he worked his way up to completing advanced avionics installations. Later, Tony moved to Duncan Aviation as an avionics technician and gained additional experience in cabin management systems, service work and troubleshooting. Tony acquired his A&P license and began working on his Electrical Engineering degree while honing his skills as the avionics supervisor for Hunt Oil’s two corporate jets. Most recently, Tony worked independently, providing on-demand maintenance and avionics services for the industry.
Eddie Fincher’s exceptional 40+ year career has included tenures with KC Aviation, Duncan Aviation, and Bombardier. Before working in the aircraft maintenance industry, Eddie served in the U.S. Army in Vietnam as a door gunner. He has been recognized as a Master Technician from Bombardier, received the Golden Wrench award while at KC Aviation and has served on the Challenger Advisory Board. As an aircraft engine maintenance expert and industry-wide recognized Bombardier Challenger specialist, Eddie is often referred to as “Fast Eddie” because of the speed and level of energy he will expend to get a job done quickly. Prior to joining Baker Aviation, Eddie was a technician for Aeromech with Joe Wehrle, the recently named Director of Aviation at Baker Aviation.
“We welcome Tony to Baker Aviation. As long time industry friends and a fellow military veteran, I know that Tony adds another strong pillar to our Baker management team as we continue to build on our foundation as the leading maintenance and repair facility in North Texas,” stated Ray Goyco, Jr., President and COO for Baker Aviation. “Eddie is an industry legend and will help us exceed our goals in his new supervisory role. As our 2014 growth plans unfold, the strength and depth of our maintenance team now is unrivaled.
