Jason Miller joins Sierra's management team as President


Jason Miller, President - Sierra Industries Ltd.
UVALDE, TX – February 17, 2014 – SkyWay Group founder and CEO Mark Huffstutler is proud to announce that aviation veteran Jason Miller has joined Sierra Industries, Ltd. to serve in the capacity of President. Mr. Miller assumed the newly created position on January 20, 2014. Jason is a licensed Commercial Pilot, holding Multi-Engine and Instrument ratings.
Mr. Miller will lead Sierra Industries’ growing aircraft MRO (Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul) organization. His proven leadership skills and intimate knowledge of the aviation business, spanning disciplines from strategic planning to maintenance support to financial management, will make a significant contribution to Sierra’s capabilities.

A graduate of the U. S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Miller spent a decade serving in the U. S. Marine Corps, achieving the rank of Major and earning numerous commendations and medals. He led and flew more than 70 air combat missions in Operation Iraqi Freedom, earning six Air Medals in the process. He also gained extensive leadership experience in planning, logistics and aircraft maintenance, planning some 700 missions and developing key improvements in operational management and maintenance, inspection and quality training.

Following his USMC service, Mr. Miller was employed by StandardAero as Finance Manager. In that role, he spearheaded significant improvements in the company’s gross margin, budgetary process and forecasting, analysis and reporting tools. During his tenure, he also earned an M.B.A. from Rice University in Houston, Texas.

In 2009, Jason became Vice President/General Manager of StandardAero’s Houston business unit, supervising a workforce of 100 employees. While in this position, he developed and implemented numerous strategic initiatives that resulted in substantial improvements in overall revenue, customer and employee satisfaction.

SkyWay Group CEO Mark Huffstutler commented, “I am excited to add Jason and his experience to the Senior Leadership Team at the SkyWay Group. I have tasked Jason with growth of Sierra’s MRO business, expansion of our San Antonio operations and the integration of new and exciting products to the Sierra offerings. I see our segment of the industry, corporate business jets, at the leading edge of a growth period in which MRO and modifications will be active. Jason’s guidance as we grow will be welcomed.”

Sierra Industries welcomes Patrick Carter to the Sales Team


The Sales and Support staff at Sierra Industries is pleased to announce the arrival of aviation veteran Patrick Carter. Most recently employed with Rocket Engineering, an aftermarket turboprop conversion firm, Mr. Carter brings to his new role a wealth of experience in certifying and marketing high-value aircraft performance modifications.

While pursuing a successful career in telecommunications sales and ownership of an audio/video manufacturing and distribution company, Patrick acquired his private pilot certificate and his interest in aviation quickly grew. In 2001, he moved from the audio/video industry into a full-time aviation career with his employment as Chief Operations Manager for American Aviation. After acquiring valuable experience in Part 135 charter/cargo operations, aircraft sales and FBO management, Patrick moved to Rocket Engineering Corporation in 2003.

In addition to his Private Pilot’s Certificate / SEL rating, Patrick has acquired flight experience in multiple single and multi-engine aircraft, among them the PA46, B36TC/T and B60/T. Mr. Carter‘s proficiency in numerous computer applications and programming is valuable as well.

Mr. Carter is a welcome addition to Sierra Industries’ growing sales and customer support organization. His knowledge of the aircraft modification and certification process, his experience in multiple facets of private aviation - including MRO, FBO and Part 135 Charter management - and many years of marketing, customer support and business management experience will contribute to Sierra’s increasing capabilities. In particular, his hard-won insights into the high-end turboprop marketplace will help us better market and manage our customers who are making their transition from turboprop aircraft into light jets.

Paul Wood, Sierra’s Director of Sales and Support remarks, “We are thrilled that Patrick has joined our growing team at Sierra Industries. His broad MRO management background and turbine aircraft modification experience make him an invaluable asset. We look forward to a long and fruitful relationship as we continue to enhance Sierra’s capabilities and expand our customer base in the years ahead.”
