Aviation maintenance expert Mick Baumann has been named Director of Maintenance for Guardian Jet LLC (guardianjet.com), the Guilford-Connecticut-based business aviation consulting and brokerage firm.
In his new role, Baumann will support Guardian Jet’s sales, acquisition and consulting team by lending it his vast technical aircraft experience. He will also play a critical, client-facing role overseeing the myriad technical aspects of aircraft transactions for Guardian Jet’s client base.
Baumann brings more than a decade of aviation maintenance experience to his new role with Guardian Jet. As a longtime avionics technician and airframe and powerplant mechanic, he has handled maintenance for both business aviation aircraft as well as those in general aviation. His airframe experience is particularly notable, including his work on Global XRS, 5000, 6000, Challenger 604, 605, 300, 350, Citation Excel, Falcon 2000EX and Falcon 7X aircraft.
Prior to joining Guardian Jet, Baumann served as an avionics technician for UTFlight, the corporate flight department for United Technologies in Hartford, Connecticut. Previously, he worked for the Bombardier Hartford Service Center as a member of its aircraft on ground (AOG) team.
Don Dwyer, Managing Partner of Guardian Jet, said he is extremely pleased to welcome Baumann to the Guardian Jet Team. “To have a director of maintenance on the team is just one more example of the quality we strive to bring to our company and our clients. Mick’s stellar aircraft maintenance experience gives us the ability to understand all the technical aspects of a client’s airplane—from avionics to the connectivity in the back of the airplane. Mick’s degree of technical knowledge and professionalism really beefs up our bench strength at Guardian Jet.”
Baumann is a graduate of the Pennsylvania College of Technology, where he received a BS in Aviation Maintenance Technology. He also holds an Airframe and Powerplant (A&P) certificate from the Federal Aviation Administration, and he has received maintenance and avionics training for several aircraft models. Additionally, Baumann has a FCC General Radio Telephone Operators License and a Satcom Direct AeroIT certification.
