AeroComputers Names Mikael Via EVP, COO

Will Lead Marketing, Sales, R&D, Other Efforts

Airborne special mission systems company AeroComputers has hired former Glasair Aviation president and CEO  Mikael Via to fill the newly created position of Executive Vice President, Chief Operating Officer. Effective immediately, Via will assume responsibility for marketing/sales, R&D, engineering, operations and customer service.

The company provides mission management systems that integrate high-precision GPS-based moving maps, EO/IR sensor command, video processing and recording, and mission telemetry collection and transmission. “Mikael has a proven track record of creating customer-focused and technically innovative businesses that bring value to customers, employees, and shareholders alike,” said Mark Gassaway, President and CEO. “We are pleased to be able to recruit Mikael to our company.”

Via brings to AeroComputers years of experience leading high-performing, entrepreneurial teams in launching and growing innovative businesses.  Under his most recent leadership at Glasair Aviation, the company was brought out of bankruptcy, formed a unified team of employees, consolidated operations, designed and developed new aircraft, and introduced the revolutionary "Two Weeks To Taxi" program, all of which propelled Glasair to become a market leader in the aviation industry. 

"I am incredibly energized to help lead AeroComputers to its next phase of innovation, by working with the AeroComputers team and our customers to bring next generation products to market”, said Via.

An active pilot with a lifelong passion for aviation, Via has extensive hands-on experience with aircraft manufacturing, construction and assembly.  He has built two experimental aircraft and currently owns and flies a Glasair and a Turbo-Charged GA single-engine aircraft.
