Will Serve As Director, Special Mission USA
John Mactaggart, president and CEO of Field Aviation has
appointed Tobin Shackelford to the position of Director of Special
Mission USA, effective April 11, 2011.
Based in Seattle, WA, Shackelford will be responsible for
developing and implementing business strategies that will increase
the scope of Field Aviation's aircraft modification and conversion
business; his primary focus will be governmental business within
the United States. He will report directly to Mactaggart at Field
Aviation's US head office in Cincinnati, OH.
Shackelford is particularly well suited for his new role with
Field Aviation. He is a commercial pilot who has had extensive
experience in all facets of aircraft management and operations; he
has a strong background in military intelligence, and has
established relationships with aircraft manufacturers, systems and
sensor suppliers, as well as US Federal and State Government
agencies. He joins Field Aviation from Raisbeck Engineering where
he held the position of Director of Special Mission Sales.
Mactaggart says, "We are delighted to have someone with Tobin's
credentials and experience join us. He will add immeasurably to our
capabilities and will be an integral part of Field Aviation's
expanded effort to increase its presence in this very competitive
market segment within the United States."
