AEA Rings in Week With Member/Associate of the Year

Bruce Grammon and Mid-Continent Avionics Snag Popular Vote

The annual Aircraft Electronics Association International Convention & Trade Show will open with recognition for its member of the year, commemorating Bruce Grammon.

In conjunction with Grammon's snag of the lion's share of the votes, corporate member Mid-Continent Instruments and Avionics got its own recognition as the AEA Associate Member of the Year. Bruce Grammon joined the same in 1990, working his way up as an avionics lab technician, lab manager, right on up to his current post as senior field service engineer. He first came through the AEA's doors 3 years after joining the industry, and now stands as one of the old salts with experience at events around the world. Working with the company, he often appears in educational media to troubleshoot and explain the intricacies of avionics to customers and shoppers.

“I love learning, helping others, and I really love the people I work with,” he said. “Our customers and my co-workers have become like my family. When I joined Mid-Continent, I had the opportunity to work for John Winter and Bill Barnes. They were my mentors and, at such an early stage in my career, I was able to tap into a wealth of knowledge. They are a big part of the reason I have stayed in the industry for so long.”

Mid-Continent Instruments and Avionics has been in the biz since 1964, when it began as a small repair station in Wichita. It grew, as any quality op does, to the point of selling off operations in 1980, when it began an expansion phase under the Winter family. It now employs more than 200 between its California and Kansas locations, offering overhaul, repair, and manufacture of a variety of aeronautical parts, mods, and widgets.
