Mesa Airlines has promoted Jeffrey Domrese, previously director of engineering and planning, to the position of vice-president of maintenance and engineering.
Domrese joined Mesa in January 2014 to develop the maintenance programme for the Embraer 175 and to serve as the company’s FAA interface for successful certification of the aircraft. Mesa began operating the E175 for United Express in June 2014, and now has 30 aircraft in its E175 fleet.
“Jeff’s extensive knowledge, industry experience and respect within the maintenance and regulatory communities made him an excellent choice for this important position,” explained chairman and CEO Jonathan Ornstein. “In his time at Mesa, Jeff has played a significant role and done an outstanding job with every responsibility he has taken on. We are very pleased he will oversee Mesa’s maintenance programme and will build on the company’s strong tradition of maintenance and operational excellence.”
The company’s maintenance and engineering team has been a regular recipient of FAA Diamond Awards for Excellence.
