From the moment service manager JD Phillips personally answered the phone call from a frustrated, stressed pilot whose Beechcraft Sierra had left him stranded overnight in Addison, I knew I was dealing with a business and staff holding the highest ideals of service, integrity, and professionalism accompanied by an "old school" work ethic and pride in their craft.

From the moment service manager JD Phillips personally answered the phone call from a frustrated, stressed pilot whose Beechcraft Sierra had left him stranded overnight in Addison, I knew I was dealing with a business and staff holding the highest ideals of service, integrity, and professionalism accompanied by an "old school" work ethic and pride in their craft. As my Sierra was recovered from another FBO and serviced alongside far more expensive (and likely profitable) King Air and Pilatus aircraft, never once did I feel like I was any less of a priority or that my presence was any bother to the friendly, knowledgeable mechanics of Cutter Aviation.

JD Phillips himself took the time to offer valuable insights and perspectives on maintenance and repair specifically relevant to my aircraft, and in no time the Sierra was fully operational and I was embarking on my return flight home to Springdale, AR.

It is a refreshing experience to find such an emphasis on customer service and courtesy - especially for what I felt was an exceptionally reasonable price. I would not hesitate to ever visit Cutter Aviation in the future, and would enthusiastically encourage any pilot or owner to strongly consider Cutter Aviation for any aircraft service or maintenance needs.

KB, Andy, Chris and Kellie are the very best… Never take it anywhere but Cutter…

    Kris Brune
    Pilatus Technical Services Advisor TX
    Email

    Kris Brune is the Pilatus Technical Services Advisor for the state of Texas. In this role, he oversees work order implementation and customer support for Pilatus clients at Cutter Aviation’s FAA Part 145 Repair Station in Addison, Texas.

    Kris was born into an aviation-oriented family, where both his father and grandfather served in the US Navy, had their pilot’s license and owned several single-engine and twin-engine aircraft. Growing up with the love of aviation in the family, Kris knew he was destined to be in the aviation industry and wanted to be around aircraft for the rest of his life.

    Kris’ first job in aviation started out at Fort Worth Meacham Airport where during his high school summer vacations, he would be in charge of cleaning two Hawker 800’s and a Jet Stream. At that point, he knew he wanted to get more hands-on with the aircraft and help mechanics with general maintenance tasks.

    After graduating from high school Kris started working for Jet Works Aviation where he became a maintenance assistant. This job experience helped him realize the importance of getting his Airframe and Powerplant licenses, so he enrolled at Tarrant County College and attended classes at night while working during the day. After completing his certification, Kris became a full-time Aircraft Technician and Crew Chief a year after.

    In 2003 Jet Works became Jet Work Air Center and Kris took on new responsibilities as Program Manager for the Pilatus and Piaggio Maintenance Programs. 2013 Jet Works Air center was acquired by Greenpoint Aerospace and he was appointed as Program Supervisor.

    Having a love for aviation from an early age, and always looking for the best opportunities, Kris joined the Cutter Aviation team in August 2018.
