Kris Brune - Technical Services Advisor - Cutter Aviation Addison (ADS)

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.
