Our Gulfstream Team - Brody McKenna

We're the Pulse of Your Gulfstream.

Brody McKenna is our Director of MRO Operations. In his previous role with Western as Avionics Manager, he was responsible for day-to-day installations and operations of installations, troubleshooting, scheduled and unscheduled maintenance and electrical engineering.

Brody brings eight years of Gulfstream-specific experience to our team between his time with the OEM and Western Aircraft. His intimate knowledge of the airframe comes from his work supporting AOG aircraft; he worked as a tech lead, and was part of the tech specialist group where he was responsible for liaising between the engineering department and the technicians on the floor. Brody also served as the primary qualified trainer for the Data Concentration Network system on the G500/G600 aircraft and worked on those airframes both on the service side as well as the completions side. In fact, he’s extremely familiar with Gulfstream aircraft ranging from the G150 to G500/G600/G650 series aircraft. 

Hey Brody, what do you enjoy most about working at Western Aircraft?

“Definitely the people! The people are what makes it worth it. The job is not always easy, but when you have a good team, it’s important to get their buy-in, and it’s important to make sure that they know you have their back,” said Brody.  
Brody enjoys more than just the company of his team. His role is also customer-facing, and he doesn’t take the responsibility lightly. He appreciates that customers want to be part of what’s happening with their aircraft.
“Our customers can come to talk to the lead; they can chat with the guy on the floor who’s actually doing the avionics work. They don’t have to feel like they’re in the dark. We love operating in the right balance and level of transparency where the customer knows what’s going on, feels comfortable asking questions, and we’re still able to do our best work,” he added. 

Let’s talk about beautiful Boise.

Brody lives in Meridian, a suburb of Boise. His favorite thing about living here is its central location to… the middle of nowhere. Even though the charming, gentle hustle and bustle of Boise is an attraction on its own, Brody appreciates the stillness of nature.

Want to take a little bit of a trip and get away from everyone and everything to clear your head? There are a lot of beautiful places to do that, whether you’re going up in the mountains, or taking the highway to Sun Valley. It’s easy to get to a place where you feel like you’re the only person around… a feeling that never came easily in Brody’s 11 years in the crowded state of California. 

Boise itself is growing! “We’re getting a lot of modern stores and modern spaces, so there’s a little bit of everything. Most customers don’t know what’s truly here, so when they get to spend some time while we have their aircraft, they’re pleasantly surprised,” said Brody.

Why else would someone choose Western Aircraft?

Our capabilities are extensive, our price point is competitive, and our customer service is a huge focus. Brody’s team is always learning about the latest technology and works alongside customers to make sure their avionics package works for their specific needs.
“We’re not stuck in our ways; we’re going to work with you on how we can get the job accomplished in a way that’s best for you and best for us,” added Brody. 
When Gulfstream owners and operators are looking for an MRO partner, they need to know what we have to offer. And it comes down to this: At Western Aircraft we have people who are incredibly experienced working with Gulfstream aircraft, and who are going to make sure your job gets done right
