Steve Ronniger

Get to Know Our Owner

Steve started flying in 1973, and has accumulated more than 11,000 hours in his career, earning positions as a flight instructor, aerial survey pilot, charter pilot, and corporate pilot.

In 1980, he became the chief pilot and director of operations for Salt Lake Beechcraft, and was appointed FAA 135 Check Airman on all Beechcraft: Bonanza, Baron, Duke, King Air C90, E90, F90, B100, and 200/B200. Over the next five years, the Beechcraft charter department became the largest such operation in Salt Lake City while under his guidance. Steve was also one of the first pilots to receive a type rating on the King Air 300.

During these years in his flying career, Steve developed a sense that the majority of aviation customers were not being given the level of service that he felt they deserved. With a change in management at Beechcraft Aircraft Corporation, he felt it was the right time to start a company that could provide the level of service he felt necessary, and could do so with integrity.

Maintenance Knowledge

Steve has been interested in and involved with aircraft maintenance since early in his career. He watched over maintenance professionals throughout his career, and learned much from these experiences. When he started Corporate Wings, Inc., he made it a priority to better control the quality of maintenance.

Later, he decided to concentrate on brokering, acquisitions, and consulting, closing the maintenance and management departments. Still, the maintenance knowledge he acquired over the years has proven valuable to the evaluation of aircraft. He now has an in-depth knowledge of systems, maintenance programs, service bulletins, airworthiness directives, and even interior and exterior refurbishment.

Steven's latest maintenance assignment was the management and oversight of the Challenger 604 in Munich, Germany. It included a 192-month inspection and a completely new interior, including the selection of interior materials, designs, and colors. The 192-month inspection included a landing gear overhaul and ADS-B installation, and the entire project was completed in two-and-a-half months.
