The Baker Aviation Services Group will focus on managing current strategic partnerships, contractual management, and compliance, as well as manage HOT-STOP ‘L’ fire containment kit sales and parts sales, while developing new relationships for Baker as dealers and distributors.

Goyco previously served as the President and COO for Baker’s Aviation Maintenance entity, where he led the business activities since its infancy in 2012. While working to expand the FAA Part 145 repair station at Addison Airport, Goyco quickly grew the business by adding manufacturer repair capabilities and expanding into three maintenance hangars. Goyco was also instrumental in the upgraded tarmac and taxiway to accommodate larger business jets into the Baker maintenance facility, as part of an Addison Airport renewal plan.

Recently, the Baker Aviation charter, management, and maintenance businesses announced the centralization of their operations in Fort Worth as part of a master plan. Located at the east side of the KFTW airport, the new Baker Aviation 66,000 square foot complex, currently under construction, will include two state of the art hangars, both with 28-foot-high hangar doors to accommodate the largest business aircraft flying today.

Mr. W. Stanley Baker, Jr., founder of Baker Aviation and prominent Fort Worth business owner, commented, “Ray’s 30-year tenure in the industry and his proven ability to drive an effective business plan, past and present, has earned him the opportunity to drive our newest business group. We created this entity to capture and manage new opportunities, and I am confident that Ray will continue to help us grow the Baker business as we take this next step in our Fort Worth expansion plan,” added Mr. Baker.

“I am proud of what we accomplished over the last seven years with the Baker maintenance business and anticipate that my new leadership role will prove to be both challenging and extremely rewarding,” stated Ray Goyco, Jr., CEO of Baker Aviation Services Group, LLC. “There are countless relationships and bonds that I have forged over the years with many business aviation professionals in this industry, and I look forward to working with them in my new role to advance our mutual success. My appreciation goes out to Mr. Baker and family for their encouragement and support as we continue to build and expand the Baker aviation business brand.”

As CEO for Baker Aviation Services Group, Ray Goyco will also assist in all aspects of Baker Aviation as a direct consultant to the ownership and its divisions. Goyco’s offices and contact information will remain the same, located in the Atlantic Aviation FBO at the Addison Airport.
