In preparation of ramping up their Challenger maintenance program at Manchester-Boston Regional Airport (MHT) in Londonderry, NH, Pro Star Aviation proudly welcomes new hire, Matt Sargent to their ranks. Matt, both eager and excited to start his journey with Pro Star, brings nearly thirty (30) years of dedicated corporate aviation maintenance experience with him.
According to Pro Star Aviation’s Director of Maintenance, Chris Mancini, “I’ve known Matt for many years and have great respect for his knowledge and workmanship. Hiring Matt is going to be a fantastic step forward for Pro Star Aviation and our ability to perform work on all models of Challenger aircraft.”
Well known throughout the Bombardier network for his extensive knowledge of the Challenger series aircraft, Matt began his career at that company’s Hartford facility when it was known as the Canadair Challenger Service Center. His expertise with the Challenger airframe is both deep and wide; multiple years as an engine technician, airframe lead technician, capped off by sixteen years as structural lead technician supervising a crew of fourteen.
Entrusted with some of the Series’ largest-ever work packages, Matt has been instrumental in the wing demate and remate of several Challenger aircraft, complete overhaul of a Challenger 601, and removal and installation of Challenger 604 nose sections, among others. His work consisted of not only carrying out the physical work, but also drafting up work packages, quoting the job, and seeing it through to completion - always with an eye towards quality and customer service. One Senior Manager of Maintenance describes Matt as, “a man of his word and his commitment is golden.”
A proud veteran of the United States Navy and proud New Hampshire native, Matt will reside in Wolfeboro with his wife, daughter, and two rescue dogs. For Matt, getting the chance to return home to the Granite State and help grow the Challenger program at Pro Star, is a dream come true.
