Richard Wuensche, who joined King Aerospace Commercial Corporation (KACC) as vice president of operations in September 2014, has been making plans for the company’s completion center in Ardmore, Oklahoma, USA. Wuensche brings 30 years of experience to KACC and plans to bring in more BBJs for paint and refurbishment work.
KACC has experience in cabin refurbishment, avionics, maintenance and exterior paint, on business aircraft ranging from light jets to large-cabin Bombardier and Gulfstream types. The company’s paint shop recently completed its first green BBJ exterior paint project and was recognized by Boeing Business Jets. KACC is now actively courting owners and operators of BBJs for refurbishment and avionics work, in addition to paint.
Wuensche’s experience includes having served as director of operations at Association Air Center, where he oversaw VVIP completions, including work on head-of-state BBJ 747-8 and BBJ 787 aircraft, as well as privately owned ACJ330s. Prior to that position, he was avionics manager at Gore Design Completion (now GDC Technics).
A 12-year US Navy veteran, Wuensche also has extensive airframe experience on five executive BBJ models and four Airbus models, as well as numerous other aircraft from eight business jet manufacturers.
“The way to get there is to keep doing what we are known for – complex paint jobs – and build a name in other areas, including avionics and refurbishments,” said Wuensche.
“We have a proven track record in performing these services, but because of our boutique approach of only taking on a few projects at a time, we don’t have the level of name recognition as others. My goal is to help change that.”
