There are a relatively small number of individuals in the business aviation community that have transformed themselves from the cockpit to the boardroom successfully. Daniel Lucey is one of those people, having crafted his aviation career around three basic principles: people, planning and process. With more than twenty years of industry experience, Dan's efforts focus on profitable business strategies and solid business fundamentals for long-term growth while ensuring safety and service quality remains at the highest levels in the industry. In addition to his role as President, he also is a member of the FlightWorks board of directors. Dan has a career path that is rare among aviation leaders. He spent a decade with NetJets, garnering five type ratings and 11,000 hours of accident and incident free flight time. His career at NetJets culminated with his assignment to Chief Pilot at the age of 33, where he was responsible for over 2,000 pilots and 400 aircraft. In addition, Dan created the aircraft management division for Flight Options, where he served as the General Manager of Aircraft Management Programs. Dan's education includes a B.S. degree in Aviation Management and Flight Technology with honors from the Florida Institute of Technology. In addition, he earned his MBA from Franklin University and was elected a Leadership Scholar as the top student in his class. He is also an active business aviation advocate, serving on several board of directors, participating in numerous aviation related associations and serving as an FAA ARC committee member.

With over thirty years of accounting experience, Sharon has built her career on understanding numbers and managing corporate assets. Her extensive experience in analyzing data and tracking trends helps her to develop financial strategies to build cash and corporate equity while minimizing controllable expenses and debt. As FlightWorks Controller, Sharon and the accounting team play a vital role in managing aircraft owners’ assets. Together with other department leaders (CEO, Maintenance, Flight Operations, Charter Sales, Human Resources) an annual budget specific to each aircraft is developed. The aircraft owner can then know what to expect for the coming year and can budget accordingly.

Nick Hutchinson began his career with FlightWorks as a Charter Sales Representative in July 2013. He learned firsthand what it took to make the sales process run smoothly. Nick is a team player that has risen through the organization from Charter Sales Representative to Charter Sales Manager and to his current role as Vice President. During his time with FlightWorks, Nick has refined the sales process and built a successful charter sales team that focuses on the charter goals of its aircraft owners.

Josh Cooper is a FAA Certified A&P Mechanic with an Inspection Authorization rating. He has more than 13 years of maintenance experience in the aviation industry. Before joining FlightWorks in 2012, Josh worked for seven years with a diverse range of organizations including US Airways and Delta Air Lines. As a designated Manager on Duty at Delta, Josh was responsible for regulation compliance, supervising maintenance and ensuring that it was accurately and efficiently completed. Josh’s diverse background in Quality Assurance, Maintenance Control and as a Maintenance Technician provided a strong foundation for his success as Director of Maintenance.

During Jeff McMullen’s twenty year aviation career, he has worked in both commercial and private aviation. His job experiences have helped him to understand all aspects associated with aviation trip planning. In 2015, Jeff became FlightWorks' Operations Manager, where he currently manages the Dispatch team and oversees all daily and planned flight operations. He and his team work directly with the Client Services and Charter Services teams to ensure that each flight is planned, dispatched and flown in such a way as to provide a once-in-a-lifetime travel experience for every client.

As Manager of the Quality Control Department, Tara Rice ensures the airworthiness and reliability of all aircraft on the company fleet. She is a voting member and chairperson of the Continuing Analysis Surveillance System (“CASS”) Board. CASS provides FlightWorks with an open forum to periodically review the performance and effectiveness of the FlightWorks maintenance programs. Since joining FlightWorks in 2013, Tara has attended the Argus Aviation Lead Auditor Training and continues to educate herself on maintenance technology.
