“The difference between an average pilot and a good pilot is not his knowledge of airmanship, but his application of it.”

Grant joined the Momentum team in 2019 and immediately made great improvements to overall company operations and organization. Grant’s career in flight operations, maintenance, and business growth have proven to be a valuable asset towards the accomplishment of Momentum’s strategic goals. His role in the company spans the entire operation, from providing practical engineering knowledge to critical business operations and customer relations.

Grant’s aviation career began early in life, highlighted by extensive military service for our country. Grant’s roles in the military included Maintenance and Crew Chief positions on several models of aircraft and flight crew roles on C-9 and C-20G aircraft.

He has extensive experience performing heavy aircraft maintenance and rebuilding of complete airframes and engines. Grant’s technical capability is complemented directly by a keen business sense and entrepreneurial spirit.

“We were very excited to have Grant join our team,” said Kyle Taylor, Chief Engineer. “One of our strengths at Momentum is understanding projects from start to finish. Grant has a clear understanding of what value means to our customers and he peppers our engineering projects with practical wisdom, all the while keeping in mind the endgame and constantly improving our organization.
