Texas Gyro Team

Kelley Van Haitsma

President and Accountable Manager

Experience: 39 years


Founder of TexasGYRO in 2002, Kelley entered the avionics industry in 1985 as a FAA Repair Station bench repair technician before moving to Lockheed Martin in 1989 as an RF Engineer on the F-16 Falcon  aircraft. Kelley was one of the two lead bench technicians for TexasGYRO’s effort in weather radar system repair and developed a keen sense of troubleshooting for a quicker turn on repair, then he was the spearhead in directing the focus to flightline on-wing work. Kelley is the key engineer on most all of our contract work. He holds a pilot’s license with type ratings on King Air, IAI 1124, Citation 50 and Falcon 50 and 900. His knowledge as a repairman and pilot gives TexasGYRO a great advantage in recognizing the root cause of avionics failures and the means to integrate full retrofits in the classic aircraft fleets.

Kevin’s skill in troubleshooting is one of our best resources, and his long-time experience with retrofits to older turbine aircraft gives our customers a benefit of trust and that it’s done right the first time. Most of our new customers come from aircraft he has managed mods for that are out in the fleet being seen by other owners who come to us for the process that he orchestrates.
