Since 1984 Mike Williams has enhanced the safety of commercial and military aircraft through innovative technologies. In South Florida, Mike founded Jetaire Flight Systems, a manufacturer of high-reliability electronic hardware and systems. In 1998, he moved the company to Atlanta to be closer to family and establish a closer working relationship with the FAA regional office.
Mike said, “Over the years we’ve progressed as an organization. We started out in product development, then established the ability to design and manufacture our prototypes in-house. Having full production capabilities allows turnkey and cost-efficient services for our customers.” He continued, “We designed and manufactured a smoke detection and fire suppression system for large passenger aircraft that is less expensive and can be manufactured in half the time of other products.”
For Mike, aviation has always been a passion and he is passing his love of airplanes onto his family. He said, “My two daughters now work for Jetaire and in my free time I take my grandson on small plane rides out of our local airports.”
