Yesterday - William D. Ketcham (Bill) retired from the U.S. Navy with a distinguished naval
aviation career as an A&P mechanic, shop supervisor, and C130 and P3 flight engineer.  His
broad experience in multi-engine turbo-prop and turbofan aircraft included planned and
unplanned maintenance.  He was assigned to 7 different forward deployed squadrons aboard
two different aircraft carriers over his 20-year career.

Aviation Services, is celebrating his 8th year in business with aircraft maintenance now located

Bill personally insures the work is done right and his customers are satisfied.  Bill's business
awards include being named New York State Small Business Development Center "Veteran
Entrepreneur of the Year" and Broome County "Business Success Story of the Year."  From his
modern, well-equipped hangar facility he serves scheduled airlines (aircraft & ground support
equipment), business aircraft, and general aviation aircraft.  He provides "on-call" maintenance
