Before Piedmont Airlines, Ryan was a Ramp Lead/Trainer for JetStream in Wilmington, NC from 2007-2010 and a Supervisor/Fueler for Air Wilmington in Wilmington, NC from 2004-2007. Ryan said that while fueling in Wilmington, he checked with us to see if we had any open positions which we did. We offered him a part time position that he worked while still keeping his full time position with Air Wilmington. He fell in love with the industry and began working with JetStream full time in 2007 through 2010. We are very happy to have Ryan back with us and look forward to him starting on January 6th.
