Ray has a 40 year career in aviation activities as a CMEI rated pilot, using a  number of certified aircraft in business pursuits, including  high performance singles and twins.  He has been a “hands on” owner/operator and brings a great appreciation for the utility and maintenance required for the safe and enjoyable use of aircraft for business and recreational purposes.  While now living in a region which is known for tremendous back country flying, he has expanded those interests to both enjoy those activities in tail wheel aircraft and be actively involved in the development of products to further expand the utility and performance of back country and recreational aircraft. 

MooseMods is a division of AAW, LLC dedicated to providing some meaningful LS3 engine options for performance and utility to the already robust Murhpy Moose and Super Rebel aircraft.

AAW, LLC continues to provide a wide range of aircraft services specializing in backcountry aircraft.  We also provide the LS3 Engine package through for other high performance aircraft applications.
