PLANO, Texas — Newly launched is Blue Sky Innovations, a consulting company that will assist GA business owners and investors around the world to expand into foreign markets.
Initial projects will focus on growth opportunities between the US, China and Brazil.
“Blue Sky Innovations was born to help build bridges and connect companies in the GA industry to other countries,” says President and CEO Tim Archer, a 40-year veteran of the general aviation industry.
The international team at Blue Sky Innovations collectively shares 67 years of industry leadership experience in international business development and company management.
The multilingual team spans four continents — North America, South America, Asia and Europe.
“Our multicultural team has a global mindset, yet we know how to act as locals when opening new markets,” says Executive Vice President Ana Fontes, a native of Brazil and an American citizen with 27 years of experience in international business.
Archer said he experienced for years first-hand the challenges companies faced when seeking to expand into new markets.
“I wanted to use my knowledge to provide specialized services that I knew companies needed to succeed crossing borders,” he said.
Clients include FBOs, aviation manufacturers, MROs, flight schools, executive airports, charter operators and more.
