Soloy Aviation Solutions announces the appointment of James H.L. Cowan as President and Chief Executive Officer.

James Cowan brings an extensive business background, a strong engineering track record, and a passion for aviation to his new leadership role.

A Mechanical Engineering Technology graduate from Purdue University, Mr. Cowan has spent his career in the aviation industry. He was the Quality Assurance Manager for Dylan Aerospace, a Tier 1 supplier to the Boeing Airplane Company, before becoming an Aviation Client Executive for Caledonian Insurance Group, a global leader in aviation insurance and risk management services based in Mercer Island, Washington.

When asked for comment, the Managing Partner of Soloy Aviation Solutions stated, “We knew Joe Soloy for decades and considered him a brilliant engineer and friend. After his passing we took over the company from his family with the promise to continue Soloy’s innovation and quality legacy. That was Joe’s wish. James Cowan brings engineering and manufacturing knowledge, energy and business savvy to Soloy. He is the right executive to manage Soloy. We are very pleased and fortunate to have James leading our company.”

James Cowan sees clear business opportunity ahead for Soloy. “As an aviation pioneer in turbine engine conversions of both fixed and rotor winged aircraft, Soloy is a name and brand that is extremely well respected but not entirely well known,” says Mr. Cowan. “Aside from ensuring our customers are being well served, my immediate priority is to put the spotlight on Soloy around the world and give it the attention it deserves. Our 750 turbine powered helicopter and fixed wing aircraft conversions are actively flying in 35 countries. And hardworking operators flying our line of STC’d turbine helicopter conversions are utilizing them because of their incredible reliability and efficiency. Soloy aircraft are considered the pinnacle and I want to make sure everyone knows it and can have access to them.”

James Cowan and his wife Jamie are residents of Newcastle, Washington, a suburb of Seattle.
