Best Aircraft Maintenance Airplane Maintenance Technician Ryan Potts
Hi, I’m Ryan Potts. My interest in aviation sparked as a kid when I built the Revell/Monogram 1/48 P-38 kit with my dad. From there on my interest only grew, and I especially developed a love for warbirds. While in high school I took flight lessons at the Reading Regional Airport. From there my instructor pointed me in the direction of Pennsylvania College of Technology for their aviation maintenance program. I graduated in May 2022 with an associate degree in Aviation Technology and was hired by ATS. I look forward to helping the ATS team reach its goals, while learning a lot along the way.

Hi, my name is Ryan. I have always been interested in aviation since I was a young kid. Growing up in the Reading area, I always attended the airshow that happens every year at the Reading Regional Airport. Attending the airshow sparked the passion, especially with warbirds. Fast-forward to 2015, I graduated Pennsylvania College of Technology with a bachelor’s degree in Aviation Maintenance Technology. For the past 5 years I have worked on Cessna, Piper, Beechcraft, and some vintage warbird airframes. Outside of wrenching at ATS, I volunteer at the Mid-Atlantic Air Museum and help work on some of their vintage warbird projects. Along with my Airframe and Powerplant license, I have obtained my Inspection Authorization and my Private Pilot’s license. I joined the ATS team in November of 2019 and am very excited to be here. I am looking forward in helping ATS meet their goals and also challenge myself with any opportunities that cross my path.

My name is Allen Silks and I’m and A&P mechanic on staff with the ATS maintenance team. I earned my certification through Moody Aviation in Spokane Washington and have enjoyed being a part of the aviation community ever since.  I love working with my hands and always find time to work on fun vintage restoration projects outside of working on airplanes.  The thing I love most about aviation maintenance is the community.  There are always unique opportunities to make a difference through building rapport and confidence with those around us.  A great amount of social wealth is prevalent in the aviation community ad here at ATS.  I am thankful for the opportunity to contribute to both through meaningful and intentional work.

Hi, I’m Tommy! Ever since I was a little kid, I’ve always been interested in working with my hands. My passion for aviation sparked when my father first showed me the original “Top Gun” movie and gifted me a die-cast model F-14 Tomcat. From then on, I knew I needed to incorporate aviation into my life. After completing a summer internship here at ATS in 2023, I knew this was the company to begin my career in the aviation industry. I graduated from Pennsylvania College of Technology with my A&P and a Bachelor of Science in Aviation Maintenance Technology. I have so much more to learn, and I am beyond grateful to be here. I look forward to coming into work every day and benefiting the aviation community at ATS!

My name is Michael Reginella. Being around car restoration all my life lead me to my career as an aviation technician. With four years of schooling including a bachelor degree at Pennsylvania College of Technology, I have been provided a base of technical knowledge in order to repair integrated mechanical and electronic systems. I was given an opportunity to work along side of Daryl and Rob back in 2013 as an intern. In May of 2015 I became apart of the ATS family as a full time employee stretching my knowledge into the PC-12 world. I’m happy to be apart of a company that I can call my second family.

Scott Phillips

Aviation Maintenance Scott Phillips
I’m Scott. I manage the parts inventory. As a kid, my hanging airplane models turned my bedroom into Class B airspace. In high school I was a teenage line-boy at Pittsburgh Metro airport. My Air Force adventure began as an F-4 Phantom crew chief deployed to Ramstein AB Germany. A few years later I joined the PA Army Guard and piloted the iconic UH-1 at Ft Indiantown Gap. Here at KLNS, I was a CFI and then charter pilot on the Cessna 414 and B90 King Air. Then Pan Am Airways moved my young family behind the Berlin Wall, to their Flughafen Tegel crew base. We flew ATR-42s through the Berlin air corridors, under the watchful eye of Russian MiGs. Back in the US, I realized my childhood dream as PIC on the B-727. I visited interesting countries in Boeing jets and now I’m back home at KLNS. I am so blessed to work with the awesome, enthusiastic team at Aero-Tech. Let us help you achieve your dreams.
