Known as the Big Dog, Mark Burgess not only acts as a partner with Big Air, he also serves as Founder and Chief Operations Officer for Burgess Aircraft Management LLC and OzAir Charter Service. After an early start in aviation at 16 years old, Burgess eventually started work as a flight instructor before moving on to fire patrol pilot, then line charter pilot. While flying in these sectors of the industry, he helped launch and expand several charter firms and flight departments before venturing out on his own. With over 13,000 flight hours in fixed wing piston, turboprop and jet aircraft, Mark provides a in-depth knowledge of many aircraft makes and models. His love of flying still exists after 40+ years of flying, and uses that expertise to “provide first class, professional aviation services to his community.” With many aircraft acquisitions through the years, Mark is entrusted by many discerning clients to help in buying or selling their aircraft.
