August 31, 2010  By Carey Fredericks

August 31, 2010, Houston, Tx. - Million Air has announced three changes to their management team in August.

Senior management changes within the Million Air Network: Terry Bennett returns to Million Air Anchorage as General Manager, Blaise Sharkey assumes Operations Manager position in Million Air White Plains, and MaryKathryn Floyd has been promoted to General Manager of Million Air Fayetteville.

Terry Bennett returns as the general manager at Million Air Anchorage after working as the Vice President of Alaska Operations at Era Helicopters. Because Era Helicopters is a sister company to Million Air Anchorage, Terry has worked for both since 1989 serving in many diverse capacities. He is a retired U.S. Army Attack Helicopter Standardization Pilot, serving tours in the USA, Middle East, South East Asia, and Europe. Terry holds degrees in Safety Engineering and Aviation Technology as well as a certificate in Aviation Safety Management from the University of Southern California School of Engineering.

Blaise Sharkey began his aviation career in 1979 in the Navy working with A6 Intruders. In 2007, Blaise joined Million Air as the General Manager for Million Air Fayetteville and was recently promoted to Operations Manager in Million Air White Plains. This recent move to Million Air White Plains brings Blaise closer to his family.

MaryKathryn Floyd has excelled as the Customer Service Manager of Million Air Fayetteville since 2006, and was recently promoted to General Manager of Million Air Fayetteville. Her recent activities include working as an integral part of Million Air’s “go team” which aids in the startup of Million Air’s newest FBO locations. Her expanding expertise and contributions has made her an obvious choice to transition to GM of Million Air Fayetteville. MaryKathryn received her BSE from the University of Arkansas in 2004.


“We are committed to retaining and investing in the existing talent pool of the Million Air team,” says Terry Cross, COO of Million Air. Adding, “Our fast growing Million Air University Programs helps us to diversify the talent of our existing employees. We are poised to not only retain leaders but to also develop new ones within our network”.
