Summit Welcomes Executive VP of Aircraft Sales

We at Summit Aviation are very excited to announce M. Shane Ellis has joined our team as our new Executive VP of Aircraft Sales!

Shane has been in aviation for over 20 years after learning from his father and grandfather, who were also both in the industry. You could say aviation runs through his veins.

Shane’s biggest asset he brings to Summit Aviation is not only his knowledge of aircraft sales and acquisitions, but his customer service skills are second to none. He makes the sales and acquisition process easy and straightforward for his customers making a seemingly difficult process a breeze for everyone he helps along the way.

In his short time with us, his knowledge and experience in the industry have already proven an invaluable asset. As aviation is an ever-changing industry and our fleet continues to grow, I am confident that Shane will be a vital part of our continued successes due in large part to his alignment with the Summit Core Values.” Ben Walton, Owner, and President says.

In Shane’s free time, you can find him spending time with his wife and four children. He serves several roles in the Boy Scouts of America and is a lifetime member of the National Eagle Scout Association. Additionally, Shane is the sponsor of Aviation post 67 based out of Hicks Airfield in Fort Worth, Texas. He has a BS in Political Science from Georgia Southern University and an MBA from the University of Texas at Tyler is an instrument-rated pilot and owns and operates his own aircraft.
