Raymond Villalba is a first generation American who was born and raised in Queens, New York by his Dominican Mother and Ecuadorian Father, who immigrated to New York as teenagers in the 1960’s. Ray’s father owned and operated an Automotive Carburetor Shop where Ray got a taste of turning a wrench for the first time at the young age of 4. In Ray’s case, saying he was born with a wrench in his hand… isn’t an understatement.
Ray was privileged to attend an Aviation High School in Queens NY. This institute was a special FAA certified high school that uniquely specialized co-educational high school and prepared students for careers in aviation maintenance and the aerospace industry. He graduated in1996 as a licensed A&P, at the age of 18, and while in aviation high school he met Nancy, his future wife, and mother of his two children Emma and Elias. They moved to Houston where Ray began his lifelong passion as an aircraft technician, working for the past 20 years on piston aircrafts as well as light jets.
Through hard work, later Ray acquired his I.A., private pilot license, and now owns a Piper Cherokee 140. He has attended flight safety classes, Garmin seminars and is an ABS maintenance academy graduate.
When not turning a wrench, listening to pilots and aircraft owners concerns about their aircraft issues, or going the extra miles to keep them safe and airworthy…. He enjoys the art of Aikido and has become an accomplished black belt.
