Russell HalaszLandmark Aviation has announced the appointment of Russell Halasz as
general manager at its Raleigh-Durham location. 

Russell has been at the Raleigh/Durham
International Airport since 1995 when he began as a baggage handler with
Raleigh Flying Services for TWA, Northwest and Continental. In 2003, in
addition to becoming a multi engine-commercial-instrument-rated pilot, he
obtained a Bachelor’s degree in Aeronautical Science and a minor in Aviation
Weather from Embry-Riddle

“I returned to Raleigh
for a line job with Landmark while I worked on my CFI,” general manager Russell
Halasz explained. “However, I enjoyed my job so much that I began focusing more
on learning the intricacies of the FBO business and less on flying.”

Russell joined Landmark Aviation as a line service technician
in May of 2003 and after two years he had worked his way up to operations manager.
In 2008 he was promoted to assistant manager.

“Russell brings strong leadership to the team, and with over
eight years of experience at Landmark is more than capable of handling the
demands and pressures that a fast-paced base such as RDU requires,” regional
vice president Jim McNeill said.
