JEFF DOUGHERTY

Director of Analyst Team

Navy Days

A native of Hazleton, Pennsylvania, Jeff Dougherty joined the US Navy at age 18.

“I started out as an Aviation Electronics Technician, stationed at Naval Air Station Cecil Field in Florida, to maintain the avionics on various fixed wing aircraft. Later, I was promoted to Shift Supervisor managing a team of 10 technicians focused on the avionics maintenance of F/A-18s,” explains Jeff.

In 1993, Jeff was named Avionics Branch Manager aboard the USS John F. Kennedy where he was responsible for about 200 technicians and supervisors and the avionics maintenance of more than 60 aircraft.

Over the years, Jeff led several large teams and added specializations including quality assurance, information technology systems development and helicopter operations to his expanding skillset.

“Our analysts bring an average of 10 to 15 years of aviation maintenance experience to their roles and act as your go-to partner. By working as an integrated part of your team and preemptively identifying potential issues, they are directly using their expertise to add value to your operations.”

While serving, Jeff was certified as an Electronics Mechanic (US Department of Labor) and a Radiotelegraph Operator with Radar Endorsement (Federal Communications Commission).

After 21 years in the Navy and more than six years at sea, Jeff decided it was time for a career change that would allow him to spend more time with his wife Karen and his two daughters.

“In 2004, my family and I settled in Jacksonville, Florida. Despite my passion for aviation, I wanted to try something different and became the Plant Manager of a 98,000-square-foot manufacturing facility with about 250 employees. It was a great experience and I learned a lot but after a few years, I really wanted to return to aviation – but this time as a civilian!”

Four years later, Jeff joined SkyBOOKS. It was his first exposure to business aviation maintenance tracking – a focus he would quickly add to his broad experience.

Opening Jacksonville

In 2015, Jeff joined the TRAXXALL team. Starting as a Maintenance Analyst and now Director of the Maintenance Analyst Team, Jeff was tasked with hiring a team and opening a TRAXXALL office in Jacksonville.

Working with aircraft operators in the US and worldwide, he further developed his expertise in fixed wing and rotor business aircraft, including Textron Aviation, Bombardier, Gulfstream, Dassault Falcon, Embraer, Bell Textron, Airbus Helicopters, Leonardo and Sikorsky models. In addition to his customer-facing responsibilities, Jeff manages an expert team dedicated to customer service.

“I am very proud of the team of maintenance analysts that we have assembled. Here in Jacksonville, we are fortunate to have a large community of experienced aviation professionals to draw from. Our maintenance analysts possess three distinct skillsets: aviation maintenance expertise, solid technology and software experience, and the soft skills of customer support. It is an exceptional talent profile.”

“Our analysts distinguish us from our competitors. Drawing from their knowledge, they appreciate the importance of their work and the impact that it has on operational efficiency and safety. They bring an uncommon sense of responsibility and ownership to what they do. In my career, I have never met a team that works so well together,” concludes Jeff.

“More than anything, what I like to see is success create success. The TRAXXALL team is successful because we help you succeed.”
