San Juan, Puerto Rico. (November 1, 2018) – Mike Bradley is returning to Seaborne Airlines as Vice President of Maintenance and Engineering. In the new position, Bradley will serve as the airline’s FAA Part 119 director of maintenance (DOM).


Bradley, who started his aviation career as an aircraft maintenance technician for the U.S. Air Force and who previously served in maintenance management roles at Seaborne, re-joins the airline with more than 40 years of leadership and aircraft maintenance and engineering experience.


Most recently, Bradley served as the Director of Maintenance and Engineering for Silver Airways, who recently acquired Seaborne Airlines, and also previously served as Lead Inspector and CASS Manager for Silver. Previously, Bradley was Managing Director of Maintenance for Island Airlines and has served in maintenance roles at Island Airways USVI, Air Wisconsin Airlines, Mountain Air Express, Mesa Airlines, Weststates Airline and Jet Express. Bradley was a part of the Seaborne maintenance team when the airline was headquartered in St. Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands.


Bradley graduated with honors from East Coast Aero Tech in aviation management and studied aviation at the Community College of the Air Force.


“We are delighted to have Mike Bradley re-join Seaborne Airlines,” said Seaborne COO Captain Jesus Medina. “Mike’s deep knowledge of regional airline technical operations and experience with land-based and amphibious aircraft will help us raise the bar in improving our level of performance.”
