Coopesa’s Calvo Brings International Perspective to ARSA Presidency

Warner Calvo, ARSA’s 2016 President

ARSA’s board of directors has announced the election of its new president: Warner Calvo, quality and safety director of Coopesa, R.L. in Alajuela, Costa Rica has accepted the position. The selection was made during the board’s annual meeting, which followed the 2016 Strategic Leadership Conference in Montreal, Canada.

Calvo has more than 30 years of aviation experience and holds both Costa Rican and American aircraft maintenance technician certificates. He supports Coopesa’s compliance with the regulatory requirements of more than 18 civil aviation authorities. Calvo most-recently served ARSA as vice president before ascending to the top leadership position. ARSA’s 2015 president, Jet Center MFR General Manager Gary Hudnall, will remain on the board as a valuable resource to the association’s leadership.

ARSA’s board of directors represents a broad range of international maintenance interests. Board members direct the association’s work to best serve the aviation community. As an international representative, Calvo’s leadership will be instrumental in continuing ARSA’s strategic push to expand its global membership and influence.

“Aviation is borderless,” Calvo said. “Political boundaries can’t restrain a free-flying aircraft. Unfortunately, the companies that support the flying community – maintenance providers especially – deal with boundries and barriers to international business every day. ARSA works diligently to limit the burdens placed on repair stations and I’m eager to continue furthering those efforts alongside my fellow board members.”

During the meeting, Basil Barino, executive vice president of repair divisions for NORDAM in Tulsa, Oklahoma was elected vice president and Dave Latimer, vice president of regulatory compliance for HAECO Americas, became treasurer. Calvo, Barimo and Latimer will each serve one year terms.
