Kim Wilmes | CEO

“It was an exciting leap attaining my first FAA Certified Repair Station authorization and going into business with Craig in 1996.  As the certified Women-Owned Business owner and CEO of MII,  I am fortunate to have the opportunity to work with an incredibly talented team of employees.  Our joint efforts have garnered MII’s impeccable reputation in the aviation community and long-term success.”


Craig Wilmes | Accountability Manager

“Kim and I opened the doors of MII in 1996.  As a young man working on the family farm, I was first bit by the aviation bug while watching the crop duster fly wildly over the fields with accuracy and insanity.  20+ years later of aviation experience, I have the great reward of operating an aviation company, working with such a strong team and seeing so many complex projects released from our doors.”


Mike Sirr | Chief Inspector, Quality Manager

"I worked side by side with Craig for several years prior to his co-founding of MII.  It was that time working together that convinced me to leave a stable position for the fledgling MII. With history in the Army and over 25+ years of aviation experience it is rare to come across something I haven’t seen before, and I am not intimidated by any challenge.  With an amazing team we have overcome and conquered many complex projects with great success!  I look forward to the next big project.”
