Martin O'Loughlin, President & COO
Martin O’Loughlin was born in Boston, and spent most of his youth in the suburbs of Washington, D.C. He graduated from George Washington University with a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry and was later commissioned as an Officer in the United States Navy. He became an FA-18 pilot, Topgun graduate, and flew dozens of other military aircraft continuously for 20 years. Martin was the most junior pilot ever to win the Michael Hoff Attack Aviator of the Year Memorial Award. As a USAF F-16 exchange pilot, he was his squadron’s and wing’s overall Top Gun multiple times. Later, the FA-18 squadron he commanded earned distinction in combat, and was the first Hornet squadron ever to win every competitive award in the same year for personnel retention, operational efficiency, aircraft maintenance excellence, ordnance handling expertise, and safety.
In his distinguished career, Martin was awarded the Air Force Airman’s Medal for Heroism, several Meritorious Service Medals, numerous Air Medals and Aerial Achievement Medals, and many combat, deployment, and personal awards. His career milestones include over 5,000 flight hours, 100 combat missions, and 800 carrier landings.
Martin left active duty to become the CEO of a multi-location FBO involved in the full spectrum of aviation activities – fuel sales; aircraft sales, maintenance, and rental; flight instruction; firefighting; and charter, operating more than 75 aircraft. He has had similar leadership roles with other FBO chains, aerospace companies, FAA-certified repair stations, and flight operations throughout North America and the Caribbean. Martin has founded or co-founded twelve companies, been a hands-on leader for several others as a C-Level executive, and served on university business school and charter high school Boards of Directors.
As an active pilot with over 7,000 flight hours in 100 models of aircraft, Martin has vast experience in aircraft modification, flight test, and certification. However, his greatest enjoyment comes from working with the flight instructors and aircraft technicians who are making the next generation of pilots. His recreational passions include flying, skiing, cycling, golf, and hiking in the mountains with his Golden Retrievers.
Jordan Bussell, A&P
I was born and raised in Louisburg, Kansas. I moved to Ogden in July 2020 after separating from the United States Air Force. Before Ogden I was stationed at Barksdale, AFB in Louisiana where I was a Crew Chief on the B-52H for 4 years. While I was there I got my A&P license and after moving to Ogden I started working for CSA as a mechanic in August 2020. I enjoy anything outdoors, but mostly motocross and boardsports. I am now starting on my pilots license and would like to eventually be able to fly to remote locations while also maintaining the aircraft that I fly.
Jesse Champagne, A&P
My name is Jesse and Cornerstone Aviation has been my home base since January of 2020. I have been in maintenance since 2015, most of the time serving in the Air Force. I served at Barksdale Air Force Base Louisiana and maintained B-52 Bombers. The proudest moment of my career was serving as part of a combat deployment to Al Udeid Air base Qatar. During this deployment, we took on a huge role in Operation Inherent Resolve, liberating the many people affected by ISIS control throughout the region. I earned my A&P License through a program offered by the Air Force during the last several months of my career. This was around the same time my eyes turned west, and Utah seemed to be the whole package. I love being out here in the Rockies and I’m more than proud to be a member of CSA’s maintenance team!
My name is Victor, I was born a raised in Los Alamos, California and I have been a part of the CSA team since August 2022. Prior to that I was an egress technician in the United States Air Force. I was stationed at Eielson AFB in Alaska for 6 years and enjoyed all the outdoor opportunities it had to offer. I maintained the explosive system in the ejection seat, cockpit, and canopy on the F-16 and F-35 fighters. My favorite part was traveling to all the different places to participate in multi national exercises. I look forward to start working towards getting my pilot ratings here at CSA.
