Meet Our Veterans

Billy Doolittle

Billy Doolittle

Engineering Specialist

"I was a 30-year military aviation veteran with 13 years of civil aviation experience, looking for an opportunity to expand my aviation experience, when this job opportunity became available. I joined a very high-performing team of aviation special-mission-aircraft experts concentrated on producing quality products and meeting customer expectations. Today, we are called Bombardier Defense and are known for turning challenges into opportunities — the future is looking great!"

Jess White

Marketing Specialist

I was a US Air Force Protocol officer that planned meetings, events, ceremonies. I was thrilled to join Bombardier Defense a little over a year ago to help lead their marketing, events and communication efforts. There is a true standard of excellence and comradery within our teams that is built on mutual respect, trust and strong communication.   I look forward the continued growth of Bombardier Defense and am so excited to see what the future holds!

Sales Director

I am a veteran with 30+ years of service to the U.S. Air Force.  Bombardier Defense has several attributes that attracted me; it’s relatively new in the defense sector so it’s like an agile start up, but with an experienced infrastructure to enable success. While these things attracted me, it is the people I have met that will surely retain me — professional in all they do while having fun and with a winning spirit.
