Meet the Flying Fish Team
Robert Varney’s passion for aviation comes from a deep-rooted family tradition of flying and maintaining aircraft. Robert is a third-generation pilot and mechanic who has been surrounded by all aspects of aviation from day one. Robert holds an Airline Transport Pilot Certificate and currently flies for a Part 121 Airline. When not flying for the airline Robert subscribes to the “old school” method of flying warbirds, such as DC-3’s and his family’s Stearman. Most of Robert’s flying time was accumulated when he was based in Puerto Rico flying the Caribbean in DC-3’s and Convair 340 and 440’s.
Robert had a shared vision when starting Flying Fish Aircraft Parts LLC when he learned from his own costly mistakes and experiences that there was a true need for a local source of parts and avionics repair for the average aircraft owner at a more affordable price. It brings Robert true pleasure to fulfill all his customers’ needs; from that unexpected last minute avionics repair before a long-anticipated flight, to having a case of oil and spark plugs on hand for the weekend warrior to complete his annual.
