About Andy Shiver

 
 

The King Air Expert and General Manager at Flight Solutions

 
 

Andy has a lifelong passion for aviation — and the track record to prove it.

At 17 when most teens are thrilled to get their driver’s license, Andy was flying planes. After graduating from the esteemed Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University with a bachelor’s degree in aeronautical science and an aviation business minor, Andy’s passion for aviation and entrepreneurial ambition led him to begin Shiver Enterprises in 2002, a full-service aircraft management company that went on to become Shiver Total Aviation Solutions and in 2016 was partnered with Flight Solutions, Inc

Andy is a commercial-rated pilot. He holds type ratings in King Air series and Citation series aircraft and has more than 6,000 hours of flight time.

Andy is hardworking and honest and thrives under pressure. And even in his dedication to serving clients, he puts family first. Andy and his wife Kelly have two children, Whitney and Drew, who love to fly and enjoy the wonderful benefits of their dad’s many talents.

What clients say about working with The King Air Expert

 

 

“After working with Andy to secure three airplanes for my Part 135 Charter Operation, including two King Airs, I can say with confidence that Andy is very knowledgeable, honest, and delivers on everything that he advertised.

I judge people through actions, not their words. Everything that Andy said was true. He was very accurate with documents, the plane was prepared for the sale and explained very well, and he was flexible throughout the process. You could feel his professionalism at each step.

Both Andy and Kevin at Flight Solutions understand how to buy and sell airplanes, and they treat their clients well. My charter operation in Southeast Michigan is among the fastest growing in my region, and I refer all my clients to him because I know they will get the best service. And it’s worth noting Andy’s a great pilot.

Andy also maintains relationships. He’s not just about making a sale. I can call and ask him or Kevin about anything. Flight Solutions has been a helpful resource as I’ve maintained my aircraft, and Andy will be the first person I call for upgrade or an acquisition.”

- Ilya Khakham; Owner, DCT Aviation

 

 

“As a pilot who is passionate about finding the right plane for my needs, I turned to Andy Shiver at Flight Solutions to help me with my most recent upgrade.

While I knew what I wanted in an aircraft, Andy played a critical role in search, negotiation, and final acquisition.

He took the time to find the right plane with the right pedigree for my needs, never trying to force-fit something or rush the process. And as we moved through each step of the sale, he clearly knew how to negotiate all the intricacies of purchasing an aircraft.

The best endorsement I can give is that I have referred friends who have also gone on to work with Andy in their own aircraft acquisition. I don’t take a referral like that lightly, and I did not hesitate to enthusiastically endorse Andy and his team.

Andy helped bring as much ease and enjoyment to the purchase process as I feel when I’m flying. His knowledge and professionalism are unmatched.”

- Shawn Haley; Pilot and entrepreneur
