Teresa Ortega
Managing Partner & Co-Founder
Teresa Ortega has over 24 years of experience in the aviation industry. She began her career with Cessna Aircraft company in 1995, supporting the international sales department in various administrative roles. After obtaining a degree from Friends University in Organizational Management and Leadership, Teresa was promoted to Regional Sales Director for ProAdvantage programs Europe Middle East, Africa, and Russia. She held that position until retiring from Cessna in 2018.
Born and raised in Wichita, it is fair to say that aviation is truly in her blood. Her father and grandfather were both in aviation, so the “bug” got her at an early age. Teresa now holds a commercial certificate with multi and instrument ratings. She also has SIC privileges in the Citation Mustang and is working towards obtaining a 510-initial rating.
After retiring from Cessna, Teresa and her husband, Kirby, decided to combine their aviation savvy and passion into a business that would help others obtain their aviation goals. Hence, the beginning of Ortega Aviation Services.
While aviation has been a long-time passion for Teresa, she also enjoys traveling, family, cooking, volunteering, and spending time with her grandson, Daichi.
Teresa’s passion and experience with so many aspects of general and business aviation make her a great consultant to have on your side. Her goal is to make your aircraft ownership experience worry-free and enjoyable, and she has the knowledge and resources to make it happen.
