Meet the Team

Kyle Fosso


Kyle is an excellent land and sea private pilot with a special emphasis in back-country flying. He and Samantha Hagan founded Bushliner Aircraft in 2018 with the focus and vision of re-releasing the conventional Cessna 170, 180 and 185 as enhance aircraft. Kyle’s unrelentless drive and vision for a modern conventional Cessna started early in his life.

Kyle became immersed in aviation at the young age of 14 when he took an introduction flight. To pay for lessons, Kyle began helping the mechanic, Mac. Under Mac’s guidance, Kyle purchased a 170B when he was 15 years old and, as Mac’s apprentice, tested out of A&P school at the age of 19.Kyle is an expert at sheet metal and even helped Sisco on the production of a palletized spray kit system used to combat oil spills overseas in cargo variants of the 737 prior to ARC.

Kyle’s passion for modernizing legacy Cessna aircraft and the long hours of restoring his airplane were rewarded with the honor of a Bronze Lindy at EAA AirVenture in 2017. When Kyle is not in the shop, he is encouraging young aviators to pursue aviation related goals and provides introduction flights as much as possible.

As a founder of ARC, Kyle, enforces quality control and answers technical questions from clients. Furthermore, he conceptualizes designs to exceed modern standard to maximize performance and safety of Bushliner pruducts.
