Meet the Team

Kyle Fosso, Founder & Partner

President, A&P, PPL, SEL, SES.

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.

Jason Harley

Lead Engineer

Jason is an active 45 year old enduro racer, lives by Lake Stevens, WA and a third generation aerospace engineer who grew up with cars, motorcycles, airplanes, helicopters and military fighter aircraft. Jason and his parents worked at Boeing designing and building C.F.R 14, part 25 aircraft. 

Jason was accepted into the Boeing designer development program at the age of 19. The program’s candidates struggled to keep pace with the level of technicality and proficiency required by the industry, and several young, talented engineers were let go. Jason persevered through the gauntlet  and successfully graduated in 1995.

At Boeing, Jason worked as the Structures and Systems Design Engineer for the Main Landing Gear of the 747/767 and many other Boeing products. As the Systems Integration Lead Engineer, he was responsible for 30 people who worked on the integration of the 787 Dreamliner’s 21 main systems.

Before joining Bushliner, Jason was developing in-flight test systems for Rolls Royce Engines in the summer of 2020. Sisco  reached out to him, and Jason jumped at the chance to work with Kyle and Sisco. Jason’s commitment to A.R.C and Bushliner is evident, and he will remain a part of the Bushliner family for a long time as exemplified by his comment, “The future is here at Bushliner and its a lot of fun!”
