The next time you talk to Mike McCune, AvAir Director of Inventory, imagine him sitting behind the wheel of his 1974 Mach I Ford Mustang driving the quarter mile in 10.70 seconds at 135 mph. Now, that’s fast!
His passion for drag racing began in high school with this first car–a stock 1973 Dodge Duster that he converted and raced at tracks in Florida, Georgia, South Carolina and Texas. With his next hot rod, a 1965 California Coup Corvette, Mike took first place in his class at the Super Chevy Show at Palm Beach International Raceway in 1985.
“I love my aviation family and the friends I’ve made in this industry, but I’m also blessed to have a family outside of work, and that’s my racing family,” says Mike. While his passion for racing is a little-known fact of Mike, it embodies the qualities that make him so valuable at AvAir—leadership, ability to develop relationships, and of course, a speedy delivery.
