Making a Mark
Meet Matt Hagans, mover and shaker

In case you hadn’t noticed, general aviation is a comparatively small community. After a few short months, you begin to run into the same people, hear the same names, and learn who the movers and shakers are. That goes double for those making the move from piston- to turbine-powered airplanes. That’s because there are fewer turbine airplanes on the market, and fewer firms that specialize in the step-up market.

In the market for a Twin Commander or a Phenom 100 or 300? Then sooner or later you will most certainly meet Matt Hagans. In those two markets, Hagans is the 900-pound gorilla.
