The president of Mustang Aeronautics is Chris Tieman. Chris earned a degree in aerospace engineering from the University of Michigan and has a background in metal fabrication. He acquired his pilots license in 1986 and soon began looking for something to build that was faster and more economical than the average factory airplane. The Mustang II was the best choice for the desired requirements so plans were purchased and construction started.
When Robert Bushby decided to retire in 1992 Chris' hobby of home kitplane builder became his profession. Mustang Aeronautics, Inc. acquired the design rights from Robert Bushby in March 1992 for both the Midget Mustang and Mustang II aircraft. Located just north of Detroit in Troy, Michigan. His background in aeronautical engineering and architectural aluminum are evident in today's complete kits that have reduced build times dramatically. New manufacturing processes have simplified the kits yet still maintained the economy of the Mustang through improved manufacturing efficiency.
