Rockhill Group continues to grow

MOLINO, Fla. -- James "Rock" Rockhill admits that when he first started his aviation services business a dozen years ago, he was "all thrust and no vector." It didn't take long for the former F-15E pilot to realize that if he expected to survive in business, he had to add some direction to his charge forward approach. Once he did, the company took off. The Rockhill Group provides flight training, courseware development, aircraft leasing, maintenance and cryogenic services for the Air Force, Army, Navy and Federal Aviation Administration. It now has operations at more than two dozen locations and has 200 employees which will grow to 300 thanks to a new contract won in December. A feature story.
