Alpha-Zulu Composites, LLC, is owned and operated by Paul A. Gaines. Paul is both an A&P Mechanic and Private Pilot (with glider and power ratings) and has 38 years of experience in flying and composite repair and fabrication. Paul was born and raised into aviation, taking his first flight while still in the womb. He was first introduced to gliding at the Texas Soaring Association, where he ran wings/ropes at the age of 10. He flew solo for the first time at 14; By 16 years old he obtained his pilot’s license and had already began to tinker with composite sailplanes. A young Paul would spend two summers at the Glaser-Dirks Flugzeugbau GmbH factory in Germany, and later attended Kennesaw State University, where he obtained a four-year degree in Finance. Paul has since made a living out of his composite knowledge and skills, and currently owns, maintains and flies three aircraft: An ASW-20C, a DG-800S and a Cirrus SR22, all of which he rebuilt from totaled aircraft.
