About Aero Documents
Improving the way aviation experts manage document approvals
Who We Are
Meet the Founders
As Chief Engineer, Bill is responsible for leading the design, certification and deployment planning processes for Aero Documents. With 17 years as a Designated Engineering Representative (DER), over 700 FAA approvals, and countless hours invoicing, Bill developed Aero Documents to be the solution for improving and automating document approval workflows.
He is an industry veteran of several highly respected avionics and aircraft OEMs, with a background in customer service, system and certification engineering as well as marketing, program development and operations management. Bill founded an independent FAA approved STC Organization Designation Authorization (ODA).
Bill holds FAA delegated authority in the areas of Electrical Systems, including EWIS, and Certification Management as a Designated Engineering Representative (DER).
As president of Aero Documents, Peyson leads marketing and business operations for the woman-owned, cloud-based aviation systems platform. Prior to co-founding Aero Documents, Peyson established an independent communications consulting firm focused on strategic messaging and special projects. Additionally, she led the launch and success of an award-winning publication for the world’s largest dairy cooperative.
While Peyson has spent the majority of her career in agriculture, growing up with her father — Bill Shields — as an engineer, her shift to aviation was a natural progression. She holds a bachelor’s of science in agricultural communications from Missouri State University.
