Who We Are

We might be a mid-sized company nestled in the heart of the country, but that’s where our middling stance ends. Our solutions are cutting-edge and developed by a team that is anything but average.

"ELP Aviation is very dependable, timely, accurate and price conscious…and they are good life and business people. The work they have performed has been quite excellent and all projects have been reached within budget and on time, allowing us to achieve our goals with a high degree of satisfaction.” Danny C., PSA Airlines

We Are ELP

We love what we do, and it shows; that’s why every airline we work with not only values our solutions but also values our partnership. We’re as solid as the tools we develop and you’ll know that the second you speak to Erwin, Stephanie, or anyone else on our team.

Our Corporate Strategy

``WE WIN``

“We” is intended to mean the “royal we” where We are — the customer, ELP as a company, and the ELP staff.–

The “We Win” concept is simple.

We ensure the customer wins by understanding their operation and their needs, clearly identifying the problems to solve, carefully documenting the solution and timeline, delivering as promised, charging a fair price for the value delivered, and providing highly responsive product support. 

We ensure ELP as a company wins by prioritizing customer projects based on realistic allocation of resources operating as efficiently as possible while maintaining steady growth of bench strength, in terms of skills and bandwidth.  

We ensure the ELP staff all win by clearly communicating this strategy, the projects we are prioritizing, and how each individual in the company contributes value to the customer, and therefore to ELP. We assign work based on ability (skills and bandwidth) and provide the resources each person needs to succeed.

Our Story From our Founder Erwin Ponce

As I reflect on the last thirteen years, I cannot help but think about how we have evolved and the ways we are still the same.

Over ten years ago, ELP Aviation was born in my bedroom. My wife Linda and I took out all the money we had in our 401 and decided we were going to make a go at it. I had 20+ years’ experience in the airline industry and my wife had 10 years’ experience as a college professor and creator of virtual classes for several colleges. So, we put our talents together and offered our customers aviation software consulting, simple and complex reporting tools, and custom e-learning materials.

Thanks to our loyal customers, we moved away from consulting and started to create new software solutions, every year getting more and more complex. Until one day, to my surprise, I have a full staff of developers and aviation experts in an office building I own and spanning over 2 continents, and an amazing suite of products that I wish I had when I worked in the trenches of an SOC.  What an evolution!

But you know the saying, just as much as things change, they also stay the same. We have always been a family-owned company, that sees our customers as friends and colleagues. We care about their struggles and have an obsessive desire to solve their pain points. We are big enough now to solve any complex issue thrown at us, and small enough to still care like it is the only important issue that matters. We still enjoy a practical joke and a fun working atmosphere.  We are excited for the future and make strides every year to revolutionize the airline industry.
