I am a new member to the steering committee of this prestigious group, the TAMC. My aviation career began after cross-training to the maintenance field and becoming a B-52 crew chief in the U.S. Air Force. After serving in the Air Force, I hired on at United Airlines as an A&P Mechanic. That was just over 20 years ago.
At United, my first two assignments were working narrow-body “C” checks in an area affectionately known as the “bat cave,” and then I went on to the narrow body “special routs” crew. After about 15 months at each, I moved on to line maintenance, five years in SFOMM and the last 12 years as part of the prominent Seattle Aircraft Maintenance Team.
