After graduating from Spartan College I joined the U.S. Air Force and work as an F-16 aircraft crew chief for 4 years. After that I cross trained to become an E-3 AWACS Flight Engineer. In 1998, I separated from active duty and joined the Air Force Reserves as an Instructor Flight Engineer and the same year I was hired by Delta Airlines as a Line Mechanic in Dallas. After closing the Dallas station I moved to Atlanta Georgia and worked in the General Electric CF-6 engine overhaul shop and was furloughed in 2006. I now work for the DOD.
The training that I received at Spartan definitely help me learn all the basics of aircraft maintenance to get me where I’m at today. My favorite part about Spartan College was getting the fly the training helicopter.
