What sparked your interest in the aviation industry?

I came from a military family; My father, 5 brothers and my sister all joined the Army. I was always fascinated by aviation so I went a different route and chose the Air Force to expand my aviation opportunities. 29 years later, after being honorably discharged from the USAF in 1990 as a Jet Engine Technician, I’m honored to say I’m still following that same career path with no regrets.

What specific knowledge or tips would you give to customers as it pertains to engine maintenance?

Pick your engine providers carefully- as if your family was on every flight! You can't pull the aircraft over and park on a cloud so remember to put quality, safety and support before the cheapest bidder.

In your mind, what sets Dallas Airmotive apart from other industry organizations?

The people at Dallas Airmotive believe in committing to the customer before, during and after the event. In addition, we have one of the strongest warranties in the business and we are always looking for new, innovative ways to better support our customer base.
