Why Did You Join GES?

From the beginning of my career, I have been a turbine engine mechanic. Back in early 2000, I worked for another maintenance facility, and was looking to advance my knowledge and career. I was excited to learn that Dallas Airmotive had a Regional Turbine Center located in Minneapolis, MN. I hand delivered my resume to the manager at the time and soon after was excited to learn I was hired!


What keeps you motivated here at GES?

I stay motivated by the people I work with here. One thing that I value is helping others to achieve their goals, so working with my dedicated team to solve problems and make things happen is very rewarding.


Why do you enjoy being a part of the team?

I enjoy seeing new technicians in the facility and how excited they are about aviation. We all have the same interest, which makes it very easy to get excited about the future of the industry. We actually enjoy our job and sharing our knowledge with each other.


What sparked your interest in the aviation industry? 

As a young child, my grandfather and I would talk about airplanes. He always had aircraft magazines along with schematics for me to look at. I would spend hours reading and looking them over. As I got older, I never lost this interest. I even kept some of these magazines and plans, and recently passed them onto my son and daughters.



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

  1. Find a good knowledgeable engine technician, and build a solid, trustworthy relationship with him or her. It doesn’t matter what engine product it is, they can be a great asset when engine issues arise and will have resources to solve these issues. 
  2. Major events: Start planning and talking to your engine representative 6-12 months before the engine inputs. Have the engine shop research the logbook. The shops will be able to start sourcing and ordering known parts that will be replaced during repair.
  3. Don’t be afraid to ask questions.
