Ensuring that our aircraft fly

We do everything we can to keep our aircraft in peak condition at all times. Conducting pre- and postflight inspections, Airlift/Special Mission Aircraft Maintenance specialists ensure that all our aircraft are operational and ready to fly. Primarily responsible for general maintenance, these technicians also determine when repairs require the focus of an individual systems specialist so the aircraft are ready to go whenever they’re needed.
