John has been an aircraft mechanic with LPAS for four years, but has been working with aircraft for 16 years. He was a helicopter mechanic in the Army for seven years and worked for an airline as a mechanic for four years. In addition to working at LPAS, he is currently working on medical helicopters. John has his A&P with IA.

John has loved aircraft since he was a child. When he was six years old, his father surprised him and his brother by pulling them out of school to go on their first helicopter ride. He thought this was the coolest thing in the world and when the Army offered him the chance to be an aircraft mechanic, he seized the opportunity and has not looked back.
