Highly competent, quality-focused, and accomplished power plant project engineering professional with extensive experience on various power plants. Adept at creating and implementing engineering documents in accordance with Federal and European Aviation Safety Agency regulations, airline maintenance policies and procedures, original equipment manufacturer manuals, and safety bulletins. Expert in conducting component investigations related to in-flight significant events, determining root cause and implementing immediate corrective measures to prevent future events. Superb participant in total quality management programs, tracking component reliability, identifying repetitive faulty internal piece parts during vendor repair and defining replacement time limits for subject parts, thus eliminating aircraft delays and cancellations.
Additional qualifications include:
Project Management |Engine Health Monitoring |
Hydraulic, Oil, Fuel, Electrical, and Air Schematics Reading | Hazardous Waste Management|
Program Training and Development | Budget Management | Staff Supervision and Cross-Functional Collaboration
-Obtained recognition as a subject matter expert from senior leadership by spearheading the development and testing of new engineering service item program as well as streamlining its transition, resulting in a 38 percent improvement in aircraft reliability in the first month of implementation.
-Led efforts in implementing the engine condition monitoring program resulting in prevention of two aircraft catastrophic events on two separate occasions by detecting abnormal internal engine anomalies and requiring corrective action before further flight.
-Facilitated thorough fuel control investigations due to chronic failures experienced in-service. Determined fuel pressure bellows as root cause of fuel controls not meeting their mean time before scheduled removal thresholds. Detection and remediation resulted in a 68 percent increase in fuel control reliability.
-Spearheaded Combustion Liner Metering Panel inspection prescribed by Federal and European Aviation Airworthiness Directives. Expedited project release by coordinating with all company interested parties and outside agencies. On-wing inspections were completed before all other airline operators and increased aircraft reliability rates by 34 percent. Validated aircraft downtime and man-hours required for accomplishment of Combustion Liner Metering Panel inspection; while setting benchmarks for all other airline operators.
-Earned promotion to senior power plant engineer in October of 2009 through stellar performance.
-Expertly managed annual operating budget worth $1M for five years while providing monthly, quarterly, annual, and five year forecasts to senior management for approval.
-Increased vehicle reliability by 60 percent in two months after initial launch of newly developed in-house repair system for assigned special purpose vehicles valued at more than $12M.
-Reduced international flight cancellations by evaluating non-conforming conditions against engineering major/minor logic. Developed temporary/permanent repairs, programmed parts, materials, and established recheck intervals/Final Restoration thresholds, realizing an annual savings of $1.5M. -Demonstrated exceptional ability in facilitating training for engineers and engine and hydraulic technicians for progression into apprentice and craftsman positions. Effectively mentored supervisors for transition into upper management.
-Exceptional contributor in total quality management concept, developing projects addressing low reliability rates on TF-33 16th Stage Manifold Gaskets (28%). Analysis determined manifold gasket thickness (.020 in.) was insufficient in preventing hot engine bleed air from escaping from the 16th Stage Manifold, thus causing severe structural damage. As a result of the project, an improved gasket (.032 in.) was incorporated and directly resulted in an increased reliability rate of 87% within the first year and an Air Force savings of $980K annually.
