Hard working , very proffessional company, driven for success.
Maintenance Manager, Heavy Maintenance (Former Employee) – Appleton, WI – June 15, 2012
There is no typical day when one manages outsourced maintenece on 70 CRJ regional jet aircraft. With at least 3 major heavy maintenance visits going on 24/7, out of state and managing the projects, work hours, evaluations, budget and progress for a team of co-workers and managing a huge budget there is only trying to stay on top of everything, reaction to problems and a strong and consistant push to get a finished, quality aircraft, safe, on time and within buget so another one can go in for another maintenance visit and the cycle repeats. It is fast paced, never boring and always evolving. Air Wisconsin's senior leadership strives for their employees to work smarter, not harder and steamline each process. It was togh yet very rewarding and I wouldn't have traded the experience for anything. We had a highly dedicated management staff who could shift priorities at a moments notice and tackle another huge project while maintaining the "normal" duties of our appointed positions. When looking back from maintaining a fleet of 5 different type aircraft, huge parts inventories, as many as 86 aircraft with all the specialized MX on each, from repairing huge structural reairs and modidifications to re-painting all of the aircraft numerous times into a totally different paint scheme, it was great employment for many years and freindships with co workers that remain stable today.
