Skills: System Safety Engineering

Career Summary:

My 40 years aviation career experiences span most aspects of the aerospace business; as a corporate and commuter Airline Transport Pilot, Director of Training, US Army Maintenance Test Pilot and US Military Aviation Maintenance Manager (CW-4) and FAA Principal Operations Inspector (GS-13) prior to my current appointment with Northrop Grumman in 2008 as System Safety, Software Safety & Airworthiness Lead Engineer.


I am currently assigned to the  Global Hawk Program as Lead System Safety Engineer and I like to share details of my technical work (please  below a copy my weekly report).


Previously in Northrop Grumman I supported MQ-4C Software and Hardware Safety Criticality Analysis and Reliability, UK Sentry B-707 E-3D Whole Life Support System Hardware/Software Modifications, and a Proposal for JSTARS Recap; a  Gulfstream 550 platform including FAA Airworthiness support activities. I have been in Systems Engineering, Integration, Test and Survivability; I worked with major safety programs & activities including Boeing F/A-18E/F Super Hornet, Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II, Solid State Laser Weapon Project, MQ-4C, MQ-8C, RQ-4, NATO AGS, and many Advanced Projects (AP-610 & APM Projects in support of NRO) and I am always looking for more challenging positions.


I have completed graduate studies and received a Masters in Aeronautical Science degree (MAS) in Aviation Safety and Operations from ERAU in 2001. I am holding FAA ATP rating with seven (7) aircraft type ratings, FAA flight instructor ratings, and FAA aircraft and power plant mechanic license. I have had a lifeā€long interest in aviation maintenance and flight operations and flew over 7000 hours and maintained a number of civilian & military airplanes and helicopters.


My extensive background in Aviation/Aerospace Operations and Safety, Military and Civilian Aircraft System working knowledge, Regulatory Requirements, Airworthiness Certifications, Aircraft Maintenance/Flight Operations, and System Safety Engineering makes me an invaluable asset to any aerospace industry.
