Believe 100% that God is always with me and wont throw at me more than I can handleOur time on Earth is when we decide what eternity will be for each of usRelationships run the world… processes are important, but people and their relationships are what gets things accomplished.

What you see is what you getHobbies: Golf and taking care of church stuff…Married to Jackie for 26 years. Children -- Grace 21, Robert 18Slide4


As the FAA is to commercial aviation – AED is to most of Army AviationMission: “Deliver responsive airworthiness solutions throughout the system life cycle. Sustain the leadership and engineering expertise necessary to provide valued products to our aviation customers”Slide5


Definition: “The property of an air system configuration to safely attain, sustain, and complete flight in accordance with approved usage limits”Governed by Army Regulation 70-62

DA-G4 (LTG Mason) is the Airworthiness ProponentAMCOM CG (MG Collyar) is the Airworthiness Authority

MG Collyar delegates to AED for the majority of Army AviationSlide6

Because of The Quality Products We Provide:Airworthiness Releases (AWR)Statement of Airworthiness Qualification (SAQ)

Airworthiness Impact Statements (AWIS)Airworthiness Qualification Plans (AQP)

Expert reviews of assigned CDRLsQuality Deficiency Reporting (QDR) analysisExpert analysis, advice, service, and consultation in: structures and materiel, aeromechanics, mission equipment, propulsion, sustaining and maintenance engineering, and test support.Slide9


Three Key Points I continue to drive home with the workforce and our customers.1. We take our mission seriously, we don’t take ourselves seriously.

2. Our job is to get our customers to their finish line.3. We want our customers to want us on their teams, not have to have us on their teams.Slide10


As a necessity due the Army’s role with MI-17 and furthered now with the adoption of DOD Directive 5030.61…AED’s role now includes validating/verifying processes rather than conducting detailed engineering data analysis when determining airworthiness acceptability of foreign airworthiness authorities.Slide11

Sequestration isn’t going away anytime soonOur customer budgets are shrinking80+ % of our money comes from our customers…

Continued “quality of life” pressuresHiring freeze – so struggling to build the benchAll that said:

AED will continue to make the choice to be happy and motivated.We are a proud organization that looks forward to continuing to provide quality and timely products to our customers.Slide13
