He’s also responsible for ensuring equipment and personnel are scheduled enabling training for as many as 80 students and instructors at a time. He keeps his skills sharp by providing tactical control supporting Luke Air Force Base and Davis Monthan AFB F-16 training sorties. He also takes time to mentor and develop his Airmen, providing much-needed leadership as they mature professionally and take on more responsibility.”
