My career highlight so far
Senior Engineering Officer (SEngO) on 99 Squadron at RAF Brize Norton, where I was responsible for ensuring the maintenance and servicing of the UK C-17 fleet. Here I led the Squadron’s Junior Engineering Officers (JEngOs) and the Mechanical & Avionics technicians, both in the UK and when deployed overseas. I had to ensure the Squadron had enough highly trained technicians and that my airworthiness decisions guaranteed we had sufficient safe and serviceable to undertake our operational tasks. These included bringing all our troops and equipment back from Afghanistan, various humanitarian missions and bringing home Ebola patients for treatment!
