A big thanks to Trans States mechanics Bryan Kalwei and Eric Ratliff for going above and beyond to assist with the 805HK lease return. We received this 4th Quarter Above & Beyond nomination from Scott Reid:
I would like to put Bryan Kalwei, and Eric Ratliff in for the Above and Beyond program. These two mechanics were scheduled to help with 805HK lease end by flying with the aircraft on Friday morning 10-31-14 and perform two Boroscopes at a outstation for the lessor to close the lease. The aircraft had mechanical issues on Friday, and they both stayed late trying to fix it. They both returned to work early Saturday morning and helped fix the aircraft and flew with it to Gary, Indiana. Due to the late arrival time. they could not finish the aircraft on Saturday and continued to work through Sunday evening to ensure we closed the lease. These two mechanics showed great initiative in helping the company finish the aircraft.
Bryan and Eric will be entered in the 4th quarter Above & Beyond contest and are each in the running to win a $50 Visa gift card. Great job, guys!
