Veteran maintainer gains better insight into flight ops through immersion program

Capt. Joe Schenkel (right), 416th Flight Test Squadron F-16 test pilot, goes over the cockpit layout with Greg Welsh, a 33-year veteran maintainer and maintenance manager with the 412th Aircraft Maintenance Squadron, before taking part in an actual flight test mission Aug. 4, as part of the 412th Operations and Maintenance Immersion Program. This program is part of an initiative to give operators and maintainers the opportunity to create positive interaction so both gain insight into each other’s work dynamic.
