New Flight Supports Mechanics

New Flight Supports Mechanics

Submitted by Robins AFB Office of Public Affairs

ROBINS AIR FORCE BASE, Ga. – The new Consolidated Support Flight here is ensuring Warner Robins Air Logistics Complex mechanics have what they need to operate as quickly and efficiently as possible.

In the past, mechanics spent time not only physically working on various weapon systems, but also preparing to perform tasks.

Now, mechanics have more ‘touch time’ “…because everything is pre-positioned for them,” said Leo Honore, CSF flight chief.

Ed Montano, 402nd Aircraft Maintenance Group director, likened the work of the CSF to that of technicians readying surgical equipment for doctors. Tools, materials and equipment are pulled out in advance, so the only thing the doctor needs to do is show up for an operation.

“Realistically, it’s treating the mechanics like surgeons,” said Montano.
