During the month of February 2020, Mr. Meyer was instrumental in the validation and roll-out of the Maintenance Steering Group-3 (MSG-3) program. He leveraged his considerable knowledge of Chinook maintenance practices to implement MSG-3 at four field units and the three Block II test aircraft.
He also served as the logistics lead for Block II test aircraft #3 at the Patuxent River, Maryland, Naval Air Station. During that time he organized the ferry flight; facilitated the sourcing and shipping of required equipment and supplies; and coordinated with the Patuxent River team for the movement of the aircraft through the various stages of electromagnetic testing.
Additionally, Mr. Meyer took advantage of intervals between testing to provide aircraft access to the Naval Air Systems (NAVAIR) team developing the Block II upgrade to the Transportable Flight Proficiency Simulator. As a result, several important changes were made to the simulator that will greatly improve the quality of training.
These actions reflect great credit upon himself and the dedication to the mission that is a cornerstone of the SPS Spirit.
