I like creating websites. Jetmech allows me to display some pictures and content I've acquired since I joined the USCG in 1982. I taught jet engine mechanics, helicopter maintenance and aircraft vibration analysis at the USCG aviation school in Elizabeth City NC from 1995-1999. The rest of the time I spent working on helicopters and their engines. I retired in 2014.


I flew in the HH65 as a flight mech for 10 years and the HH52A before that. I also was a crewman on the HH60J helicopter.

Here is a SAR rescue by a USCG HH60:



I knew this guy! He worked for Marathon Oil Co.
