As this week draws to a close it's exciting to report two mechanic milestones:
First, David Mozombite has completed his thirty months of service with MMS and gained 4,800 hours of aviation maintenance experience toward taking the FAA exams to receive an Airframe & Powerplant (A&P) mechanic's certificate. David plans to take the A&P exams next month.
David and Amy are in application with South America Mission (SAM) and hope to serve as a maintenance specialist family with SAM's flight program in Bolivia.
Second, Bat-Enkh has just passed the FAA exams to receive his Inspection Authorization (IA). Bat-Enkh previously served with MMS for six months in 2004. At that time he came over from Mongolia to finish the preparation process to test for his A&P certificate. Passing the exams, he then served in Tanzania for two years before returning to full-time service as a maintenance specialist in Mongolia.
With the required years of experience as an A&P under his belt, Bat-Enkh returned to MMS three weeks ago to study and take the IA exam. Having passed the exam, he'll soon return to Mongolia where his IA will greatly benefit their flight program as well as the broader general aviation community in that part of the world.
Thank you for being part of the lives of both of these men through your gifts and prayers for MMS Aviation.
