Growing up a stone’s throw from McConnell Air Force Base, in Wichita, Kansas, itself a national aviation hub, it’s understandable how Heath’s life has revolved around aviation. As a teenager he began training as a detailing technician with the Appearance Group Incorporated, a national, full-service aircraft appearance and maintenance company. Working through the ranks, Heath assumed the company’s title of Director of Quality. At this level, he developed aircraft appearance and maintenance training programs, along with supporting procedural manuals. He also managed the company’s FAA Part 145 Repair Station. Adding to his expertise in interior and exterior aircraft maintenance, he holds professional certifications in leather repair and refinishing. In his down time you’ll often find Heath far from the airport hub-bub – definitely outdoors – but relaxing with a hefty, historical novel.
