You help fill valuable roles on the mission field
For many years, Jon Damon, the JAARS maintenance training coordinator, has dreamed of developing a mentorship program for aviation maintenance specialists. His own maintenance training for overseas service was a bit haphazard, and he had to pick up training in bits and pieces. Jon has longed for a place where mentorship can help people work through their weaknesses. And this dream has become a reality!
With help from people like you giving to JAARS Aviation Training Solutions, JAARS has begun a JATO (JAARS Assisted Take-Off) program for maintenance specialists. Now, if maintenance specialists who come to JAARS hoping to attend Pre-Field Orientation (PFO) learn they need more experience, they can stay and take the JATO program.
Unlike the three-month PFO course, JATO is a highly individualized program, tailored to each person’s needs. It will equip maintenance specialists with the skills and confidence they need to oversee projects on the mission field. Well-trained maintenance specialists will then be available to fill valuable roles in mission organizations around the world, keeping mission aircraft safe and reliable.
