To understand the biggest factor behind FEAM’s esteemed reputation, one would only have to look at the quality of people we employ. People like Jonathan Lee who, just like our company, has grown exponentially in just one year of joining our family. We’re proud to shine a spotlight on his unique career path and his story so far.

 

What attracted you to work for FEAM after 20 years in the Marine Corps?

 

The largest factor that attracted me to want to work for FEAM was their belief in me. They understood I was more than just a retired Marine who had worked helicopters for 15+ years. The leadership of FEAM, some of them being veterans themselves, saw the “soft skills” and leadership skills that the Marine Corps had spent more than a decade developing in me. This vision, and the true feeling of family that I felt from the start with FEAM, was critical after leaving an organization that is so heavily based around an almost fanatical level of brotherhood like the Marine Corps.

 

How has your life changed after working at FEAM for a year?

 

Over the past year, I feel like I have peeled back a curtain on a world that I thought I knew. Getting to learn and see how not only the aviation cargo industry but also how the passenger side of aviation truly works and flows has been an amazing learning experience. I have felt myself grow as a mechanic and a leader at an amazing rate by adapting the leadership methods the military taught me to lead my stations. Going from a single station with about 18 mechanics to 3 stations with over 60 mechanics has forced that development in myself at a rate I didn’t know I could do. Honestly, outside of my combat deployments directly supporting troops on the ground, this past year has been some of the most rewarding work I have done by getting to see the stations grow, to see FEAM grow, and to see our customers thrive in a very dynamic setting because of our support.

 

You’re a huge proponent of networking. What’s the best way to start connecting with people in your desired industry?

 

The best way I have found to network within your desired industry is through LinkedIn. Utilizing this platform, you don’t have to go out and send a ton of invites. You will get much better traction by having a relevant core group of connections that you can interact with, and then through those interactions, you will open a door by connecting with a great number of other people within multiple industries. If you find someone within your desired industry that you feel a connection would greatly serve you, then actually put some thought and effort into the connection request and don’t just send the basic default message.

 

What advice would you give to fellow servicemen transitioning into the aviation industry?

 

For starters, get your A&P certificate as soon as you can after you’ve met 36 months of the experience requirement. Even if you plan to make a career in the military, it is the most critical piece. The longer you have the certificate, the better it looks on a resume. There are awesome programs in all of the branches to assist in this, so take advantage of it while you can. Also, the military is great at teaching us to specialize in our narrow little field. DON’T! Get out there and learn with every shop on the line from avionics to airframes, flight equipment to maintenance control, and even the supply side. If you get the chance to learn a new platform, jump at it! Being able to understand both fixed- and rotary-wing aircraft is a very sought-after skill set outside of the military.

 

Since you joined the FEAM family, you’ve added two more stations and started your AS in Aviation Maintenance. What does the future look like for you?

 

I plan to continue working towards completing my AS in Aviation Maintenance and then possibly looking at progressing to a BS in Aviation Maintenance Management. On the FEAM side, I’m continuing to develop and train the team of mechanics that I have at all 3 stations to provide the highest level of support we can. As new opportunities present themselves within FEAM, I plan to take advantage of them to continue my own development and learning.

MIAMI, FL (March 22nd, 2021) FEAM is proud to announce their latest facility launches at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) and Austin-Bergstrom International Airport (AUS). As the e-commerce space continues to scale exponentially, FEAM’s agile approach has allowed them to quickly meet and exceed the demand of increased air cargo activity.

 

Their new outpost at LAX will provide line maintenance, On-Wing AOG support, structures and avionics support, and engine stand conversion technical support.

The addition of FEAM’s Austin-Bergstrom presence marks their fourth line maintenance station in Texas. With this location serving as a regional hub for the e-commerce giant, Amazon, it was a strategic choice for increased line maintenance, structures, and avionics support.

 

Chief Operating Officer, Dan Allawat comments, “It is a tremendous testament to our team that we continue to pursue nationwide expansion without compromising our high standard of excellence in customer service. With an increase in tech companies relocating to Austin, and the importance of Los Angeles as a gateway to so many international destinations, we feel that both locations are pivotal in FEAM’s continued growth initiatives and positioning of our best-in-class advanced aircraft repair capabilities.”

As part of our series about “The Future Of Air Travel”, I had the pleasure of interviewing Fred Murphy.

Fred Murphy holds the position of Founder & President for FEAM Maintenance/Engineering. Prior to joining FEAM, Fred held various positions in maintenance and engineering departments at American Airlines, US Airways, FedEx and Trans World Airlines. Fred served in the US Air Force as a noncommissioned officer and holds an Associate Degree for Aircraft Maintenance Management, a Federal Aviation Administration airframe and power plant license, Federal Communications Commission restricted radio operators license and a Federal Aviation Administration private pilot/ instrument rating.

Thank you so much for joining us in this interview series! Before we dive in, our readers would love to get to know you a bit better. Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path?

When I was growing up, I had an uncle that worked for an airline called Western Airlines at Los Angeles International Airport. When I was about 10 years old, he took me to work with him one day and I was blown away from being around all the airplanes and the airport activity going on around them. I think that day is when I fell in love with aviation. Later, when I graduated high school, I joined the U.S. Air Force and my love for aircraft continued to grow. I somehow knew at that young age and seeing those airplanes up close at LAX airport, that I wanted to be part of that industry as I got older. I have been very fortunate to turn that early passion into a business.

MIAMI, FL (February 16, 2021) – FEAM is excited to announce their new partnership with Sunaero-Americas. FEAM is the fastest growing provider of airline line maintenance and engineering services to a variety of domestic and international air carriers flying transport planes throughout the country. Sunaero, the premier fuel tank and fuel systems repair specialists, will provide on-site fuel system repair services at the new FEAM MRO hangar located at Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky (CVG) International Airport that caters to the growing air cargo fleet.

 

 

“FEAM’s strategic partnerships with aviation technical specialists like Sunaero has solidified our company as the leading provider of line maintenance in the MRO industry,” said Scott Diaz, Director of Business Development. “Reducing the recovery time of out of service aircraft and improving fleet performance of our airline partners is a core initiative at FEAM, resulting in continued expansions and deploying line support services to over 28 airports across the country this year.”

FEAM opened the 103,000-square-foot and $19 million hangar at the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport (CVG) early last year. The facility created the need for more than 100 high-paying aircraft mechanic jobs and supports the growing global logistics network at the airport. The hangar accommodates all narrow-body aircraft, as well as the Boeing B747 aircraft.

 

“At Sunaero-Americas, we strive to put quality and customer satisfaction first, and we are proud to share this commitment with FEAM, said Havan Tucker, Sunaero CEO. This partnership offers an opportunity for both FEAM and SUNAERO to better serve our valued customers.”

 

 

Sunaero utilizes helium tracer gas technology to pressurize the fuel system which allows for rapid identification of the leak point with the use of helium leak detection sensors. Repairs are then conducted timely and once completed, helium tracer gas is again used to re-pressurize the fuel system and confirm the leak point is repaired. This is accomplished without re-fueling the aircraft until after the leak point is confirmed repaired and therefore saves time and money to return the aircraft to service.

 

FEAM is committed to the highest levels of safety, reliability, and customer service. The collaboration between FEAM and Sunaero at CVG will greatly enhance the ability to support fleets from around the country and deliver the highest levels of service to their customers.
