Focus on the Interior
The Hero Project also included refurbishing
the seats and overhead bins, new sidewalls
and ceilings, new cabinetry and new coverings throughout the aircraft. "We did not
deal with the mission-system work," King
explained. "Our job was the visual things
inside the plane and to add some electronics
so they could plug in computers and other
electronics. We didn't do any high-end 'Top
Secret' kind of stuff."

In the Army Now
King reports the best way to know you're
doing an outstanding job is for more to work
to come your way. And, King Aerospace's
division in Ardmore recently experienced
just that when they expanded its contractor logistics support (CLS) work for the U.S.
Army's Special Electronic Mission Aircraft

(SEMA) fleet. "This
represents a significant increase
in our SEM Aspecific maintenance personnel
and high-level aircraft services," said
Greg Mitchell, King
Aerospace, vice
Wayne Jamroz
president of government services.
For this work, King Aerospace serves as
a subcontractor for Northrop Grumman
and provides life-cycle services for a fleet
of 75 highly modified King Air (C-12), De
Havilland Canada Dash (DHC-7) and Dash
8 (DHC-8) turboprop aircraft used for intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance
(ISR). Northrop Grumman awarded the

contract to King Aerospace in 2017 and
extended it to 2026 in February.
King Aerospace performs SEMA work at
Biggs Army Airfield in El Paso, Texas; Camp
Humphreys in South Korea; and other U.S.
Army deployments worldwide.
"This work adds to our growing portfolio of ISR mission support," King said. "It's
an honor to apply our know-how to such a
mission-critical program."
King oversaw the project's expansion and
hiring of additional team members. He now
devotes a portion of his time to fostering
the King Aerospace "no excuses" culture
and helping team members understand
their purpose. "Having the right expertise
and experience is only part of our success,"
King explained. "The wins happen when you
have a dedicated and efficient team pulling
in the same direction."
