rifter Vasser, who graduated from Spartan College, previously
worked in Phoenix, AZ on Bell 204, 205, 212 helicopters and is
currently overhauling components from Bell 204, 205, 212, 412 aircraft and various Airbus components. He has also completed training for Bell 412 Field Maintenance and Overhaul course. Previously,
he was in the Marines from 2006 to 2011 as a helicopter dynamic
component repair mechanic.
"Drifter Vasser is a hard working, well-liked individual who gets
along with all his co-workers and anyone else he comes into contact
with, explained Brandon Keesee, Vasser's supervisor and overhaul
shop coordinator at Uniflight Global. "He is truly someone who
would give the shirt off his back to help someone else out and is
always willing to work or teach someone something he knows."
Keesee says Vasser is a young man who is always on time, has come
from a Military background and is adapting quickly to the civilian
side of the business. "Drifter will be a great asset in aviation going
forward," noted Keesee. "He wants to learn and become the best he
can at everything he does. These type of individuals are the ones
you look for when you are teaching the next generation coming up.

He will be a leader and influencer in a good
way for everyone around him as he grows in
aviation. His safe work ethic and attention to
detail will help him to excel in anything he
pursues in his career going forward."
Drifter has only been working at Uniflight
Global for one year. He was hired to work the
overhaul shop where he had prior experience.
"In his time here at Uniflight he has not only
showed his knowledge but has also excelled in learning different
aircraft models of components," explained Joe Noland, Uniflight's
director of maintenance. "He is also willing to work in the hangar
where he has gained experience on Airbus, Bell, Leonardo and MD
helicopters. Drifter is a big asset to the Uniflight family." Vasser's
next career goal is to get his Inspection Authorization.
