UPS, ST Engineering training pact

PENSACOLA, Fla. - With maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) jobs in Pensacola expected to increase, ST Engineering and UPS announced a joint training program. The contract signed Thursday provides for a Pensacola-based program for employment, advancement opportunities and advanced training to mechanics who would live and work in Pensacola while completing the three-year program. The Aircraft Maintenance Pathways Training Program is expected to begin this year with its first 30 students, according to Stephen Lim, president of ST Engineering Aerospace America. To be eligible a person already must be an FAA-certified aviation maintenance technician and hold an Airframe and Powerplant Certificate. That means the students will have already completed an 18-month program at an FAA-accredited school. UPS agreed to send company representatives to headhunt at FAA-accredited schools, Lim said, looking for recent graduates who could be considered top candidates to fill the ranks of the new Pensacola-based training program. ST Engineering has a separate contract with UPS to perform maintenance on the shipping company's planes. Project Titan is the city's project to add three new hangars to the current one-hangar ST Engineering MRO  campus at Pensacola International Airport. It's projected to create 1,325 new jobs at the complex. (Source: Pensacola News Journal, 10/14/21)

Test management now test evaluation

Following the inactivation of the 53rd Test Management Group at Eglin Air Force Base, Fla., the Air Force activated the 753rd Test and Evaluation Group Oct. 1, 2021. The transition from a “test management” to “test and evaluation” organization is in recognition of the group’s active mission of combined test management and execution.

NASA completes test series

STENNIS SPACE CENTER, Miss. - NASA marked the completion of an RS-25 single-engine Retrofit-2 test series at Stennis Space Center Sept. 30. A full-duration hot fire of RS-25 developmental engine No. 0528 on the A-1 Test Stand culminated a seven-test series to support development and production of new engines for the agency’s Space Launch System (SLS) rocket on future missions. Operators fired the engine for more than eight minutes (500 seconds), the same time required during an actual launch. The test series provided valuable information to Aerojet Rocketdyne, lead contractor for the SLS engines, as it produces engines for use after the Artemis IV mission to the Moon. Operators collected hot fire data to demonstrate and verify various engine capabilities, and to evaluate new engine components manufactured with cutting-edge and cost-saving technologies and reduce operational risk.

AFSOC eyes amphibious MC-130

U.S. Air Force Special Operations Command (AFSOC) is looking to equip their workhorse plane to operate on land and water. AFSOC said this week that it will conduct a rapid prototyping effort to increase the "runway independence and expeditionary capacity" of its MC-130J by developing "a removable amphibious float modification." The $114 million aircraft has advanced navigation and radar systems that allow it to operate in unfriendly territory, but the MC-130J Commando II Amphibious Capability, as the effort is called, will allow it to support operations at sea and in near-shore areas, according to AFSOC. AFSOC is working with the Air Force Research Lab's Strategic Development Planning and Experimentation directorate and with private industry. The command plans to use a five-phase rapid prototyping schedule that will allow it to conduct an operational capability demonstration in 17 months.
