Sheppard Profile: Jet Engine Mishap Investigation

Local News

When engine mishaps happen on an aircraft., it’s important to have someone there to assess the situation to prevent it from happening again.

Sheppard’s Jet Engine Mishap Investigation course is there to prepare airmen to be the first on the scene.

The nine-day class also gives airmen access three different investigations involving damaged engines.  

Captain Jeffrey Rodriguez said he came to Sheppard solely for this course.

CV-22 Maintenance Unit Officer, Captain Jeffrey Rodriguez told us, “Nine days is not a lot to give up to be this much more knowledgeable. I think this is probably the best two weeks since I’ve been in the Air Force where I’ve learned a lot in a very short amount of time, and it’s gonna stay with me.” 

Jet Engine Mishap instructor, David Kanauer said after the first day, every student has a better understanding of how an engine operates. 

He said, “By the last day, they are out there and they are looking at it, and their asking intelligent questions and they’re saying ‘yeah this is what happened because of what I’m seeing’.” 

He finished by saying, Sheppard has offered this course since 1993 and they offer this course to other branches in the military.

Next week, we’ll take a look at those in security forces, those teaching other airmen how to be proficient with their weapons.
