Meet Terry, he began his aviation career in 1965
After serving in the military, Terry began his commercial aviation career in 1965 as a maintenance professional working for industry leaders, including Southwest Airlines, Continental Airlines, Trans World Airlines (TWA) and Texas International Airlines. With his vast airline experience, several years of running a repair station and his understanding of the industry needs, he incorporated Airline Component Parts (ACP) in 1993 and started operating it as an FAA-certified 145 repair station in 1994. Now with ACP as one of Aereos’ four companies and with Terry’s assistance, the company has expanded to specialize in the development of DER repair solutions focused on high-value expandable components. Terry earned a B.S. in Engineering and is an FAA A&P licensed mechanic. Terry was honored in May of 2010 with the Charles Taylor “Master Mechanic” Award by the Department of Transportation Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) for 50 years of dedicated service, technical expertise, professionalism and many outstanding maintenance contributions to further the cause of aviation safety. This elite award has been given to fewer than 100 people in Texas and fewer than 1,500 overall.
