Aircraft Fueler @ Burlington International Airport, 01/1986 - 01/1990
Peoples-Express Airlines/Continental Airlines City, STATE,
  • Performed an array of Ramp duties & Responsibilities. Mainly refueling (Fuel-Handler) when I worked for the Innotech fueling contractor at the Airport, who I also performed the De-icing of Aircraft in the winter months. I also performed Maintenance-assist, Marshaling of large passenger aircraft, and large aircraft Tug-operation in order to move & position heavy-bodied aircraft onto Taxi-ways in preparation for take-off. (Passengers aboard). I would perform "Ground to Flight-deck communications." Communicating directly w/the Captain & Co-Pilot, located in the Cockpit (AKA: Flight-deck) preparing for Take-off. I would be @ ground-level under the nose of the aircraft, speaking through headsets, prior to take-off. I would perform Aircraft Maintenance by assisting the A&P mechanic (Certified Airframe & Powerplant Mechanic) Assist w/tire & brake replacements, and other repairs. Sumping of fuel-tanks.
  • For a couple years I performed aircraft-refueling of small & large aircraft. From little 4-cyl Piper-cubs, which are "over the wing/gravity-feed fueling w/Av-gas (Aviation gas, normally 100 Octane), to larger Turbo-Prop aircraft like the twin-turbo-prop King-Air aircraft, and the larger, both private & commercial passenger jet-aircraft, like Learjet, Cessna-Citation, Gulfstream, and of course the Boeing 737 & 727 Jets that carried 85 to 215 passengers. These large "Jet" passenger-aircraft use single-point "Pressure-point" fueling (Pumped under the wing & under-pressure, 50 PSI) which is normally used on Turbine Jets & Turbo-Prop aircraft only. Jet-fuel is called JET-A, JEY-A1, JP8. Same fuel used in all our Military Aircraft. In colder-climates, like Vermont, a De-icing inhibitor additive called "Prist" is added to the Jet-fuel to slow the icing of moisture molecules & water in the Jet-fuel.
  • Oversaw fuel usage and executed replenishment procedures at the Airports "fuel-farm" when required. Requesting & receiving "Clearances" from the ATC tower to access & cross taxi-ways & runways to access the Fuel-farm. I handled the transfer of Avgas & Jet-A from the Fuel-farm into our 5,000 gal Tankers we used to refuel the aircraft. Operated & maintained Fuel-delivery "tanker" truck(s).
  • The FAA itself has overall oversight of the training & certification of all U.S. Fuel-handlers. Which requires Fuel-handlers to pass 40 hr fuel-training certification courses in Fire-safety, w/biannual re-certification training required thereafter. Nowadays, post 911, FAA laws are completely different !
  • Collaborated in development of Safer ramp procedures.
  • Recognized by management for providing exceptional safety-awareness & mechanical aptitude.
  • Improved Pilot/Captain satisfaction by finding creative solutions to pre-flight ground & ramp issues that hindered take-off schedules.
  • Improved operations by working with Pilots and ground-crew to find workable solutions.
  • Handled & documented all delegated tasks, including FAA & personal safety protocols & procedures for refueling and deicing.
  • Responsible for the RON flight, which is the last flight of the night called The RON = "Remain Over Night". We would have to tow this large aircraft, using a massive Tug, which was always a Boeing 737, safely off to the side of the main-ramp, parked, brakes set, chock landing gear wheels, sump the fuel-tanks, check tires & brakes (Assisting the Certified A&P Mechanic on-duty) We would clean the cabin, the galley, bathrooms & the cock-pit of this 737 in preparation for its next day of flights.
  • Earned an excellent reputation from the Airport, the Pilots, the Flight-attendants, for my dedication to Safety & hard work.
Shop Foreman, 01/1982 - 01/1986
Budget Rent-A-Car City, STATE,
  • This Budget Rent-A-Car franchise was owned & operated by a very respected businessman named Peter Val-Preda, who was also my Boss & friend. Mr. Val-Preda was the owner of "VAL-PREDA OLDS & CADILLAC" Dealerships in S.Burlington, Vt. and two other Dealerships in Rutland, Vt. Mr. Val-Preda was the President of the HOWARD BANK here in Burlington, Vt back in the 80's during my employ at Budget Rent-A-car. Mr. Val-Preda was a firm believer in giving people the opportunity to prove themselves. Mr. Val-Preda gave me an enormous amount of responsibilities to prove myself at the age of 18-22.
  • I trained and mentored employees (most older than me) in procedures and performance improvement strategies
  • Safely and properly operated a variety of auto-diagnostic instruments, equipment and power tools, including automobile lift, alignment rack, torches & welders, tire-machine & balancer.
  • Managed a team of 3-4 employees focused on the cleaning & the shuttling of dirty, returned rental-cars through the automated car-wash at our shop, all day, every day & every night. Managed employees in the field when shuttling cars back & forth to & from the Airport everyday. This would include supervising them in the cleaning of each & every car in our rental-fleet when the car was returned by the customer, to be returned to "Rental-ready" status. This included documenting mileage & "topping-off" w/fuel and adding an "anti-freeze" treatment in the winter.
  • A large part of my work "day" was focused on safety and efficiency, due to the constant repair of rental-cars & overseeing 3-4 employees who were non-stop operating automobiles in & out of the automated car-wash, our large parking lots and out on the main roads shuttling back & forth to the busy Airport. "Safety" was absolutely paramount. Efficiency at keeping inventory of all in-stock parts, lubricants, tires & fuel used, including out-sourced parts when needed.
  • Answered Budget Rent-A-Cars 24-hr "Emergency-Service" Hotline "Service-calls", when I was "Off-duty" at night, at home, per a personal "Pager" I carried 24 hrs a day, 7-days a week, to immediately address broken-down rentals at locations all over New-England, at any given time. (In the Winter months, it was mostly upon mountain-tops @ Ski-resorts after midnight, during snow-storms.) I would have to flat-bed and/or tow an identical replacement rental-car (If we had one. Or an upgraded car to keep customer happy after breaking down) to the customers current location (Usually a Hotel or Ski-Resort) and haul the broken-down rental-car back to the shop for repair. This flat-bed I took home w/me each & every night was a 1982 Chevy Kodiak, w/a 20' Jerr-dann rollback. This Chevy was powered by a 10.4 Liter, V8, 3208 (210HP) CAT engine, and a 5+2 tranny. (5-Speed w/a 2-Speed rear 6:14 ratio EATON differential). This Flatbed had Air-brakes, w/Maxi-Air parking-brakes. But was only 2-Wheel-drive. I carried tire-chains every winter. And after almost sliding off a couple snow-covered mountain-passes here in Vermont & NH w/a full-size Cadillac or a Lincoln Town-car on the bed, we upgraded to a new FORD F350 4X4 HD, XLT w/a "Sling & J-hook" tow-system. Which kept the cars rear tires rolling on the ground & lower center of gravity & much easier & safer to maneuver & control.
  • Handled & happily full-filled all of Budget Rent-A-cars front-desk (@ Airport) employees inquiries & issues surrounding meeting customers rental schedules & specific automobile needs.
  • Ultimately I performed all maintenance & preventive-maintenance duties. As well as larger damages & repairs on the rental-fleet.
  • Quarterly, I would be responsible for loading & hauling approx'y 10-14 of our highest-mileage rental-car fleet onto a DELAVAN, 7-place, Car-carrier trailer, pulled by a GMC cab-over, and powered by a Chevy 90 Big-block, w/a 13-Speed tranny, that required double-clutching all 13-forward gears, and haul a full-load (7-cars) from S.Burlington Vermont to a few different Auto-auctions in Schenectady & Albany NY. (Approximately 400-500 miles round-trip) This Car-carrier, Mr. Val-Preda Leased from RYDER.
  • Trained and mentored employees in procedures and performance improvement strategies.
