Company Profile


Airframe & Engine Surveyors was formed to assist the aviation and insurance communities with technical representation, loss surveys, recoveries, adjustment services and other technical aspects of their aviation core businesses. As the principal surveyor and owner, I hold an Airframe and Powerplant license, an Accredited Claims Adjuster designation and a certified aircraft appraiser designation.

With over 30 years of combined experience in the aviation and insurance industries, I am ready and able to assist all businesses with their aviation technical requirements.

My experience in aviation includes but is not limited to being the General Manager and Chief Inspector for FAA repair stations overhauling reciprocating engines, accomplishing major structural repairs to damaged general and commercial aviation aircraft of all types. I have been frequently called upon to help recover damaged aircraft and on several occasions worked as an objective third party directly with the NTSB, FAA and manufacturers during the tear down inspection of aircraft engines and/or other components considered part of a crash.

As Director of Maintenance of an FAA/JAA repair station for transport category aircraft. I have extensive experience with commercial aviation carriers and have held Part 121 required inspection authorization status with engine run-up taxi qualifications on a number of transport category aircraft. In addition to my other Part 121 qualifications, I have held the position of Heavy Maintenance Manager and Representative, a position that requires a complete knowledge of large transport category aircraft systems, structural repair criteria along with the responsibility to oversee and control the actual costs for the heavy maintenance overhaul and modification projects.

I am sure you will agree that A&E Surveyors has the experience, qualifications and resources to assist you no matter your requirements.

Respectfully Yours,

Airframe & Engine Surveyors
