I have been with FedEx since May of 1991. I started working as an Aviation Maintenance Technician in JFK and then moved on to work in Memphis at the Avionics Line Department which handles all aircraft electronic related work before, during and after the hub turn daily. I worked there for eight years.I then sought a position to be an Avionics Technician at the Memphis Hangar 11/12 Avionics Shop. It’s here that we do all scheduled maintenance for FedEx Airbus and B727, as well as drop in maintenance for the rest of our fleet.
