Just curious if you were aware of any job openings that may be coming up in the near future. There were none listed on your website.

I'm a mechanical engineer (Northern Illinois University) working in Rockford Illinois for a well-respected aerospace company, but previously had F-5 & F-16 crew chief experience in the Air Force and ANG (F-16 only). I also possess an A&P license.

The "F-16 Maintenance Engineer" looks intriguing.

If you know of something opening up soon, please let me know at your earliest convenience.

Thanks in advance.
