FRC East workers to receive national recognition

Published: Wednesday, August 28, 2013 at 19:06 PM.

Capps has worked at FRC East for 33 years, 22 of which have been on the V-22.

“The whole time I’ve been on the V-22 program my biggest concern was the fleet, getting the right tools, the right components and getting wiring out there that will not cause them heartaches and headaches, 24-7,” he said. “That’s what the depot’s here for. That’s why the engineering fleet support teams are here, to make their jobs easier so they can do what they are meant to do, go fly aircraft and not just do maintenance on aircraft.”

Capps said that the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter uses composite hex fittings exclusively, and there is the potential for the new tool to someday be used on that aircraft as well.
