A little about the owner of Aviation Maintenance Professionals and his career in aviation

Joe Yezek is an AP/IA licensed aircraft mechanic who graduated Embry Riddle Aeronautical University (ERAU) in 1995 with a B.S. in Aircraft Maintenance Management. He spent his first three years after ERAU working on commercial heavy jets at PBIA, for several different airlines at an on call contracted business (Waner Aviation). After PBIA Joe decided to move on to  General Aviation, for a more down to earth interaction with the aviation community. Stuart Florida's Witham Field Aircraft Service was his new home in aviation. He worked at a Certified Repair Station which also became a Cessna Service Center- for about 15 years until the passing of his boss and mentor Ron Letourneau. After that Joe opened his own business initially at Okeechobee Airport and shortly after moved the business to Fort Pierce.

During the 15 years at Witham Field, Joe became very involved in writing and rewriting the repair station manuals as the FAA rules evolved. He's gone to the Cessna factory in Wichita, KS and Bend, OR and personally seen the building and testing process of the new Cessna aircraft. He's been to the Cessna factory training courses for Garmin 1000, Ice Shield deice boot installation, Michelin Tire training, and several other courses all required over the years. The repair station he worked for at Witham Field also owned it's own flight school and charter business. Because of these experiences, Joe is familiar with the needs of getting your flight school or charter aircraft fixed in a timely, legal manner.

The most common airplanes worked on over the last 18 years have been the Piper Navajo, Cessna 310, 172, Beech Bonanza, Piper Cherokee, Saratoga and quite a few other similar models.

At Embry Riddle, they don't just teach you how to change a spark plug, or replace tires etc. -At Embry Riddle they have entire classes dedicated to how a spark plug is designed, how it works, how every intricate part of the engine is designed and connected, and how every part of the engine works before during and after the spark plug fires. -Then they show you how to maintain it- but by using the manufacturers books, the proper way. Every part of the aircraft has a specific class at Embry Riddle. So when your maintenance is performed by a mechanic who graduated there, you get the peace of mind you would expect to have each time you fly your aircraft.
