ART

FOUNDER & CEO

Hi, I’m Art De la fuente and if you are like me, you probably worry more about your family, friends, and community than yourself. I’ve always placed a high value on helping others – it’s one of the primary reasons why I started Aircraft Maintainer credentialing agency in the first place. I am retired from active duty Air Force, I have 20 years of experience working in the aviation field, and over 12 of those years leading and managing teams of aircraft maintainers overseeing multiple aviation projects. Even though a lot of folks in my position would be focused on retirement, I don’t plan on stopping any time soon. That’s because, even as my career in the military just came to a close, my commitment to the Air Force community remains strong. I see every recruit, and every active duty service member, as part of my larger Air Force family. My mission is to Lead, Mentor and Inspire you to be your best self. I will ensure Active duty members and veterans utilize their benefits with little to zero cost out of pocket to get certifications that prove your experience so you can transition easier.
