As commanding general of the U.S. Army Materiel Command, Gen. John Coburn (Ret.) oversaw one of the largest commands in the Army, directly responsible for activities ranging from acquisition to research and development, program management, and contracting for the Army with an annual operating budget of more than $39 billion and operations in more than 28 countries. Today, as chairman and CEO of Vision Technologies Systems Inc. (VT Systems) and VT Mobile Aerospace Engineering (VT MAE), his purview is somewhat smaller but his responsibilities are no less critical for the numerous aviation customers it serves.

For more than a quarter-century, VT MAE has concentrated on keeping aircraft in the skies through a comprehensive suite of maintenance and modification services. The company has performed conversions to aircraft for customers ranging from FedEx to the Royal New Zealand Air Force, but no matter whether their aircraft carries freight or passengers, the expectations they have for VT MAE are high. “They define quality in a number of ways, not the least of which is reliability,” Coburn says. “When we return an aircraft to them, they are placing them back into their fleets, whether that be passenger revenue service or cargo transport. It is of the utmost importance that once an aircraft has been serviced at VT MAE, it requires no additional unplanned maintenance, or out-of-service event. That is the quality our customers demand, and that is the reliability we pride ourselves on.”
