Meet our team – this time, we’d like to introduce Morten Kriegsbaum who joined Direct Maintenance as a station manager for a newly re-opened station in Copenhagen. Get to know Morten better and learn about challenges and plans in his line of work!
Can you tell us a bit about your experience working in aviation?
My aviation career started with education to become B1.1 aircraft technician at SAS – I have worked at this company for total 5,5years. Additionally, my experience consists of working in the Royal Danish Airforce with F-16 Fighting Falcon, working in the general aviation industry as well as working in a business jets/turboprop company with heavy maintenance, mods, STCs in close contact with Part-21 and CAMO.
And did you know anything about Direct Maintenance prior joining?
To be fair, not really – but then I got to form my impressions about the company not from hearing about it but from seeing it from the inside. And my first impression was that it is a worldwide company with a global presence, and it is exciting to become part of it!
So far, what would you consider to be the main challenges in your line of work?
It is faced paced work – that is challenging in itself; it is global, too, thus keeping dialogue between countries and units can be challenging, but I am glad to see the company is prepared for those challenges.
What are your key goals for this year in your work?
My main goal is to turn the Copenhagen station around and make positive results for this year to start strong on the next!
Besides work, what are your hobbies?
Besides aviation, I am big motocross, Harley Davidson, and American cars fan. And I also enjoy martial arts as well as general working out!
