General management and oversight of operations will be provided by Flight Avionics from corporate headquarters near Orlando, Florida. The day-to-day operations will be managed by a local site manager that will be hired and trained by Flight Avionics. We have experienced great success with hiring retired military personnel to manage and staff the exhibits. We typically hire 4-6 retired military personnel who work either full time or part time schedules. Our operations management personnel will provide on-site hiring and training for the exhibit staff during the installation process and into initial operations of the exhibit to the public. The institution will receive a detailed Profit Statement of the exhibit operations each month from Flight Avionics.
Flight Avionics has a reputation of providing the most reliable equipment in the industry. It is common for operational exhibits to experience less than 24 hours of down time in each operational year. For emergency service Flight Avionics provides 24 hour, 365 days per year maintenance support to on-site exhibit operations. We stock a complete inventory of replacement parts in Florida and maintain an extensive spare parts inventory at exhibit locations. Preventative equipment maintenance is performed on a daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly, semi-annual, and annual basis. Flight Avionics employs a Technical Director who oversees all on-site maintenance personnel. We typically hire a retired military staff member with extensive military equipment maintenance experience to provide our on-site maintenance. The Flight Avionics Technical Director will be on-site when the equipment first arrives and will remain throughout the installation and initial operations. The on-site maintenance technician will be hired prior to arrival of the exhibit. This technician will then receive hands-on training from our Technical Director throughout the installation process. Flight Avionics maintains exceptionally skilled maintenance capabilities in the corporate office and on-site. We are seasoned professionals in the maintenance of Virtual Reality equipment.
