Greenwich Aerogroup Names New Company President and Senior Executive


Greenwich AeroGroup announced that its Senior Vice President of Parts Distribution Warren Persavich will lead NASAM Inc. in the coming year.


In September, NASAM Founder, President and CEO Aki Sato announced he would be stepping down at the end of the year after 31 years with the company. NASAM is an international distributor of high tech electronics such as military/defense equipment, spacecraft sub­system and components, aircraft support equipment and products and telecom­related components.

Reference/Long Line course with the addition of the “Air Con” and “Pole in the Hole” exercises.


“In order for a pilot to suc­ cessfully complete our pro­ gram, they are now tasked with picking up and setting an Air Conditioning Unit onto bolts. The lead up to that is placing a simulated Power Pole into a hole as well as our basic exercises, which include flying Medical litters, nets and barrel slings,” said LAH’s Chief Pilot Part 133, Andre Hutchings.


“We spent a great deal of time developing these new exercises in order to introduce potential Utility/LL Pilots to some of the actual flying regi­ mens they may face in their careers. To watch a pilot come to us with zero VR/LL experi­ ence at the beginning of the course and walk away at the end having set an Air Con unit on bolts and a power pole in place is truly awesome – this exercise is the real thing!” Ground Crew Manager, Trevor Stanley, states. ◆
