LACKLAND AIR FORCE BASE, TEXAS — The Air Education and Training Command Headquarters Maintenance Standardization and Evaluation Team will be at Lackland March 10 to perform the inspection of aircraft, trainer and munitions maintenance activities within the command.

In preparation for the MSET, Team Lackland held a foreign object damage walk March 6. The walk featured volunteers from Boeing, who also assisted in the cleanup.

"We had 350 people show up," said Rick Kopp, chief of quality assurance for the 37th Operations Support Squadron. "It was a total Team Lackland effort, including the civilians from Boeing. We really appreciated everyone's help and support."

An in-brief will occur between the MSET and the 37th Training Wing leadership March 10 at 8 a.m.

The MSET inspectors will meet with their functional counterparts the same morning in the team work center located at Hangar 1610.

Functional managers from the 37th OSS, 37th Logistics Readiness Squadron and 318th Training Squadron will escort the inspectors to their respective work centers that morning.

"These inspectors will be evaluating all aspects of aircraft maintenance training and how we maintain our support equipment, such our tools," said Capt. Jose Martinez, 318th TRS. "We are 100 percent ready for their inspection."

The team will conduct their inspections of the squadrons through March 13.

The 37th TRW out brief, which will highlight the team's findings, will occur on March 14 at 2 p.m.
