Lambros Floros, 28, Manager, Aircra Maintenance, Envoy Air, Niles, IL From a young age, Lambros Floros was fascinated with airplanes and the mechanics of flight. He spent a lot of time at the airport with his dad watching takeoffs and landings. Floros received his A&P and bachelor’s degree in aviation maintenance management at Lewis University. He also completed Embraer 140/145/175 and CRJ 700 familiarization courses, GE CF34-8C/E, Rolls-Royce AE3007A, Principles of Troubleshooting, Train the Trainer, Check Runman, and various leadership courses with Envoy. He also received E-175 training from Embraer trainers and became a subject matter expert and helped with the transition of the new aircraft to the fleet. In October 2013, he joined Envoy as a mechanic focused on Embraer 140/145 and CRJ 700s. This year he was named manager for aircraft maintenance which includes the entire Chicago maintenance hub operation of 140 mechanics, crew chiefs/tech crew chiefs, 12 supervisors, and 70 aircraft with 200 flights a day. Nominated by Minnette Velez, Communications Specialist, Envoy Air: “From the beginning, Lambros Floros was known as an exceptional mechanic. His aircraft knowledge and troubleshooting ability were many years beyond his experience level. In his current role as manager on duty, he continues to do a great job working problem aircraft in the hub to keep our airline operating on time with minimal disruptions to our customers. Floros is always willing and able to help out his team and spends quality time during the day working with the crew chiefs and line mechanics to quickly resolve maintenance issues on quick aircraft turnarounds. During his time as an administrative supervisor, he worked tirelessly to strengthen the tooling inventory, working closely with avionics technicians and technical crew chiefs to ensure the aircraft maintenance tooling needed to improve our ability to troubleshoot and fix maintenance issues on our fleet was readily available. He’s also been instrumental in the acquisition of new equipment to make our operation more efficient. Through his contribution, he supported the development of a new training tracking program and the creation of a new training management office.” Floros gives back to the industry by being a mentor to new supervisors and mechanics that are hired for Chicago. “I take them under my wing and help them to navigate their own success. I try to facilitate positive working relationships amongst my team and the many other workgroups we interface with daily. “My career goals are to continue to grow, learn, and be a good mentor. If I can help just one person, that’s a success.” Congratulations Lambros Floros On your well-deserved recognition, earning the AMT Next Gen 40 Under 40 award!
