2/27/2013 - LANGLEY AIR FORCE BASE, Va. -- No matter if they're flying high in the skies, turning a wrench on the flight line or providing parts and fuel, Langley's Airmen continually prove they are among the best.

Maintainers in the 1st and 192d Fighter Wings, along with members of the 633rd Logistics Readiness Squadron, were evaluated by Air Combat Command's Logistics Compliance Assessment Program team Feb. 8-13. LCAP assesses logistics processes and regulatory compliance while Airmen carry out their day-to-day missions.

"It ensures our personnel are accomplishing their missions in a safe, compliant, and repeatable manner," said Chief Master Sgt. Darren Preiss, 1st Aircraft Maintenance Squadron chief.

A score of 80 percent or greater is required to pass an LCAP, which is considered the toughest evaluation maintainers and logisticians can face.

"The fighter wing received an overall 91.29 percent 'Excellent' rating, with the 1st Maintenance Group earning a score of 91.44, the highest score of the last 58 maintenance group inspections," Preiss said. "We were told it was 'the best score the team has given in over three years.'"

The 633rd LRS received an overall outstanding score of 95.09 during the inspection, the best score for a LRS in over a year and half.
The job of the AMXS is to produce combat ready aircraft. Maj. Carl Wilson, 1st AMXS commander, oversees more than 350 Airmen who make that happen.

"This inspection just showcased how we perform on a day-to-day basis," Wilson said. "I'm extremely proud of the Airmen in my unit; they proved they are best in the combat Air Forces."

Now that they've taken the time to reflect on their accomplishment, the maintenance group and their partners in LRS will continue to move forward and ensure they are ready to perform at moment's notice, said Wilson.

"I'm very honored to work with and lead such a great group of professionals," said Wilson. "The group here is the most motivated and hardworking group of people I've worked with in my 24 years in the Air Force, and they continue to make me proud on a daily basis."

Preiss echoed Wilson's feelings.

"Our world is never idle; we're always looking at the next challenge," said Preiss. "Make no mistake - we are always ready to fly, fight and win!"
