David Gilmore Senior Field Service Engineer, Urbana, Ohio

David Gilmore

David was just 18 when he got into aviation by joining the U.S. Air Force. He began by learning communication/navigation systems on the C-17, which branched off into learning the C-17, C-130, C-5 and KC-135 from nose to tail.

Today he loves aviation because it presents a new challenge every day and he says he thrives on a good challenge. That’s why his philosophy for the support he provides is “I may or may not know the answer, but if I don’t, I know the person who does.” For David, that translates to doing whatever is needed to solve a problem, no matter what it is.

His expertise is on the Primus Apex system and data loading, with engineering know-how on Primus 1000, 2000, Epic, and Elite systems, Primus II Radio, SPZ 8000/8400 and engineer NZ-2000/2010.

During his military service, he achieved Journeyman and Craftsman level (technician and inspector) on all the systems he worked on.

In his spare time, David enjoys hiking, archery, woodworking and being an inventor.
