Maintenance specialist Mike Beecroft joined the GEICO Skytypers maintenance technicians team in 2016.
Mike’s grandfather was a B-17 pilot during WWII and his father and uncle both have their private pilot’s licenses. Given Mike’s family history in aviation, choosing to pursue his Airframe & Powerplant license was an obvious choice.
Mike received his A&P certification from Redstone College in Broomfield, CO and accepted his first professional position servicing Lear Jet with International Jet in nearby Centennial, CO. Mike later relocated to Lincoln, Nebraska to accept a position with Duncan Aviation maintaining Falcon Jets.
Accepting a position with the GEICO Skytypers maintenance crew has afforded Mike an opportunity to fulfill a dream to repair and maintain vintage aircraft while also allowing him to return to his hometown on Long Island.
