About Sean Embler

About Sean Embler

Sean started his aviation career in the United States Marine Corps. In June 2007, he attended school in Pensacola, FL for Aviation Structural Mechanics Common Core and during this time he was promoted to Private First Class. He was transferred to Norfolk, VA to attend classes on Servo Cylinder Test Station Operator/Maintainer In-termediate Maintenance and A/F 27T-10 Hydraulic Component Test Stand Intermedi-ate Maintenance, in which he graduated at the top of his class and was meritoriously promoted to Lance Corporal. He utilized the information from these training classes to interpret maintenance manuals, service bulletins, and other specifications to determine the feasibility and method of maintaining, repairing, replacing malfunctioning or damaged hydraulic and various ground support equipment components.

In August 2008, he was deployed on the Naval Vessel, USS Iwo Jima and in November 2008 was promoted to Corporal. When he returned from his deployment, he spent his time as the day shift supervisor for the Intermediate Level Hydraulic/Pneumatic shop handling maintenance meetings to report updates, delegating work tasks, and overseeing junior Marines professional and personal growth. Sean was proud of the mentoring that he was able to contribute to the junior Marines. At the time the shop he was working in handled all the maintenance needs for the entire flight line which had 8 Squadrons. In July 2009, he was selected for the Nondestructive Inspection Tech Class where he was taught and tested in the basic knowledge and hands on applications of 5 methods of NDT (Dye Penetrant, Mag Particle, Eddy Current, Ultrasound and Radiography).

Another deployment came in January 2010 to Djibouti, Africa and as the only NDT tech for the Marine Corps unit, he was assigned to supporting four CH-53’s and ground support equipment. After his deployment he was back at work helping support an entire flight line of various components and aircrafts mostly the V-22’s (Osprey). During this time period he became a Shop Collateral Duty Inspector (CDI) and received his NC USMAPS NDT Professional and Kindred Journeyman Certification and Promoted to Sergeant before medically retiring in 2011.

After returning home he started working for Structural Testing Systems as the NDT lead technician, NAS 410 Level II in 5 methods (Dye Penetrant, Mag Particle, Eddy Current, Ultrasound and Radiography). During his 4 years as an NDT tech for STS he utilized his skills from the Marine Corps to quickly adapt to the Business Aviation Industry and its many varying aspects of customers, schedules, aircrafts, and components. He has provided inspections on variety of aircrafts (Airbus, Augusta, Beech Jets, Boeing’s, Caravan’s, Cessna’s, CH-47D, CH-53, Challenger’s, Embraer’s, Global’s, Gulfstream’s, Hawker’s, Lear’s, Legacy 600’s, MD902, Osprey’s (V-22), King Air’s, Phenom’s, Pilatus’s, Sikorsky’s, SNJ’s, Wheel Assemblies).

Since March of 2016 Sean arrived in new role as the NDT Manager at Jet East Aviation. The NDT Manager will work closely with all areas of the company, partner with you our AOG techs, and build the organization structure of the NDT department. Since gaining this new and exciting role he has been certified to NAS 410 Level II in 4 methods (Dye Penetrant, Mag Particle, Eddy Current, Ultrasound and Radiography). The NDT department is now capable of performing various portable Liquid “Dye” Penetrant, Magnetic Particle, and Eddy Current, Ultrasound and Radiography inspections. Sean looks forward to working with every-one, and being part of the team.

Sean is available to answer any of your questions, so give him a call and welcome him to the team of Jet East.

<strong><u/>Liquid “Dye” Penetrant Testing (PT)</strong></u>

Liquid “Dye” Penetrant Testing (PT)

is widely used NDT method for detection of high sensitivity to small surface defects. Produces a flaw indication that is much larger and easier for the eye to detect.

  • Low Cost
  • Aerosol spray cans make it very portable
  • Few material limitations- metallic and nonmetallic, magnetic and nonmagnetic, and conductive and nonconductive maybe inspected

<strong><u/>Magnetic Particle Testing (MT) </strong></u>

Magnetic Particle Testing (MT)

uses magnetic fields and small magnetic particles to detect flaws in components. Components do have to be ferromagnetic.

  • Fast and relatively easy to apply
  • Able to detect surface and near-surface defects
  • Very sensitive for finding cracks: provides a visual picture of the crack
  • Very portable and adaptable to many conditions

<strong><u/>Eddy Current Testing (ET) </strong></u>

Eddy Current Testing (ET)

involves the application of electromagnetic energy to evaluate the condition of a range of test object. Is fast and effective.

  • Inspects complex parts and shapes
  • Portable equipment and Minimal part preparation
  • Can detect surface and subsurface cracks, corrosion, and changes in conductivity.

<strong><u/>Ultrasonic Testing (UT) / Bond Testing </strong></u>

Ultrasonic Testing (UT) / Bond Testing

uses high frequency sound energy to conduct examinations and make measurements.

  • Portable equipment
  • It is sensitive to both surface and subsurface discontinuities.
  • It has other uses, such as thickness measurement, in addition to flaw detection.

<strong><u/>Radiographic “X-Ray” Testing (RT) </strong></u>

Radiographic “X-Ray” Testing (RT)

is utilized to test a variety of products such as welds, castings, forgings, honeycomb, and fabrications due to its penetration and absorption capabilities.

  • Can be used with most materials
  • Provides a permanent visual image
  • Reveals the internal nature of image

We can do in house inspections or we can provide onsite NDT at your facility/location.
