Hello to Martin Klein Follmann, Senior Engineer based in Esbjerg.
Before we start, can you tell us 3 Fun Facts about you:
1. Operates best on coffee
2. I haven’t had my coffee yet…
Can you tell us a little bit about your background and who you are?
I began my journey in the aviation industry back in 2001, when I joined the Danish Airforce. For nearly 7 years, I honed my skills and expertise by starting out as an Aircraft Mechanic and later I transitioned into the role of maintenance coordinator. In the final 2 years of my tenure, I had the privilege of serving as a type training instructor.
After my time with the Danish Airforce, I embarked on a new chapter in my career, working with esteemed organizations such as Air Alpha, Air Greenland, Bel Air, and, most recently, Dancopter/NHV. Over the past 9 years, I have dedicated my efforts to these renowned companies, consistently contributing my knowledge and passion to their aviation operations.
What led you to pursue a career in Aviation?
Aircrafts have always held a profound fascination for me, igniting a passion that continues.
What do you find exciting about the industry and what is something specific about your role at NHV that you love doing?
Each day brings its own unique adventure, and I find immense joy in the dynamic blend of collaboration among pilots, the operations teams, and engineers within the hangar. Together, we harmoniously orchestrate our efforts to deliver exceptional service and cater to the diverse needs of our esteemed customers.
How do you define success?
Success is created outside of work: work to live and don’t live to work.
What are some of the things that you like to do, outside of work?
In my free time I am practicing target shooting. In the winter we train indoor using the 15m with air rifle and cal.22 rifle, and in the summertime we are outside on the 50m range cal.22.
What are some words of advice you would give to others who are considering pursuing a career in Aviation?
Go. For. It.
