When you are a leading cybersecurity and emerging technology company like Cape Fox Federal Integrators (CFFI), a Cape Fox Corporation (CFC) federal subsidiary, you are also a leader in training and learning management. In March 2022, Cape Fox Federal Integrators (CFFI), a Cape Fox Corporation (CFC) federal subsidiary, was awarded the Low Observable (LO) Airborne Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) contract with the United States Air Force. While this contract award showcases CFFI’s leadership within the emerging technology industry, many of our experts on the contract who have stood out have been our trainers and resource administrators. One such expert is being highlighted for his willingness, dedication, and astute knowledge and insight to provide more than is expected. James Thompson is being recognized for his contributions to the contract and presented with a Cape Fox Tinàa Award for Employee Excellence. This award is given to employees who demonstrate dedication, performance, dependability, productivity, and attitude.
James “JT” Thompson has worked with CFFI since February 2023 as the Standards and Evaluations Specialist working out of Creech Air Force Base in Nevada. JT maintains and administers all flight-testing materials. He is responsible for inputting and updating all grades and generating Air Force Form 8s, the foundation of an Aircrew member’s flight training and certification. Additionally, JT conducts monthly reviews of aircrew qualifications and ensures all unit members adhere to the Command’s established policies required for flying operations.
JT brought much experience with him when he came to CFFI. He was a Nevada test and training range threat scheduler and aircrew training and standards evaluation contractor. He retired from the U.S. Air Force, where he worked as an aviation resource manager. So, when he was recently approached to assist with additional tasks, he did more than step up to the challenge; he excelled. The customer, Brent “Gator” Healey, Capt, USAF, Chief of Standards and Evaluations, said, “We are lucky to have him on the team, and I just want to recognize him for his tremendous effort since being here. In short, I would not be able to do instruction or evaluations if not for his efforts because I would be overloaded with the daily tasks that he does proactively every day. He is now the continuity expert in the room on all matters CCV, so when we get a new shop chief in a few months, there will be no mission loss or stoppage because he is here!”
That is well-deserved praise for JT, who continues to outperform and excel. CFFI is proud to recognize an employee who is dedicated to his field and committed to the team around him. JT is a remarkable asset to the CFFI team. Thank you, JT!
