King Kulture isn’t just lip service. It’s a set of deeply engrained beliefs that the King Aerospace team demonstrates through their daily actions and words. Recently, team members from around the world gathered at our campus in Ardmore, OK. The farthest came 6,756 miles – from South Korea.
Founder and Chairman Jerry King laughs and says the crew was riding a “bucking bronco” trying to maximize the day-and-a-half shoot. The team gathered on Monday afternoon, July 19 with a two-hour training on servant leadership at JAKE’s Joint. They then participated in rapid-fire, don’t-overthink-your-responses, tell-it-like-it-is interviews. Most are folks who seldom speak on camera. Many were nervous. But you could also tell they appreciated the opportunity to share. To say what they really think. In their own words.
They were asked simple questions – like “What makes King different from the competition?” or “What does it mean to you to be part of the King team?”
Before sunrise the next morning, a 25-person team assembled outside the main hangar, where a mammoth American flag served as backdrop. Team members included leadership and representatives from Biggs Army Airfield, El Paso, TX; Fort Hood, Killeen, TX; Fort Huachuca, AZ; Hunter Army Airfield, Savannah, GA; Kirtland Air Force Base, Albuquerque, NM; Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst, NJ; Camp Humphreys, South Korea; and the home office in Addison, TX.
King Aerospace offers mission-ready, no-excuses contractor logistics support. Its global operation serves the U.S. military and government to deliver responsive aircraft maintenance and logistics support in some of the world’s most hostile, remote and harsh locations as well as operating facilities at Air Force bases and 24/7 global logistics outposts. It is powered by the passion of its team. These folks don’t simply believe in the King Cornerstone Principles. They live them.
