Lt. Col. Mike Hoza is our ES Officer. His qualifications and talents are very numerous and impressive. Here are but a few of them. He is a member of the Arizona Wing Ground Team, serving as a Ground Team Leader. And, if you don't know about the Arizona Ground Team - ask Col. Hoza. For 4 years running, the Arizona Ground Team has earned the highest rating available from the US Air Force. The award has only been given out 4 times since 1941 and, you guessed it, Arizona has won all 4 times. Quite impressive. And, Col. Hoza is one of the few.

Col. Hoza is a former military air and ground navigation instructor. As such, he takes training exercises out to actual aircraft crash sites and conducts actual crash site investigations. Talk about fun! Camping up on the rim, looking for ancient crashes - Yeah! You've come to the right place for fun!
