Nov. 17, 2020—Airmen from Travis Air Force Base's 60th Logistics Readiness Squadron toured the Tesla Service Center in Berkeley, Calif., to evaluate and improve maintenance procedures. 

According to a press release, 15 airmen were given a tour and offered improvement suggestions, like having drivers troubleshoot their own issues before bringing their vehicle into a shop. The tour was conducted by Blaine Huston, the manager of Tesla Service Center. 

“We’re lucky to be near Tesla, one of the most cutting-edge and modernized automotive companies,” said Master Sgt. Jerry Voyles, 60th LRS vehicle fleet manager. “We wanted to take an opportunity to get eyes on their processes, to learn how to incorporate new technology and innovative processes in how we manage the vehicle fleet at Travis (AFB), Air Mobility Command and the Air Force.”
