Jobs That Take Off
A career path rarely follows a straight line - there are always unexpected twists and turns that lead to new and exciting opportunities.
From Contractor to a 24-Year Career
I started at Inland as a contracted operator during the pilot launch of a recovery program at Washington Dulles International Airport back in 1998. After that first season, a full program was launched at both Dulles (IAD) and Reagan National (DCA) Airports, and I was chosen as the Supervisor for the DCA operation.
An Unexpected Change of Course
In 2008, I was attending Embry Riddle Aeronautical University pursuing a career as a Commercial Pilot, when a fellow student suggested I come work for IDS deicing aircraft at the Minneapolis−Saint Paul International Airport (MSP).

Deicing aircraft from 50 feet in the air is exciting, and it’s an important job to keep aircraft and passengers moving safely during the winter season. Our Deicers ensure a safe operational environment, participate in pre-planning for the event by performing checks on equipment, trucks, and servicing equipment with fuel or glycol fluid. We offer a comprehensive training program both in the classroom and on the job to make sure our deicers are ready to provide the highest level of service.
IDS Operations Managers supervise the deicing of aircraft to ensure proper safety and airline requirements are met. They manage all aspects of the daily operation, from providing supervision of maintenance, flight operations, facility requirements and customer service, to leadership and coaching in order to increase safety and performance. They work closely with the Airport Authority and other operators to build strong airport community relationships.
Quantem Ramp Agents ensure our ground handling teams safely load and unload aircraft freight, including the build up and break down of cargo pallets and freight containers. It is critical that all Quantem and customer safety standards are met when operating equipment such as K-loaders, tugs, and dollies, and shipping and security documents are completed and processed properly.
Our Fleet Mechanics maintain and repair deicing and recovery vehicles across our network of stations. They are responsible for the diagnosis and repair of engines, transmissions, differentials, electrical, hydraulic systems, and brake and pump repair and replacement. With a shared safety responsibility, they work to achieve a safe and healthy work environment for all.
The recovery, management, and recycling of spent aircraft deicing fluid at airports is critical to environmental health. Our Equipment Operators work in close proximity to airfield personnel, aircraft and other airfield equipment, and operate recovery equipment and vehicles during and after aircraft deicing to ensure fluid is collected and the least contamination occurs, helping our customers meet important regulatory requirements and protect the environment.
Passenger Services Agent
Quantem Passenger Service Agents greet airline passengers and are responsible for ticketing, gate and jet bridge functions, baggage, and customer inquiries and requests. In addition to ensuring customer safety standards are met and maintained, they are the first line for delivering a great passenger experience.
