In the early eighties he worked on an Air Force BASH Team in Nevada (Tonopah Test
Range Airfield). He was the first recipient of the newly created SPA (Special Purpose
Abatement) permit ever issued by the USF&WS in Dec 07. He also serves as the current
President of the Texas Association of Avian Abatement Professionals (TAAAP), a group
that was recently formed in his home state of Texas to promote the ethical use of
raptors in the Texas bird abatement industry.

Fal-Tech, Inc. coordinates with each state to obtain the required licenses and permits.
