Air Force Airman 1st Class Daniel Lucas graduated from the C-130 Aircraft Mission Ready Airman course at Little Rock Air Force Base, Jackson, Ark.

The course is designed to train airmen to be fully qualified to perform duties and responsibilities as aerospace aircraft maintenance crew chiefs. The students learned to perform scheduled inspections, functional checks, repairs, and preventive maintenance on aircraft and aircraft-installed equipment. Students ensure that the aircraft has been properly serviced with fuel, hydraulic fluids and liquid oxygen, and accept responsibility for maintaining the C-130 aircraft in an operationally ready condition to meet mission requirements.

Lucas is the son of Sherry and Dave French of Penn Valley.

He is a 2002 graduate of Mountain View Academy in Redding.
