Meet the team: Rich Vaccaro

Our team is PAC’s heart (and brain), and we’re proud to have incredibly highly skilled individuals delivering outstanding work to our clients and partners. In the following months, we’ll share some profiles of our PAC people. Check out our first “Meet the team“:

Working for PAC since September 2021, Rich Vaccaro is our Training Systems Test and Evaluation Manager based in the USA. Before joining the company, he served in the US Navy for almost three decades: “I have many fond memories and am proud of what I accomplished in the US Navy. But I’d say my biggest accomplishment is that I didn’t have to compromise who I am as a person to enjoy that success.”

At PAC, Rich is responsible for testing RAAF F/A-18F and EA-18G devices at the RAAF Base Amberley. “In addition to the testing, I also communicate with the OEMs in the US, in coordination with Raytheon Australia, to provide feedback from test events to further refine updates to provide Air Force aircrew with the highest fidelity devices on which to train”, he explains.

“I enjoy the people I work with at PAC and those that work for our industry partners. I also enjoy the fact that my work directly supports the warfighter”.

If Rich explained his job in simpler words (or to a class of kindergarteners), he’d say, “I get to test life-sized, realistic video games”—it sounds fascinating, doesn’t it?

Outside the working hours, Rich enjoys spending time with his wife and the outdoors: hiking, hunting, exploring and travelling.

PAC is proud to have a high-skilled veteran like Rich Vaccaro on our team, who delivers exceptional work under our Integrated Training Solutions capability.
