My time with BFS was awesome. I learned a whole of a lot. Great group of guys I had worked with. If I wanted to go back to AFG, I would definitely go back with BFS! Great pay, great group to work with from the newest guy to the most senior. Some work got very repetitive, but you learned it and it stuck with you. Got more in depth on composite repairs, engine rebuilds, which was way different than a turbofan engine. hardest part was being away from the family. most enjoyable was working, and learning new things all while telling sea stories with everybody else!
