Pros: Benefits, travel, enjoyable work
Cons: certain deployments
A typical work is not typical when in the military. There are many different systems on an aircraft that can fail and require maintenance. When something fails we go to the plane, trouble shoot the problem down to a part or system using technical data, order the part or parts, replace that part, and run up the system. If the part is what was needed, we sign of the job.
I have learned electrical and electrical mechanical trouble shooting. Leadership skills. How to follow instruction.
Some of my co-workers are more experienced, some are less. They are all motivated to learn and do their best. They are knowlegable and hard workers. Always helping others.
The hardest part of the job is when deployments come up and I have to leave my family for long periods of time.
The most enjoyable part of the job is the comradery of my co=workers and the work its self.
