A challenging but fulfilling work experience
Sortie Support Craftsman (Current Employee) – Minot, North Dakota – February 13, 2017
A typical day for a crew chief can come in many broad areas. One area is completing day-to-day maintenance, including end-of-runway, postflight, preflight, thru-flight, special inspections and phase inspections. You would also diagnose malfunctions and replace components. Complete detailed inspections, record-keeping, and administration. While also providing supervision and coordination of aircraft care, as well as such varied duties as crew chief, repair and reclamation, and crash recovery duties. Management in the military can become quite hectic with the constant change of individuals taking command with different standards and procedures differing from each individual. The hardest part of the job would have to be the time away from loved ones. The most enjoyable part of the job would have to be the camaraderie and bonding with your fellow airman.
