New experiences through Aircraft work every day. Exciting
Pros: Something new to learn every day
Cons: Short breaks, long hours, salary based.
My typical day at work was quite simple in terms of we knew exactly what we needed to do at all times. I learned that F-15 aircraft needed to be maintained daily properly to ensure its full potential being met. Sorties, talking to pilots, and the every day servicing of aircraft made the job exciting. Hardest part of the job would definitely be the long hours, but the satisfaction of knowing that you helped repair a war machine was amazing. My management depending on what base I was, were extremely helpful as well as demanding. Safety was preached every day and we all looked out for each other. My co workers were amazing most of them I went to technical training with. Any new base I went to I would run into old friends that I have met along the way. Most enjoyable part is that fact that I help maintain aircraft that helped keep our country as well as our allies safe.
