Jet Engine Mechanic
Shop or Shift Supervisor (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL -Oak Harbor, Wa – January 18, 2017
Things didn't differ much whether we were at our home base or onboard ship. Support the flight schedule, make repairs, prepare for the next flight. Different crews worked different areas, shop/hangar and the flight line/deck. Working in the hangar performing PM's (upkeep maintenance), of engines and fuel systems, plus the removal and replacing of the engine/s and prepare for the engine test run. Flight Line supporting the Flight Schedule, minor repairs upon the return of the aircraft, then refuel and prepare for the next flight.
