But it is not the same as a being a well qualified, educated, safe, experienced, and certified aviation maintenance technician. Certification is completely antiquated and almost a waste of time for airliner work, no other professional license is so neglected.

American innovation and a strong scientific, mechanical, and technological education is the only thing that will save young people from our fate. Yet the term mechanic has very little to do with what they actually do or who these people really are.

Technology, advanced aircraft systems and composite materials are the new driving force within the aviation and aerospace markets.

The photo of the mechanic with the cigarette butt in his mouth personifies a more laconic individual, who looks blue collar, dirty, and rough.

Hey Bob, I see many of arinnc points and agree with some of them. They all work holidays and weekends as well. But I often wonder if this strategy would even work.

Thanks for reading and the insightful comments. I look forward to hearing from you. I worked midnights for years and used to joke with my colleagues that I had watched more fireworks displays on the flight line than with my family.
