A behind-the-scenes look into the gritty, non-glamorous hate-fueled life of the aircraft maintainer.
Documentation STILL Sucks (ft. Bunz)
It doesn’t matter how many times someone says they combed through the books, something is always wrong. Improper or poorly done documentation can mean the difference between a successful job, having to repeat a job, or failing an inspection. Documentation is essential and mandatory, but you’ll always find people who will fight you the whole way.
When in Distress, Call EMS! (ft. Frush)
When major emergencies happen, they take to the sky. We count on them to take those in critical condition to the nearest haven and be our eyes in the sky during major disasters. They are the men and women of the aviation emergency services. Life in the EMS/SAR community can be very demanding, but one thing is for sure…
It's Not the Training, It's About the Message (feat. Cookies and Cream)
In every form of work, there is some form of training. Typically this is done by a mentor or an instructor, but what do you do when there’s neither a trainer nor a budget? Training then becomes a matter of legality from “read & signs” to “death by power point”. On-the-job training is meant to bridge the knowledge gaps left from technical schools. When on-the-job training is left up to a power point slide, is it really about the training, or sending a message?
Ain't Nothin' but a QA Thing!
Their sole mission is to prevent the occurrence of defects. They do the job that no one likes to do but have fun doing it. They are the first ones to bitch you out and make you do all the dumb shit “legally”. They are the most nit-picky, never satisfied, overly dramatic, first to shut down ops and pull your certs. They are Quality Assurance representatives. It ain’t easy being one of the most hated entities in the aviation world, but one thing’s for sure, it ain’t nothing but a QA thing.
Sloooooow It Down (ft. Arabia)
In today’s world, it’s all about speed and intensity, however revving the red line and going full throttle will eventually break down even the most committed person. Even the most dedicated routine or process needs a rest day or de-load day. These small breaks and reassessment steps can mean the difference between success and a catastrophic breakdown. When living in the fast lane, sometimes you just have to sloooow it down.
Shift Wars, Revenge of the Shift
No matter where you are, no matter where you go, there is always some form of hate and animosity between working shifts. One shift or another always half-asses things when they know the oncoming shift is imminent. In such instances, one shift finds a way to f**k over the other. From hiding common items to stacking the hangar in the most inconvenient way, the anger boils deep and always finds a way to get its revenge.
