It's good to have old friends. My friend Matt Came to visit and volunteer in the MMS hangar for a week. It has been a fun change of pace to have him turning wrenches in the hangar. I invite any of you mechanically inclines individuals to come and volunteer sometime as well. Come see what MMS is all about.

Lots and Lots of paperwork!!! Like most cool jobs, there seems to be an outrageous amount of paperwork to be done as an aircraft mechanic. Some of the paperwork includes Service Bulletins.Every year aircraft manufacturers put out stacks of paperwork documenting service that is recommended on their aircraft. As a mechanic I must root through these stacks to find applicable Bulletins which apply to the aircraft I am working on. Watch this video to see an example of the work these Service Bulletins call for.

Here is the time lapse of the Moody Aviation Cessna 182 aircraft I referred to in the previous video. The several thousand photos that make up this short 2 minute video were actually taken over a couple week period!
