Today (May 24th) is Aviation Maintenance Technician Day
A friend of mine wrote an article a few years ago which really sheds some light on what we as AMTs (Aircraft Maintenance Technicians) deal with in a typical day. If you’ve ever flown you’ve probably at some point witnessed an AMT being called to the flightdeck to consult with the crew. We don’t want to delay or cancel your flight but if we do cancel you for a mechanical reason I hope you understand it is because we are taking our job seriously.
My friend Darrell Irby who I worked with when I was at Delta Airlines wrote the following article and gave me permission to share it with you on my website.
