A Collection of Articles Related to Becoming an Aircraft Mechanic
Included in this post, I have chosen articles and resources to give you an overall understanding of a career in aircraft repair, but first, a few brief points to consider.
If you have a desire for working on airplanes, a career as an aircraft mechanic might be a good choice for you.
Naturally, if you’re an airplane mechanic, you have a lot of responsibility. Your repairs have to be 100% because unlike a vehicle, that you pull off to the side of the road in case of a breakdown, a problem with an aircraft is complicated and the pilot will need to land to make repairs.
Like any career before committing, you must do some research to identify if the career is the right choice for you.
I’m a fan of shadowing a successful person in the field before committing. That way you get some hands-on experience and gain insights into what the career is all about. If shadowing is not available, the next best thing is to see if an interview could be arranged.
I also suggest asking yourself a few questions about a career before committing, here are a few that come to mind:
If I had all the money I could spend in my lifetime would I work as an aircraft mechanic?
Is this career something I can see myself doing for the rest of my life?
Is this a career I can be proud of?
Do I feel confident in my abilities to perform all the duties for this job?
Am I passionate about this career?
Am I dedicated to this career?
Your answers to the above questions will give you an idea of how dedicated you are to this career.
Have a look at the resources I have selected that will give you a strong overview of what’s involved in a career as an aircraft mechanic, be sure to spend some time on; “A Day in the Life”, “What To Know Before Becoming An Aircraft Mechanic” and “Job Opportunities.”
