    I have told my Doctor (who is a good bloke) several times that my job and his are VERY similar, but mine is much harder.

    Why, because when I have a sick Aircraft arrive, I cannot ask it why are you here, how do you feel today, where does it hurt and what do you think I should do about it?

    Well I could, but I wouldn't get an answer.
    yeah I thought that way too, until a doctor told me "lets see you work on that engine while its running"

    Default Advanced ratings/type certs

    I've made tweaks and adjustments to a running engine before.... I miss making adjustments on T64-100 engines while the helicopter is running. It definately gets your blood pumping.

    Working on a running engine is commonplace! BTW, what is it that you do at Dover AFB?

    The thread started in '05 when I was younger. Wouldn't know how to modify now that I'm older, so please disregard the percentage and note than interest is peaked at 10. Or just disregard the thread all together
