Worse than high school

Recommended Posts

Well its been a while since I posted last. Ive been studying like crazy, The amount of Reading, Math, And the all night study groups made 15 weeks Cruz right by. I cant believe they haven't asked me to go home yet. (A&P Classes) Most days around here i look like this



Its unbelievable how much Ive learned, I feel overwhelmed with what it takes to keep a bird in the air.


The flight physics coerces are now all behind me.

I have a hard time remembering all these Laws, How you ever do it Nov-67?


I went in knowing alot of stuff and that hasn't account for crap !


Well Ill try to swing by and say hello now and again.


Night everyone.

High school isn't that hard, it's just giving you the basics of what you'll need in life. You'll need to remember all the high school stuff forever, or at least some of it. The English part is important, because knowing spelling and grammar are part of getting ahead in the world. If you seem uneducated, your bosses will assume you are and promote someone else, regardless of your actual job performance.


They won't ask you to go home. They're making money off you, and they don't want to lose that. Do what you have to do to get through the flight physics courses, and then don't worry about that stuff. It's not that important, it's just a way to cull the slow and weak from the herd. I know a lot of A&Ps, and I doubt any of them knows much about flight physics. They do know how to fix whatever is wrong, and how to keep things from going wrong in the first place. Knowing how it flies is less important than knowing how it runs, IMO. Part of the process you're going through is learning how to learn the systems of the aircraft. You have to know those inside and out, and how everything affects everything else. It's an eternal process, and I've seen very experienced A&Ps learn new things about aircraft they've been maintaining for years, just as pilots learn something new all the time, if they're serious and lucky.


Welcome to the world of aviation, such as it is. There's no money in it, but it's sometimes fun. It's always challenging if you take pride in your work, and there is always more to learn.

Keep at it if you have the interest it will work out.

As Gomer says English & how you present yourself are real important, pride in what you do is what makes a good AP great.

Listen, watch, and ask questions, learning is a lifelong experience.

Good luck :ph34r:

HEY GIRL, welcome back was wondering where you disappeared to, ya could of emailed me :)


a piece of advice, pal up with your class mates and grill each other on the FAR's and standard procedures, everyone take turns asking the questions to the rest of the group. There was 10 of us that did this every friday night. set up a ring of chairs in a large room and fire away. have lots of food and drink available our session would wind up around 2 or 3 in the morning. but the knowledge was well retained.
