This requires a vocabulary that is rich in FAA approved language. Header Menu Skip to content.

I can remember a graduate class where we discussed how perception can often lead to one persons reality, or absolute truth. American innovation and a strong scientific, mechanical, and technological education is the only thing that will save young people from our fate. The photo of the mechanic with the cigarette butt in his mouth personifies a more aginc individual, who looks blue collar, dirty, and rough.

My profile is available to you on LinkedIn. Education is the key Bob. The report predicts that as global economies grow and tens of thousands of new commercial jetliners are produced, the demand for pilots and educated technicians will also grow exponentially.

I have been in there under the heavy rain in the middle of winter closing panels at midnite, at three in the morning looking for the problem in a nose gear light and more.

Lewis University teaches these new technological disciplines. Although it can be challenging, it can also be rewarding. Technology, advanced aircraft systems and composite materials are the new driving force within the aviation and aerospace markets. A bachelors degree in science, technology, math, or engineering is also highly sought in the field.


Being a mechanic is surely not a dirty word no pun intended. Unfortunately a cartoon mouse has little to do with a media empire, or a clown to the selling of hamburgers to billions. But ease of entry makes for a lot of sub par people coming in and the profession will never get the respect it truly deserves.

Lewis does not see our students as simple mechanics, or grease monkeys. Thank you for your kind consideration. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports: They all work holidays and weekends as well.

These skills are almost exclusively learned at the airline or manufacturing levels. I zrinc believe this and empirical statistics support it.

Yet the term mechanic has very little to do with what they actually do or who these people really are. My only humble response is educate, educate, educate.


However, I suspect that working midnights and shift work was brought to your attention prior to your career choice. The Oshkosh Air show is filled with senior aviators reveling in their careers and sharing stories of their exploits with teens and children.

My respect to those Mechanics who sometimes fall from above six or more feet trying to make a repair at the last minute. That is, if an individual perceives a brand of automobile to be unsafe. Educate as much you can. Bob, the revenue gained by paying a third world country worker to do the work of an American Union employee is astronomical.

Your email address will not be published. The same holds true for aircraft mechanics. Thanks for reading and the insightful comments. The economic inequality is not an airline issue but rather a global economic issue that can only be rectified through systemic arind incentives to companies who keep American middle class workers here, and penalize taking our labor aric.


I suspect that when guys like you and I are gone, their will be plenty of teens who look up at the sky and desperately want a career in aviation, in some capacity, just like you and I once did.

It takes 20 years to become a complete Line Maintenance technician and maybe if you are exposed 62. Key element now adays is: Iconography contributed to the stereotype. Dear Eric, I certainly can appreciate the article that you recently posted about aircraft mechanics and misperceptions.

Mechanics are referred to as housekeeping by their managers after being trained to complete so much technical training involving the actual manufacturing and arincc of the aircraft. Hey Bob, I see many of your points and agree with some of them. The company anticipates more thanpilots andairline maintenance technicians will be needed by Thanks again for the post and I would be pleased to know more srinc Lewis University and the program.

However, the 21st Century reality for an aircraft mechanic has little to do with these antiquated stereotypes and definitions.

There was a problem providing the content you requested

Eric J and Bob, you guys are in the right track, I have been in there, done that, etc. For instance, troubleshooting a complex and sophisticated fly-by-wire flight control system requires no wrenches, no grease, and no oil.

However, do these images truly reflect the reality of the mechanic or what he really does within his career? That photo of the inside of the aircraft, where pilot sits…interesting. The art work glamorizes the mechanic and romanticizes the idea of becoming a mechanic in service to your country.
