Welcome to the new series of my monthly blog(s). These articles are based on my experiences of nearly thirty years in the aviation business as a professional wrench twister, and over forty years in aviation total. I won’t bore you with any background information here, you can read all about my colorful career in the “About Us” section of this website. What I will attempt to do here in this space on a monthly basis, or when the spirit moves me, is to share some of my experiences and knowledge on different topics that have stood out, or have in some other way stuck in my craw long enough for me to finally say something about the chosen topic that doesn’t allow for a personal heated debate with the misguided opinions of misinformed or otherwise unknowledgeable “experts” arguing the finer points of their unsubstantiated opinions of subjects they have no clue what they’re talking about.
Enjoy… and feel free to contact me with your responses, questions or comments.
You know the old saying, “you get what you pay for”, and that’s generally true. I have to put quality ahead of quantity every time. If one doesn’t understand the value of excellent workmanship and just looks at the cost of it, then he needs to find another shop to work on his aircraft… We’re not it.
