Default Awsome! Congrats.

I count obtaining my A&P while in the Air Force as one of my proudest achievements. Right up there with my ATP and heavy airplane Type Ratings..

The young man who used to help me do aircraft mx now has his a&p and I kid with him about the time he helped me change the bungee cords on our Pitts. I told him he has now done something very few have done, including the most talented airshow pilots who fly any version of the Pitts.

Default A&P

3 months into an 18 month program. Learning tons after thinking that I knew it all after flying for almost 50 years!
