Aviation Maintenance Real Life

Official Title

Well I think its time to commemorate a monumental day in my career. I have been holding this position for several weeks now, but I finally feel confident in announcing my new position.

I felt an official photo was in order for my new job title.

Work has been quite stressful over the last few months as there have been some major changes to how things operate. I was the guy left holding the proverbial stick, thus I have been promoted to official scape goat for the maintenance department. My new title is “Director of Maintenance” and this job comes with some heavy responsibility. I have been working really long hours lately to try and get a handle on the situation. This has really taken a toll on my hobbies. Video editing and shooting have completely stopped, even Email and video commenting has taken a steep nose dive. I am trying my best to keep a decent training routine because I have $250 non-refundable entry into an Ironman 70.3 race at the end of the month. Family time is still a priority, thus fun factor has to be cut off. There’s just never enough time.

I still have a ton of work ahead of me and no sign of this storm giving up, but I will charge ahead in the direction life takes me and try to master this new position. The team is starting to gel and the order is full steam ahead. We may not be out of this storm yet, but we are chugging away in a direction that shows promise of good things to come. Only time will tell…
