While i may draw issue with a poster on here who works for mx, that doesn't mean I'm at odds with all of mx. Xjmech wishes to paint it that way, but at some point you have to be an adult and reference what I said, not what it was morphed into.

Also, sucking up would be me apologizing for or dancing around playing into a narrative that wasn't mine. If you're truely that put off by my words, not the clutching of pearls that just happened in the previous pages by the Xjmech for me having the audacity to state facts of a previous incarnation of this company, then tough.

In the past mx and some pilots had secret code words on the local freq, little laminated sheets handed out to pilots by mx for reset procedures not approved for pilots, and made up system knowledge that made it backwards into training departments on which pilots were expected to know cold... it's too much. We have a book which we follow the feds will bite us, on top of which it's clear the poster had no idea some of those instantly bemoaned procedures which would cause damage to theequipment and death to all rampies has been in effect since day one and causes neither.

I think your read on past pages, while not unique, is preposterous.

Maintenance is doing a phenomenal job here. It's very thankless...I turn wrenches on aircraft in the Guard. Stuff comes in broken or with gremlins and leaves the shop working again, but no one seems to care. Maintenance is out of sight, out of mind. The job is not flashy or glamorous and often gets taken for granted. Depending on the situation, I'll include a "shout out" to dispatch, ATC, and MX when I make a PA to remind the folks of the hard work going on behind the scenes.

Preposterous how? I stated the facts as I know them, disagreed with some, but didn't attack nor call names because they disagreed with me. I agreed with your assessment of the situation, but not your dialogue with MX.

Without us, they wouldn't have a job. But without them, neither would we. Credit to those who do.

I think it's silly to have LCAs telling us to do stuff because "this is how we are teaching it now" without a reference. On the topic of switch position, I don't think it will hurt the acft to leave it in, because I understand the system and the logic very well. But unless it is written somewhere, it is just technique in my book. Put it in a memo for all to read, and it becomes policy. Incorporate it into a change in the manuals on the next rev. It's that simple.

Your just showing your ignorance about electricity. Loading a generator before it's making full power doesn't hurt the generator it burns up whatever appliance it's powering.
Unless you've audited all the electrical parts your company has ever bought and determined none failed before the end of their useful life, then you don't know what your talking about.
If you don't believe me, go plug your microwave into your Sams Club generator at half throttle and tell me how long it lasted before burning up.

True enough for a normal generator, but that's not how an aircraft system works my friend. The GCU will not allow power to pass from the generator to the airplane until the correct power is being generated. And that will not happen until the IDG is spooled up to a certain speed and power has been tested by the GCU; then the GCU allows it to pass to the plane.

This ain't your daddy's Dewalt genset.

Is it generally frowned upon to jumpseat on the first and/or second weekend of training? Would something like MSP-IAH be stupid to try (generally speaking)? thanks
