Pilot/Mechanic Relationship

Recommended Posts

I was actually thinking of not replying to this thread but I can't resist. The biggest thing pilots and ame's have is to communicate and respect one another's abilities and communicate that effectively. 

Pilots cannot always state a problem he is having with the helicopter in a fashion that the ame understands, so the AME says to himself another do-do bird.

AME thinks the pilot is just complaining for nothing, because he can't find anything wrong.

Actually there was a problem, one of the bolts holding the rear skid gear in place was loose and causing a vibration in flight, neither vertical or lateral!!!!!!

Very early in my career I solved the problem, I became a Pilot/Engineer and never argued with myself.

As stated above, we are all on the same team.

ANY AVIATION SCHOOL THAT DENIGRATES ONE OCCUPATION OVER THE OTHER NEEDS THERE INSTRUCTORS REPLACED OR RETRAINED.

IMHO.
