Lunchbox Posted July 19, 2005 Report Share Posted July 19, 2005 This is my first summer with a licence (I'm in heli ops), and dealing with newfound responsibilities. Engineering DI's at the end of the day was something I always took as a given working as an apprentice. It seemed to be standard procedure at the previous companies I worked for, and all but one or two contract engineers I worked with operated the same way. Basically, as far as I could tell, it was standard industry practice. Now, I'm newly licenced, and working off a small base with a guy who's got a good 15 years experience on me, and telling me that I'm more or less wasting my time staying to recieve A/C and do DI's in the evening (I was quote "babysitting pilots"). I like to think I take pride in my job and want to stick to my guns, but I don't want to seem like the proverbial 'young, dumb, and full of come' new AME. Also, it's pretty much just me and him for engineers on the base, so I don't want to make it too personal (I still gotta work with the guy). Any input? (from engineering and ops alike) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
