Almost Every Day, some one is asking me, “How Do I Get My License”, or “How Do I Upgrade My License”. Many times the question starts out, “I need to get a pay raise” “What can I do next to earn more money”. With that in mind, I am starting this Blog, to answer these types of question. To help the young men and women to map out a career strategy, that fills the career goals and financial needs of his/her family.
At the end of the day, the only important question is, “Am I Earning Enough Money”.
About the Mentor:
My aviation career started in 1968, by joining the US Navy as a jet engine mechanic. Since then, I have worked all over the world.
Currently I hold a A & P, IA, Bachelor of Science in Aviation Management, Masters of Science in Aviation Quality Assurance, PhD in Airline Design and Certification.
I have written 12 Airline Certificates (AOC), I have forgotten how many Repair Station’s, Part 145’s, I have written the manuals for and completed their Part 145, certification.
I am currently working for the Royal Family of Kuwait, maintaining the Private Fleet of Personally owned Fixed Wing Aircraft and Helicopters. We school AMT”s/EASA B-1 hopefuls to complete their licensing. Almost 11 years now. An lots of aviation maintenance personal have competed their licensing. Both FAA A & P and EASA B-1.
I am about to retire and open a maintenance school in the Philippines, as a joint venture with a University in the Philippines. The University there teaches the Filipino License and are going to add the US FAA A & P and European B-1 licensing to their curriculum. This will be a working facility, with a Repair Station Part 145. It is simple, Do you want to read about working on airplanes OR do you want a real time hands on working shop to learn it.
