Thoughts on Repair Tech add

Repair Tech wanted, 2 year of school and experience wanted, GOOD salary of $18 to $20 per hour. Personally I think this is a joke, you can flip burgers for $15 and they want an experienced tech for $18. what are your thoughts ?

YaYa no argument hire who you want, don't apply and all that. My question is about AME violations on your licence. I just looked at CARS and found nothing so I call BS on the violation thing.

Re: AME Licence Violations.

So there are written laws in CARS regarding when a violation against an AME can be registered? Due cause and prove of error etc etc? I'm not going to spent time looking for this but ask any of you out there who know their way around CARS ( I don't ) to please let us know where this is? thanks.

There is an add on here for AME's with preference given to those without licence violations. Its sort of worded like a whole bunch of you guys out there have violations so we want to weed you out and only hire those without violations.

Re: Out of school for years without any work experience asking for opinion

As said age is not a factor but you gotta step up your efforts to get hired. Are you in BC? There are several AMO's that hire on a regular basis so you have to get your name in there. Do you monitor the job boards, have your name in with the contract agencies? You'll have noticed big demand for main...

Don;t see why not. I've worked at a lot and I mean a lot of FBO's AMO's etc not one asked if I had a criminal record. They want you to show up to work on time and do what you're were hired to do.

Re: Type of engine on Canadian 737s

Which blades require the NDT? First stage fan or compressor or power turbine? Fan is quite quick, maybe 30 min to remove the set a couple hrs for a tech for the NDT then slip them back on the hub. Compressor or PT is another story.
