In today's interview, we talk with Maintenance Planner, Josue. Like many of his colleagues, Josue got his start at Aviation Career & Technical Education High School--however, his interest and curiosity in aviation go all the way back to his childhood days.
Josue tells us that he looked forward to trips to the airport from a young age. He was mesmerized by airplanes and even remembers having recurring dreams in which he'd hold on to the wings of a plane and fly away with it. The first time he boarded a plane himself, he wondered how it was that a piece of metal could hold an entire plane full of people. Years later he would find the answer to his question.
With now over six years of experience in aviation maintenance, Josue has the knowledge he'd always hoped for. On top of the education, Josue tells us, "Being an AMT is a discipline. Past the preparing stage, each day is far from repetitive. Not a single task or situation is identical, and that's where the skill and experience come into play."
When we ask Josue what his favorite part of working in aviation is, he tells the answer is simple.
"You get to fix things."
Some days problems escalate, and the solution isn't as easy to find. But when he's finally able to solve a case, the feeling is unbeatable.
