Didn’t make the Dean’s List this semester, missed it by .15 points 😡. I fooled around too much.  I did however, make the Honor’s List. I’m hoping this doesn’t screw me out of any scholarships this year. #aviation #aandp #aircraftmechanic #aircraftmaintenance #tradeschool #honorslist #tarrantcountycollege #springsemester2018 #didntquitemakeit #fortworth #fortworthallianceairport #tarrantcountycollege #texas #college
Aircraft Welding is done.  The @faa emphasizes oxygen acetylene welding and brazing for some odd reason.  It’s a century old technology that’s been replaced by tig welding but I got through it.  Learned to braze, the brass colored bead in the second picture.  Butt weld, lap joint and the tee joint in the following pictures.  Mostly the class focused on inspecting welds and identifying defects such as cold lap and undercut.  Learned a ton and now I have a peeked interest in learning to tig weld. #aviation #aircraftmechanic #aandp #aircraftmaintenance #airframe #aircraftwelding #brazing #oxyacetylene #torch #tradeschool #tarrantcountycollege #fortworth #tarrantcounty #texas

Walked outside during welding class and found an AN-124.  It’s pretty big.  Always seems to be something pretty cool parked at Fort Worth Alliance Airport. #aviation #avgeek #aandp #aircraftmechanic #aircraftmaintenance #tradeschool #tarrantcountycollege #fortworth #fortworthallianceairport #texas #an124 #bigrussianplane
Oxygen-acetylene welding today.  Pretty neat, wish they’d teach TIG welding though.  Just learning to run beads today.  #aviation #aandp #aircraftmaintenance #aircraftmechanic #avgeek #welding #oxyacetylene #fillerrod #tradeschool #techschool #tarrantcountycollege #fortworth #torch #fortworthallianceairport #texas #weldinggoggles #deerskingloves #number5lens
Bought a set of @craftsman ratcheting combination wrenches.  I think I’ll add a new set of something every month until graduation.  That’ll make for a pretty good set of tools by then! #aviation #aandp #aircraftmechanic #aircraftmaintenance #avgeek #tools #craftsman #trafeschool #techschool #tarrantcountycollege #fortworth #fortworthallianceairport #texas #adultincollege #newtools
Grades for spring are in.  I’m not real impressed with my performance.  I must step up my effort.  Summer semester starts Monday with Aircraft Welding.  #aviation #aandp #aircraftmechanic #aircraftmaintenance #tradeschool #college #springsemester2018 #finalsweek #grades #tarrantcountycollege #fortworth #fortworthallianceairport #texas
Last final of the semester done to the drone of big radial engines outside.  Walk out the back to find this beautiful lady in the pattern.  Five day break starts today and then Airframe Welding starts next Monday. #aviation #aandp #aircraftmechanic #aircraftmaintenance #finals #radialengine #fifi #b29 #b29superfortress #superfortress #caf #avgeek #tarrantcountycollege #fortworth #fortworthallianceairport #texas
Landing gear final is done.  Made a 90 on the test.  All labs are complete and that class is in the books.  Four more finals next week.  Getting there, general and airframe o and p’s are scheduled for August.  #aviation #aandp #aircraftmechanic #aircraftmaintenance #tradeschool #airframe #landinggear #tarrantcountycollege #fortworth #fortworthallianceairport #texas
Composite sandwich board repair is done.  Turned out very good except I put bonding adhesive in the bottom of the repair.  Small mistake but great other than that.  #aviation #aandp #aircraftmechanic #aircraftmaintenance #airframe #composites #honeycombcore #compositerepair #carbonfiber #fiberglass #aramidcarbon #rampandsoak #peelply #bleeder #tradeschool #tarrantcountycollege #fortworth #fortworthallianceairport #texas #twoidiotsnotbeingidiots
Installed a fuel tank on a Piper Super Cub today.  Really a lot of fun in fuel systems today.  This plane makes me sad and I want to adopt her.  She needs to fly! #aviation #aircraftmechanic #aircraftmaintenance #aandp #fueltank #avgeek #generalaviation #piper #supercub #sheneedstoflyagain #tradeschool #tarrantcountycollege #fortworth #fortworthallianceairport #areallyhappyidiot #texas #avgas #tailwheel
Finishing up our repair to the sandwich board lay up.  Layered up a repair patch and placed the part under vacuum and into a heat cure.  On a side note, I make mixing up resin look good.  #aviation #aandp #aircraftmechanic #aircraftmaintenance #airframe #composites #tarrantcountycollege #fortworth #fortworthallianceairport #dfw #texas #tradeschool #honeycombcore #carbonfiber #fiberglass #aramid #twoidiotsnotbeingidiots
Post Airframe Electric Systems test two idiots in an airplane.  Making airplane noises and lamenting our scores.  Finals are week after next, then an incredibly long four day break before summer minimesters start. #aviation #aandp #aircraftmechanic #aircraftmaintenance #avgeek #tradeschool #tarrantcountycollege #fortworth #fortworthallianceairport #texas #twoidiots #dumbdumbdingdongs
We were able to get a close look at a Boeing 777-300 today at American Airlines on our tour.  It is unbelievable how big the aircraft actually is.  I’m six foot so the engine picture gives a little reference.  It was really great to be able to recognize components on the aircraft and think I know how to fix that!  All kinda coming together. #aviation #aandp #aircraftmechanic #aircraftmaintenance #avgeek #tradeschool #tarrantcountycollege #dfw #texas
Toured American Airlines heavy maintenance facility today at DFW Airport.  They graciously let me inflate an emergency slide.  Really great guys and I learned a ton about slides and how they work.  #aviation #aandp #aircraftmechanic #aircraftmaintenance #tradeschool #tarrantcountycollege #fortworth #texas #avgeek
Two idiots hammering.  Attempted to make brass o ring picks.  My came out great once I put the hammer down and ordered a set from amazon. #aviation #aircraftmechanic #aircraftmaintenance #aandp #tradeschool #tarrantcountycollege #fortworth #fortworthallianceairport #texas #twoidiots #dumbdumbdingdongs
Composite repair on our sandwich board layup.  Our instructor damaged our board so using a tap hammer we mapped the damage, measured our layer rings and placed a template.  Next we routed out the damaged honey comb core and began sanding out the repair area using a taper sanding method.  #aviation #aandp #aircraftmechanic #aircraftmaintenance #avgeek #airframe #composites #fiberglass #carbonfiber #aramid #warpclock #zeroreference #tapersand #tradeschool #tarrantcountycollege #fortworth #fortworthallianceairport #texas

Let’s start making those part time stacks!  Hopefully this goes well but if it doesn’t at least it’s an aviation industry interview. #aviation #aircraftmechanic #aircraftmaintenance #aandp #turbine #jobinterview #tradeschool #tarrantcountycollege #avgeek #fortworth #fortworthallianceairport #texas
