Just like any other machine that has ever been invented, aircrafts need proper attention and care for it to function effectively, regardless how technologically advanced the design is. Because of the need for aircrafts to be checked periodically to ensure it functions effectively, a new career has risen and it is called aircraft mechanic.

The job of an aircraft mechanic is simply defined as a profession that services and repairs damages on aircrafts and its engines. These professionals are the ones that ensure the security of the aircraft operations and safety of those who are on it. All aircrafts must receive routine check ups and maintenance to ensure it functions well and this is the job of the aircraft mechanic. There are organizations that set a certain standard for aircraft maintenance plans and these guidelines must be strictly followed by all airline operations. The following are the things to consider when creating a schedule for the routine check ups of an aircraft: number of flying hours, number of days passed, and cycle of flight operation.

There are many aircraft mechanic schools you can choose from today because of the constant demand for such skills. The courses on aircraft mechanics does not only include a bachelor’s degree, but also have associate degrees and even certificate programs. It will take about two to three years to complete a course in aircraft mechanics. The main things learned in these courses would be turbine engines, aviation electronics, and the different ways to use different tools and equipment. There are also organizations that not only set standards for airline operations, but also certify schools that give out courses for aircraft mechanic profession.

Being an aircraft mechanic is a tough yet important job and this is the reason why some schools offer the courses as early as high school, to be able to prepare students better.

There are even other colleges that demand the need for a study on a second language.

An 18-month relevant work experience is needed to apply for certification from the organizations that handle airline operations and aircraft mechanic school standards.

Are You Caught Between Right and Wrong?

At a certain age, we all reach the point where we stop to think about what’s right and what’s wrong. Recently it started occurring more often upon reaching this phase of self- exploration and thinking “we know it all” but get hit in the face with a shovel called “reality”. After questioning everything around me (even my own existence), I stop to think “am I where I’m Supposed to be, or is it where I Want to be”?!

You find yourself working strange stuff, one of which is studying a family’s choice of field that you’ve been stuck with since you were born, where the whole family is waiting for you to save them from their boring & structured life.

Most of us end up doing something else other than what we planned for which often leads us to the question… Am I on the right track? Should I just go with it or do I look for something else, something more me?

Coming from a culture that resists change, it’s impossible to find an answer when you ask for advice; everyone ends up lying to you just to make you feel better or gives you examples based on their experience which- half of the time- don’t apply to your case.

What do I make of this advice anyway, people don’t know what I’ve been through, the path I’ve taken, and the decisions I’ve made. What difference is it going to make, why should I even bother?!

Sometimes, I myself think that maybe I could have become someone more me and that obtaining an engineering path and career was totally not the right choice. But wait a minute, isn’t that what usually happens when you’re just a follower in the herd that is your culture or most likely, parents belief? Taking the “Hard Way” out, not really caring what other people thought I should or should not do, did not stop me from making up my mind and going after what I think is right for me.

I just simply believe that every person is born with certain set of talents & that these talents can be enhanced but the only problem with us is that we don’t even try to know ourselves. The worst thing is that sometimes we know that we possess certain treasures in ourselves but still we don’t get the courage to work on them & polish them.

So, I started challenging myself into different fields like writing itself. I took this writing as a challenge to prove to myself that I can type more than 350 words whenever I want to. Same I did with sketching & painting. The most beautiful thing about this challenging idea was that it helped me to explore myself in new dimensions & that I always come up with new fresh ideas regarding any challenge that I placed in front of me rather than being part of a herd.

This is exactly what I think you should all do when you go through something like that. JUST CHALLENGE yourself with work tasks, throw yourself out there, try new things, and don’t submit to what people think you should do, because in the end you do not want to be just another ordinary person, we have a lot of these already. Live your life, not someone else’s.

A Totally Different Way To Do Life

“The call of Christ… has come between a person and their natural life.”
– Dietrich Bonhoeffer (1906-1945)

THE BREACH. Jesus has come to show us how to live, but first we must die. We cannot live until we have died.

Now, before you stop reading, consider this: Why is it that life doesn’t work for us? When will life and its circumstances come to be at peace with our expectations for it? What are we to do with a life that seems to want to betray us? And even if we could grasp a better way to live, just how do we do it?

***

Life doesn’t work because we haven’t yet acknowledged the devil at work. A Christian’s character is to expect testing and temptations in this world.

When we get out of bed of a morning delirious with content because of the tests and temptations God will ask us to endure in his name, then we are blessed with the capacity to overcome. God would never compel us to overcome. We only overcome when we desire to overcome, because Jesus has overcome for us for all eternity.

***

Life and its circumstances will come to be at peace with our expectations as soon as we fit our expectations to the nature of life, first. Not the other way around. We will forever be disappointed if we are the bearers of our own expectations.

Dying to self is the wisdom of realigning all our expectations to God’s agenda.

***

Does life seem bent on betraying us? It can seem that way.

But what does life truly owe us? We are given life on a silver platter, and yet we begrudge the very things we are given. We are given possessions to steward and work to do. The former we delight in to possess, but we are to hold them loosely. The latter we enjoy because tasks are only relevant as channels of relational connection.

There really is no betrayal but our own coveting. Our complaints are a betrayal of God’s eternal grace that has gifted us with something as wonderful as life.

***

So even if we could grasp a better way to live, just how are we going to do it?

We must expect that life will test and tempt us. As we train ourselves in the awareness of the tests and temptations everywhere, we begin to become more aware.

If we dispel the foolish rationale that life is supposed to make us happy, we may then find a purpose and a meaning beyond happiness. Then we realise life is about dying to self so we can live (truly) for Christ – the only and the ultimate satisfaction.
