15T is super busy. Almost all the time. There are days you come in and there is no work to be done and you go home right away. Depends also if you’re in a flight company or a line maintenance company or a maintenance battalion. Daily life is good if you’re a good worker and achieving is very easy. I didn’t work on a single mechanical thing in the outside and I am now after 3 years in this MOS one of the more proactive 15T in my company with the amount of experience I’ve accrued. AIT is very Barney style and styler easy. As I said I never worked with mechanical things other than a skateboard before I joined and even in AIT they had to explain every single tool to me and the best ways to use them. You’ll learn technique throughout your progression in the field but I see it as a really good job to climb quickly. The promotions for 15T are always so easy to achieve if that’s what you choose to do.

Jose Olivares I learned a lot in my first unit. Following senior specialist...not so much the NCOs. As they stray away from hands in work in this field most of the time. And I planned on being a crew chief so I could get better acquainted with WO’s and O’s to get letters of recommendation to go to flight school. Most times now it’s not how it used to be. Nowadays you’ll go straight to a flight company and learn from the ground up from there because flight companies are always hurting for crew chiefs. Study manuals. Know more than pilots. Always have a will to learn more and you’ll do fine and be a great CE/ Maintainer.
