I am officially an Airframe Mechanic ( U.S Only)

11 May

God is great. All praise to him, last saturday after a long grilling test 15 hours on doing both my General and Airframe Orals and Practicals, I passed my exam. I can officially work on the Airframe bit of any US registered aircrafts. hallelujah!!! I have been in class for the past 8 months studying for this. A course that is done in 2 – 3 years, I’m doing it in 1 year. So you can imagine the pressure at hand, the expectations to meet. My visions and my goals. I never thought I could get here, considering that I have no experience or background in aviation.

Well incase you don’t know what the “Airframe” is. It’s to do with the structure of the plane, the major part of its electrical system, the hydraulic/ Pneumatic system, its assembly and rigging and much more ( ask me this question later or check on google).  It takes a lot to engineer an aircraft and it also takes a lot to maintain it and keep it in service. I definitely appreciate people who can cover a plane with fabric, people who are capable of trouble shooting a system and much more. As a mechanic, all the glory seems to go to the Pilot. Well he/she has done a good job, there is a lot that went on to put the plane in the air. Everyone plays a vital role to making you have a safe journey. Any error made by the maintenance guy, will reflect on the pilot flying the plane and could in turn cause casualties. My point in case is, if you really want to become an aircraft mechanic, (DONT DO IT FOR THE MONEY). Make sure your heart is there because, your error will kill people. The most important factor to consider in the aviation industry is the “Human Factor”. We are human beings, but we must reduce the error to the minimum in fact there should be no error whatsoever.

I’m glad and happy I received my airframe license from SMAT (school of missionary aviation technology). But at the same time, I have a lot of responsibility on my shoulders. I must always do my job right or people might die because of something small I overlooked.

Conclusion, I am so happy I’ve got my airframe exam out of my way. Phewww!!! Now I need to get my Power plant by the end of July 🙂 My next step, after that it’s flying.

Have a blessed week guys 😉

Dear Diary…

18 Apr

It’s been a while since my last confession but I though instead of pictures. Let me use words. I “gotta make the song cry”  as Jay-Z would say. I’ve been taking a turning point in my life. Everyday something new to learn about myself and others. It’s amazing how much you can get to know about someone especially when you see them from a distance and watch. In life you think you’ve got everything in check but there will come that point when you’ll plan, plan and plan. But nothing will com through because guess what. “God” plans it for you.

You go ahead and plan your life, but He plans it for you. You think you are going in the right direction, and maybe you are but maybe you’re not. So ask yourself this funny yet serious question?. “what the heck am I doing?”, “Why am I doing it”, and ” What if it doesn’t fall to plan?”. These are the questions that have been going on in my head and I’ve decided to let go and let God take control because sometimes no matter how hard you push. God will turn your effort into what He wants it to be. We are all part of this cycle, this destiny. Somehow I’d like to feel we are part of this butterfly effect. All stringed together and at some point you will get to the “peak” of your purpose. I don’t know what you believe in but I truly believe in the power of thee of the almighty. He is the one. The Alpha and the Omega. make not doubt about that. I don’t know what affiliation you fall under but fact remains we still all believe in ONE GOD. One source. Our hope and faith all goes towards him.

Now, I don’t know where I will be tomorrow or the day after but all I know is I’ll still be following my dream while still making sure I pray  and hope that it’s in accordance with His will for my life. Because I may plan but it is all in vain unless He want it and says that’s what it is for me. So next time you pray don’t be selfish in praying for your needs, squeeze some for others and prays that it is in His will for you.

Funny though, all the “robbers” out there pray that they will not get caught. The “cheaters” pray they will not get caught. Somewhere someone is praying for something ridiculous , so please think before you ask God for anything. And be very careful what you say coz “so as a man thinks and says, so will he be”

Peace, have a lovely week.

Still waters run deep…

This easter was wonderful. Enjoyed every drop of it. Just thought I should share my shots of it. Spring is a beautiful time because that’s when the flowers bloom, the grass comes out and the birds sing along.

This has been a week of re-evaluation for me. I had the time to come at peace with what I am doing. God works in mysterious ways. If there is one thing I’ve learnt it, enjoy every breathe you take. You never know if will wake up tomorrow. I stared death in the face this easter, but God is one good God.

This was the highlight of my easter. Enjoy!! Have a wonderful and blessed week.

Peace

Define it or we’re on to the next one who will…

14 Mar

So in life, I’ve learnt two things. There are things you can control and there those things you can’t control. What I mean is, we have planned out a course in life. I believe we decide what path we want to go for regardless of where you are and what you do. I on the other feel like life has a wonderful way of making us reach our destiny. Take for example, I woke up today and planned that I would be in Grand Rapids, MI by 4.35pm, but God planned something different. The pilot announced after we boarded the plane that there was a “maintenance” problem. I was so pissed off and angry. So they ended up cancelling our flight, in the process I made a friend. We had so much in common, I was shocked as to “where have you been all my life”.  After the airline wasting “7 hours” of my life. I decided to whoo sahh and look at it positively. Contacted my “zen” which is my positive energy and relaxed. After a wonderful weekend in Dallas, TX I wasn’t about to let some airline spoil. I’m not mentioning names at the moment because I’m bigger than that. Thing is, I spent 3 hours with my new friend (it’s a girl BTW) so stop putting thoughts in your head.  She has a crazy life and crazy schedule. She procrastinates on time. She’s always late for class, late for almost everything. For grammar purposes, I’m going to call my friend “Lisa”. Lisa is twenty-seven years old, lives in the city and over time I got to find more than I asked.

I found out something about women and our men. In relationships, we generally have to define what it is. I don’t know what kind of relationship you’re in currently but you have to define whether your going out. Is he your boyfriend? Should we take it to the next step? Where do we go from here? All these questions popped up in my brain and I was like, we need to sort this pending issue out.  So many women are in relationships/ friendships and you don’t know what it is. Is he my guy? Is he my good friend bed buddy? Is he my bed buddy?

You spend time with this person everyday or most of the time and you haven’t gotten a sign whether he’s your man or not, I say all this because you could find yourself five years down the lane with someone waiting for him to pop the question and he still isn’t showing any signs of doing it. Point in case, if you love her; put a ring on it because someone else will  (like beyonce said). I ‘m pro  woman so I don’t want you to make the mistake of staying with someone who isn’t ready to define what it is. And if you’re in a “good friend bed buddy” situation, have fun while it lasts because at one point you’ll still have to define it whether or not you like it. That is if your “bed buddy” situation lasts. I on the other hand have decided to sort of define where I am in my relationship. So many things are happening in my life. Great things are about to happen this year, so watch out world. I’m coming.!!

Have a blessed week.
