Default Important announcement

(In a MASH type voice)

May I have your attention please- May I have your attention please...

My parents and my wife will be glad to know- I am officially done with college.

On this past Tuesday I finished the last of my course work and yesterday I finished my oral and practical exams.

In light of my achievements, to include a degree in aviation maintenance technology, private pilot certificate, instrument rating, and an aircraft mechanic certificate with both airframe and power plant ratings, I would like to henceforth be addressed as Baron Manfred Von Lomcevak Duck.

Celebrations are to follow.

That is all. [sm=teeth_smile.gif]

Thanks guys. It seems like it took forever. That's what my parents say too...

And CP, after my first $100,000,000.00 and I begin to appoint dust cleaners, engine degreasers and flying field liaisons, you'll be at the top of my list for czar of composite speed plane modifications and custom parts analysts.

Way to go ! Congratz!!!!

I did my A&P long ago. You were better off though, you got a degree to go with it, instead of the "diploma" I got. Somehow, diploma does not mean much in the eyes of an HR manager these days.

Baron von L-Duck:

Are you a short dude? I wonder, because in my A&P school I had an instructor who had every license and rating a guy could get. He told us he needed them all so that his wallet would be fat and help him sit high enough to see over the instrument panel.

Congratulations, that is awesome! [sm=thumbup.gif]

The head of the Aviation Dept told us when we were graduating that we "were really going to clean up" when we got out into the working world. We all thought he meant we would clean up with big money paying jobs. What he really meant, was that we would be sweeping up the hangar. lol...

Nah, I wouldn't call it short. I'm 6'1" and built like a tank.

Although, I do have a short beagle. He is built like a beach ball.

Ancient R2800? That's cutting edge technology right there.

I and two others restored an R-1820-97 for our local museum in the spring quarter. There are pictures in the warbirds forum in a thread caled "Radial Overhaul"
