Here are two videos illustrating one of the key components of aviation maintenance: trouble-shooting. Trouble-shooting is the process of identifying a problem, working to find the source of the problem, and then arriving at a solution to the problem.
The first video identifies a problem discovered while preparing the Chad 206 for its successful test flight Monday afternoon. The second video shares the source of the problem and the solution. These are great and really provide an interesting insight into the day to day reality of maintaining missionary aircraft around the world. Paul, one of our apprentice mechanics, is the videographer.
