Pushing The 402 Toward Completion

Mike's team of mechanics is pushing hard to have Wings With the Word's Cessna 402 project completed by the end of October.

Note added 2/22/11: The orange vests that Mike, Andy, and Mark are wearing while rigging the landing gear let everyone else in the hangar know that they are not to be talked to, disturbed, interrupted, or otherwise distracted while performing their tasks. The orange vests create a situation where the respective maintenance crew can be completely focused on the job at hand. We call it "Going Orange". Each crew that "goes orange" designates a contact person, not involved in the task, through whom all communication can be directed.

The orange vests can also be used in administrative applications.

We've found the simple system to work rather well.

GREAT QUESTION! I've added a note to the blog explaining the use and meaning of the orange vests!

I like the orange vest idea. Maybe we should implement that where I work...

Great "going orange" idea. Perhaps you all could design your own wacky vests and call it "going crazy"!?! Just a thought. See you guys soon! Steve

And if every day in the hangar was like yesterday (three different projects all trying to fly at the same time)...we WOULD call it going crazy...be watching for the Asas 206 First Flight video...
