Any Aviation Structural Mechanics in the house?

Im down here at NATTC and I just started AM AWAT. I was wondering if anyone knows of any books or study material I can get my hands on now to get a head start on hydraulics?

I was an aviation electricians mate for ten years. I would look up the stuffy material for your advancement exam. You can ask one of the instructor about getting the pubs. Also there should be an AM 3&2 which is the basics everyone should know in your rate. You can pm me if you have any more in depth questions.

Foxtrot is now the barracks where the well behaved are sent, it has really lax rules and is like a reward for being good and acing your classes. Females are housed in Delta now.

I just started AM AWAT so no word on next command, but im putting down P-3s in San Diego, P-3s and UH-60s at Wigbe(spelling?) on my dreamsheet

There are no P-3s in San Diego and there are no helos in Whidbey Is. P-3s are in Jacksoville, Fl, Whidbey Is.,Hawaii and Japan. Helos are in San Diego, Norfolk Va, Mayport/Jacksonville Fl., Hawaii and Japan.

Being an Airframer, none of those 2 platforms are ideal. P-3s are old and big so there are a lot of body stress to deal with. Helos just get exposed to a lot of salt so there might be a lot of corrosion prevention stupid work...something as a Airframer that you will learn to deal with a lot, specially if you get send to corrosion shop.

P-3s are going to be converting to P-8 soon, but still a big airplane with lots of moving surfaces for you to deal with.

Hornets are easy because everything is sort of modular and it is a small airplane (this is nice when you have to do a swing job). If you get to go on Legacy Hornets (A-D) then you will eventually move up to the F-35. Don't know much about the Airframe side of the house on this one but it is a new jet and smaller.

E-2/C-2 are sort of big but they are old. Anything old will have move frame stress.

and if you like Air Force Bases then you have the E-6 in Tinker AFB in Oklahoma but those are hard to get.

I'm not a AM but I'm an AOC with 17 years and this is what I have heard from airframers.

Good luck and study hard in "A" school so you can get that crow.
