  • As a note to those that have never worked on Hawkers:

    The hell hole really is hell. The aircraft I worked on (400's - 800"s), you would have to remove the batteries to even get in the hole.

    Once in there, you're working on your back reaching for shit that can't be reached and cursing the engineers the whole time.

    I rate the Hawker right up there with the Lear as being the "funnest" corporate aircraft to work on.

  • I've never heard a a fire bottle thermal discharging. Is there a discharge plug?
    Lucky you found the duct..... or that little gig would of just kept on repeating.
    Hawker maintenance references are limited to none. Plus the fact that they're not making the aircraft anymore. I haven't dealt with one since they were sold to Beech.
    Do the wiring manuals still come in long fold open sheets (ratty and worn)?

    Have you ever viewed the main gear from the side of the aircraft. Check it out..... they're offset.

  • As aircraft become more digitized and automated, the role of a mechanic is expanding to software tech specialist also.

    I have only had a chance to work on older aircraft, so my exposure to some of the newer systems is limited.

    I have been dealing with ACARS, EGPWS, and  WQAR  software as of late. Of those three, ACARS and EGPWS have been around for 2+ decades. So I wouldn't call them "new" at all.

    Good job on the fix though.

    I do find it funny that they place stock prices on the top of their list to view.

    Wow.... very nice troubleshooting.

    Since starting to work on the 767, the majority of issues is caused by wiring.

    The occurrences increase with age.

    You would think most would be "outside the pressure vessel", but this doesn't seem to be the case with this aircraft.

    The back of the MEC rack is a very busy an we're finding a ton of problems in that area.
