If ur gonna pick maitenance go aircraft metals tech 2a751. Im in it, you work in a small machine and welding shop.If you wanna do this or a specific carrer field just tell your recruiter and wait him out. I waited 9 months for this job, theres always openings. Dont let him tell you to go open general in any field. I was at a big base we had 20 people, now im at a small base we have 6 its pretty laid back world. What would be a better skill machinest/welder or an egress mechanic on an f-16 ejection seat ? All jobs have there perks.
