I don't do allot of flying but watch that series air crash investigations on sky, you will probably have seen them as-well, they sure put you off flying when you see some of the the maintenance blunders or tech-no failures on air craft, you have a very good job and a very difficult one it must take allot of concentration and carry allot of responsibility

yeah, it is difficult sometimes to find the fault, we fault find to component level and change that component, which can be tricky at times.. ive seen those programs, they definatley do open your eyes as to how impoartant it is to do the job properley, though the depth its checked in it would be hard for a fault to slip through, it has a bench check and test, faultfinding if there is a fault, and then the testing, followed by another check by the supervisor or a tech 1. flying is very safe.. compare it to driving, how many car accidents and deaths are there every day due to driving, then compare that to how many commercial flights there are around the world each day, it is a safe way to travel..
