Time to Get "Schooled"

“If the road you travel has no obstacles - it leads nowhere”

Consider this a bit of an announcement for me.

On August 26th, I began taking courses in Aircraft Powerplant Maintenance theory at Mount San Antonio College in Walnut, Ca.

The reasons for why I want to take it are simple.  It interests me, and I think revisiting the nuts and bolts of why things work will make me both a better engineer and 3D CAD operator. 

Plus, it's something I've always wanted to do, and with the encouragement of an old "Phantom Phixer" who told me I could do it, and he'd help me do it, if I decided to go for it.

So I made a decision to try, and perhaps fail miserably.  But I'd rather be 80 years old saying "I tried and failed" then be 80 years old saying "I wish I'd tried".

That's all well and good, but why mention it here?

 Because the classes are very time consuming.  I'll be taking them Monday through Friday, every evening from about 530PM to 1030PM at night.

The first project.  Disassembly & inspection of a Carburetor

As a result, I may not be posting quite as much here as I have in the past, or my postings might just take a turn toward what I'm learning in class.

The carburetor is apart!

ut I'll still try to keep posting!  So even though they may not come as quickly, they'll keep coming!
