Working towards A&P part-time?


Well-Known Member
I'd like to get my A&P, however I don't want to quit flying to do it. I know its 18 months experience for airframe or powerplant, and 30 for both. I've been working on cars/motorcycles/etc for over 10 years and even did a short stint at a BMW dealership as a mechanic.

I had an idea, that perhaps I could volunteer my time to help out at shops while on the road for my current flying job. Would time here and there, at different places, count towards total experience?


Exploring the world one toilet at a time.
Yes, it will count. You'll just have to document your apprenticeship. Under an A&P or at a repair station.
