    AV80R in TN - July 1-15 2019

    Iíll be in Lebanon, TN from July 1-15 attending an airframe & powerplant mechanicís course at Baker School of Aeronautics.

    https://www.bakersschool.com/ap

    Sunday July 7th and 14th are my only two free days. Every other day Iím either in class or with the examiner.

    I know Tacmedic and Perko are close...any other members want to meet up?

    Iíve never been to Nashville. What are your must see recommendations to a newb without a lot of time?

    If all goes well, Iíll be coming home a licensed mechanic after wrenching on planes for more than 30 years under my stepdadís license.

    I have 3 written tests, an oral, and practical exam to get done in that 2 week period. Wish me luck.

    I'll figure something out for one of those dates Arash. Lebanon is just east of downtown Nashville about 20 miles.

    Let me check the schedule. Maybe Stormy Daniels is dancing at Deja Vu in downtown one of those dates.

    You have to attend the hoedown in Watertown. It's a real eye opener. lol. Not sure of the dates or if they even still do it. I used to ride dirt bikes and ATVs at the Cedars of Lebanon state park and bow hunt at the Gallatin Steam Plant near there. It's a very cool place. Good luck on your test...like you need it.

    Lower Broadway in Nashville can be a fun place. Lots of music & entertainment, sure there is country music but so much more. Cracker Barrel HQ is also in Lebanon Lebanon is not pronounced the same as the country. Take Tac up on his offer, he lives in a great suburb of Nashville, just on a different side.

    Re: AV80R in TN - July 1-15 2019

    Oh yeah, you never have to do the math in your head for the written exams.

    And you can bring reference material for the practical exam.

    This certification allows you to work on everything from a Piper Cub to a Boeing 747, so thereís no way to know it all...you just have to prove you know how and where to find the data you need to do the job.

    Three written tests, 70% required to pass.

    - General
    - Airframe
    - Powerplant

    And then you spend a day with an FAA examiner in his shop doing whatever he wants and answering his questions.

    The experience I have definitely helps, but Iím going to be at the mercy of that experienced examiner.

    Iíve seen worse than me get the license so I have that going for me
