What's your day job?

Recommended Posts

Since we all laugh, cry, stress and anguish about flightsim together almost every day, it'll be interesting to know what everyone does

 

I work in the investment sector in regulatory compliance. :hi:

I work as an Engineer and will be taking over as production manager next year (not sure if that's a good or a bad thing tbh!)

 

I set c+c machines to make springs and I also hand coil springs and wire form parts for the medical, automotive, and aerospace industries.

 

I'm also a qualified internal auditor and muck in with Quality assurance when I am able too.

In my case I'm an intern at a composite parts (CFRP, carbon fibre reinforced polymer) manufacturing company in Spain. The good thing about my job is that, although I work in an engineering office with CAD/CAE people, I'm also involved with the manufacturing shop so I see how a part that's drawn in CATIA get's actually made, it's quite "satisfying" to see how things are actually done.

 

Also I'm writing my MSc thesis which I intend to defend by November, so hopefully I'll be an MSc Aeronautical Engineer!

Retired - I highly recommend it!

 

I retired from the City of New York after 28 years in the N.Y.P.D. (as a civilian personnel manager).  But I helped to set-up many computer systems for them in the 1980's - the dawn of the PC age, and LAN's.

 

That's where I first discovered MS FS1, FS2, and later FS1995.  Which of course ultimately led to my current obsession with simulated flight.

I fix biz jets for a major fractional share company, Flexjet.

You mean FlexOptions or FlightJet? ;) Love the new paint jobs going on the CL-350's. New uniforms are a bit different though.

 

Anyhow, on to me. 22 years in aviation in some form or another. Licensed A&P, but currently doing Line Service for a world class FBO here in Florida. I play/work with the real things, and fly the fake ones in my spare time. I think the aviation bug has taken me completely.

Aha, packaging! I thought you might have been the person responsible for my razor going from 2 blades to about 50 (or whatever it is at last count  :P ) but I'm assuming you do the box that they go in  :wink:

Desk side and on site support engineer. Basicly, I'm the IT guy at your office that helps you when:

 

- your laptop is not powering up -> I push the power button as it should be.

- your laptop screen is broken -> I lie to your boss and tell him you did not drop it but a big pink elephant came running thrue the room.

- your Excel crashes when opening some sheets -> I explain you that a 100MB large hidden workbook is not going to help.

- your Outlook is not receiving mails -> I tell you that your password has expired and you refused to change it in the morning.

- your printjob is not coming out of the printer -> get rid of the paperjam by following the instructions that this very same printer is telling you to do.

- tell you your laptop is end of life and can be replaced -> yeah!!!

- wipe your laptop when you got fired -> Doh!

- make fun of the funny userid you got from LDAP

 

etc... :)

Yes 10lbs of crap in a 2lb bag - have size limitations on shelf and gets very frustrating working in those constraints - they are building 500,000$ forming tools from my models so has to be right - so far so good

 

Nice Joel - use to design replacement body parts also (mostly knee and and leg)

Great topic. I'm a software developer for applications used in genetic testing laboratories and clinics, a world apart from my hobbyist programming for flight simulation (I need to keep it interesting and use the hobby as a way to learn new stuff as well)  :smile: .
