Everywhere I have worked so far there has been a shortage of avionic techs (and A&P's as well)
I don't think it will be as hard to find a job as you think.
But you should be willing to relocate.....
The Classroom / The scary part begins.

Six years ago, I started this journey called college. So, after some ups and downs, I'm finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel.

I started college because I have demonstrated myself to be the world's worst at getting a job at all. I've had many odd-jobs. When it comes to resumes, applications, and interviews, I just can't seem to pull it together. That's what I'm going to have to start doing in the summer of 2014. (My classes finish in August.)

I'm going to be a qualified, but green avionics guy. Whether I get all of the certifications I've taken the coursework for is dubious, but that's really not the part I'm worried about.

Anyone out there tripping over themselves trying to find an avionics tech?

However, whatever you do: Don't get underneath a Chinook ! ! !

Reminds me of something our eternal friend, Wolfgang Langewiesche says about the principle of lift: "the wing keeps the airplane up by pushing the air down."

For the one or two of you who don't remember, Wolfgang Langewiesche is the author of Stick and Rudder.

Anyone else excited that it is on for 2014 again?

I think Chuck should try to enter! That aerobatic stunt he did when the spider was in the cockpit would I am sure get him confused for a race pilot!

Or Chuck decides to visit one of the venues on holiday, and does a low pass over one of the monuments, and gets stuck in the middle of the race. I can see it happening!

Anyway I am going to go to the Malaysia race, it is too good an opportunity not to. I wish it was still in Perth, but Malaysia is actually cheaper for me to get to from Brisbane!

Anyone going?

Yep. Flying Cranes now. They ARE massive and cool just like you said.  ;)

Not sure about stepping it up on even bigger helos, the crane is big enough for now ....
