  • New chick on the board

    Hey guys! I hope you are not offended by my username. RCO is the only thing I've done for 3.5 years now so I figured it was fitting.
    I don't want to give my home terminal because I have a bad habit of saying things and God knows who's surfing these boards.

    I'm 43, hired on in 2005 after 20 years as an aircraft mechanic.

              Hey RCObitch- welcome to the best site ever!! Glad you found us!!!Feel free to look around,join in and make your-self at home!! I'm known around here as Fatboy(susie) and I hired on in 1994-engine service in 1999 and currently work as a yard flat switcher engineer in central Indiana.So tell me is the rco as complicated as I've heard? Don't know if I'd be co-ordinated enough to do that. And I also like your name-kinda take charge and get er done sounding!!

                  I worked on the KC-135R and believe it or not, 3 weeks after being furloughed I was able to hire out at the airbase as a civilian mechanic.
                  It works out great because this job will only last another 18 months as the tankers are leaving and they needed us to help with the drawdown.

                      RCOs are really easy once you get the hang of it but the biggest drawback is misjudging how the engine will stop. I have really messed up some expensive shit out here!

                        Seems like everything is either big, expensive, or both out there.

                          I witnessed a $500,000 sideswipe from an RCO going a "little" too fast. Maybe you could come here and teach them how to stop using air and not Newton's third law of motion.......LOL
