My first command, first tour
I'm and and all at the same time.
No other CDI's in the house?
Nobody knows what CDI is.
I have no clue what you are talking about.
Did you mean CID? That's the only thing I can think of.
CDI = Collateral Duty Inspector
Ok, based on my Google-fu skills,
Ok, so he's a Navy guy, who does quality assurance type inspections in various work sections.
Ahh, background information makes everything better.
i know what the shit is they sign in and out tools watch torques deal with controls gripes delegate duties yeh my shop has about 5 cdi 2-3 cdqar
I'm the guy who signes the MAF of saying it was done by the book.
I can troubleshoot with the best of them, I just haven't had good wire connector repair training...
yea i just got min last week too, but it was long over due. so you an avionics man huh? same here. what kind of wire repair you talking about?
CH-46 13A CDI
Coax/Triax is the devil.
That's a lot of long hours right there lol
I always get 13A mixed up... that's the AME's right?
If I remember right.. yeah
Trying to remember what the riggers went by
And you are a CDI who can't fix wires?
Juss kidding, but seriously that is a flaw in your training you need to get patched asap.
Its easy shit.. fly me out to where ever and I'll have you up to speed in no time
Coax/Triax is the ONLY think I haven't had any experience with. My WCR course consisted of a 6 hour day tought by someone who didn't know what he was doing. Thankfully that stuff is few and far between. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said of Kapton.
you should have a wcr (wire connector repair manual) that will have the proper procedures for doing it. Then just order a few different spare coax connectors and wire. Just sit in the shop and practice till you have it down.
Oh we've got all the manuals you could want, I just never get around to it, and yeah, I was thinking about that the other day.
220/320 CDI here. Congrats on the qual. Always remember that you don't have to sign off on it unless you feel that it's been done properly, and that if someone (maintenance usually) is giving you shit about something, QA has your back. I've found myself in a few sticky situations and those guys helped out, so don't ever hesitate to do the right thing and call in some help if you need it.
That's how I do things, if I don't know and I can't find it in the pubs... I ask someone... never assume, and yeah, maintenance can kiss my ass, I'm the one signing it off, not them. I've never done shitty maintenance, and I never will... that's an easy way to a short career.
