Who do you know at ACRO? (upper management?)

I understand that ACRO went through some tough times in the last little while, I wonder how they are doing.

I was a PT6T O/H tech for 3 years, and I was one of the longest serving ppl on that line at ACRO.....scary.

Ya the ACRO reworks guys were good poo's, Luis, Otto (ottmatic), etc. (cant remember all their names). You could always count on them to get the job done.

You must know Dave Wark, is he back at AE yet? haha

Cool, I didn't know you worked at Airborne.

My sister works at Atlantic Turbines as an NDT tech and Tig welder. When my dad dropped into the shop to visit one day, her supervisor, a big friendly Newfie told him "If I had 10 more like her I'd be all set" and dad said "well, she's got a brother in Vancouver does the same and's a turbine mech to boot" :laughing

Gave that stuff up years ago though, got tired of breathing metal fumes and glowing in the dark when I went to clubs.

^ I'm sure a piece of you still harks back to the good old days eh? ;)

Somedays I do miss working on the big jets, but I'd never go back into it again permanently.

Yeah, I've always said if I won the lottery I'd go back to it again. The re-work and small production stuff we did was always challenging, never quite the same.

Now I fix companies instead. :coffee
