Not so much anymore. Worked on aircraft in Gen Av sheet metal mostly until '81 then at Boeing for a year in 767 flight test instrumentation, then more instrumentation for small aircraft mfg. and Gen Av stuff until '89 then started flying floatplanes in Alaska. Did that all over the place (SE Alaska, Maldives, Dubai, Seattle, BC) until 2011 then bowed out. Still do a ferry job or a trip for a private float plane owner once in a while and 4-5 annuals a year, but mostly retired and overhauling old Rolls & Bentley engines and Italian bike restorations / maintenance.
I went to Atlanta Area Tech for the A&P course. Is that where you went or does it still even exist? BTW, I grew up near Ashford-Dunwoody & 285 / Chamblee High School. Atlanta? Can't stand it now, though I have to admit NOWHERE has better BBQ. Then there's Savannah - cracked crab and hush puppies!
You may have heard of a Ducati guy that had a shop some years back in Athens GA - John Hoffman / Cycle Specialties. He was the guy that got me interested in motorcycles way back when he had a gas station / Volvo repair up the hill from the VA hospital in Decatur. You have a Ducati?

They didn't have any spots available at the time, so I eventually got hired in with Delta working on ground support equipment (still in the same shop to this day). I have finished an Airframe and Powerplant curriculum at the local tech school and need to go test for my certifications. Are you still in the aviation field?
