For anyone working in or at a base mx facility, I'm wondering how many (approx) total mechanics and engineering personnel there are on site.
For anyone working in an MRO, could you guess at what percentage of the technical staff are laid off from other airlines?

Thanks!!

I work for CO (Avionics) at their MCO Tech Ops facility.

We currently have on staff 450 techs, 30 supervisors, 4 shift managers, 2 station managers, 1 engineer, and partridge in a pear tree. Big grin

Most of our engineering support is in Houston. We have only one engineer on site to handle ECRA's and AVO's.

We have 4 check-lines going on in the hangar and line maintenance to handle thru flights and RON checks.

Of the 4 check-lines 2 are 737NG 'C' lines and the other 2 are MOD lines.

In the last 3 years we have hired laid off techs from NWA, Delta, US Airways, United, ATA, and Independence Air.

Currently the percentage of laid off techs here at MCO stands around 20-25% of our total workforce.

Some of these techs have received recall letters from their old airline. But as of right now no one has accepted recall. They have chosen to stay with CO and ride it out here.

Hope this answers your questions. Smile



Is it broke...? Yeah I'll fix it.

I bet a call to them starts with "Houston we have a problem..."  Wink

It all depends on the Organisation concerned.
In our case it would probably be approx 120 techs,4 supervisors,4 AMEs,1 Manager.

Regional airline here. 40 some mechanics, 5 leads, 4 supervisors, 1 manager, 5 QC, 10 stores. Most AOG engineering issues go straight to the manufactorer, anything that can wait we send to HQ. No on location engineers, although they do show up once in a while to watch us do some new task they have came up with.

Most of our workforce is made up of guys straight out of school, only a handful of furloghee's.

Before AS shut down the base mx in SEA, we had 15-18 techs on graves for C-checks, 2 leads and 1 supervisor when I was there.
