How do Technical persons keep updated with the latest in Aviation.Study the notes on the Aircraft/Engine one works daily on & possible future Aircraft notes.
Personally After working 8-10 Normal hrs of Day or Night shifts ,I try to Study 1-2 hrs 5 days a week updating myself on the Systems I currently work on & refer notes on Aircrafts I plan to qualify on in the future.
For general Aviation updates I read Aviation Magazines & surf the net.
The reason I ask this question is understandably Our type of Job leave us very little free time & whatever little free time exists I want to make the most of it.Any suggestions/Tips.
Contarary to this most friends in other fields dont need to work & study as much,so they have more free time on hand.I chose this field cause I Enjoy the Job and they pay me for it,I knew it would involve a lot of reading.No complains there,Just want to know how you all cope up with the same.
Replies Especially from persons working in Maintenance in Airlines would be appreciated.But suggestions from all are welcome.
This may not be a technical question but its a Question related to Technical persons.
