I'm a ramper for Menzies Aviation (a ground service agent) for 2 years now. First at AMS and now at AKL for the last 6 months. Hope to be back at the station in AMS this year.

Started with BUA in 1970 in the Engineering Time Office, progressed to passenger revenue interline accounts. Got bored, joined the RAF in 1973 as an Engine Mechanic. Moved up to Technician and left 23 years later as a Sergeant.

Then worked for Hunting Airmotive for a while, followed by sheer desperation at Serco, Brize Norton.

Finally made it back to the airline business in 1999 at Manx Airlines as an A&C mechanic working on EMB145's and ATP's. Got fed up with getting dirty after a year and moved into Maintenance Planning.

I am now Maintenance Planning Engineer for the BA Connect Dash 8 fleet along with helping out on the RJ100/BAe146 fleets.

My family also work in the industry. My wife works for Manx Regional (part of Eastern Airways) as a load controller and my eldest son works for Flight Support on the ramp.

Unfortunately, been there, done that.
Never know, one of them may end up on the engineering end of things anyway.
