Message from M1 Support Services

Our Home Office is receiving a high volume of calls from Rucker employees to enquire as to why they have not received their offer letter or when are they going to receive their offer letter.

We need your assistance.  Please get the word out to all bargaining unit employees that we are sending offer letters out systematically.  Please let them know that their letter will be sent out as soon the schedule permits.  We ask that they do not call the office just to ask when they will receive their letter.  You can assure them they will be hearing from us.  However, should they not hear from us by the end of February, they should let us know at that time.

Thank you so much for your continued support!

The Aircraft Mechanic’s Creed

Aircraft Mechanics Creed

Upon my honor I swear that I shall hold in sacred trust the rights and privileges conferred upon me as a certified aircraft mechanic. Knowing full well that the safety and lives of others are dependent upon my skill and judgment. I shall never knowingly subject others to risks which I would not be willing to assume for myself, or those dear to me.

In discharging this trust, I pledge myself never to undertake work or approve work which I feel to be beyond the limits of my knowledge, nor shall I allow any non-certificated superior to persuade me to approve aircraft or equipment as airworthy against my better judgment, nor shall I permit my judgment to be influenced by money or other personal gain, nor shall I pass as airworthy, aircraft or equipment about which I am in doubt, either as a result of direct inspection or uncertainty regarding the ability of others who have worked on it to accomplish their work satisfactory. I realize the grave responsibility which is mine as a certified airman, to exercise my judgment on the airworthiness of aircraft and equipment. I therefore, pledge unyielding adherence to these precepts for the advancement of aviation and for the dignity of my vocation.
