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.

Expect delays this Friday on your way to work and of Friday is your off day, your first day back to work.Fort Rucker will begin registering ID cards into the Automated Installation Entry program Friday. People with scannable, DOD-issued ID cards (e.g. common access cards (CAC), retiree ID, family member ID, etc.) will be registered with AIE when their ID is scanned at any of our operational gates during normal operating hours. Registration will take about 10 seconds per ID card.

Contractors who use DA Form 1602 and their state-issued driver’s license to access post must register with AIE at either the Daleville or Ozark visitor control center during normal operating hours. Once registered, contractors will present their DA 1602 and driver’s license to a DA security guard at the gate to be scanned. Contractors have until Dec. 15 to register with AIE. Once this grace period ends, contractors must register with AIE at either the Daleville or Ozark VCC during normal operating hours.

Access policy for visitors without DOD-issued identification remains mostly unchanged. Visitors who currently have a valid visitor pass issued prior to Oct. 9 have until Nov. 17 to register with AIE. Once this grace period ends, visitors must register with AIE at either the Daleville or Ozark VCC during normal operating hours. Visitors’ ID will be registered with AIE during the visitor pass application process. The process normally takes less than 10 minutes; once complete, the visitor will receive their access credential. Visitor passes are issued for the duration of the visitor’s stay (e.g. five days to attend a graduation). Unsponsored visitor passes can be issued for up to six months; sponsored visitor passes can be issued for one year.

People can expect some traffic delays at the gate once AIE registration begins and should allow for additional travel times, especially during morning hours. We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you in advance for your patience. Visit our website at home.army.mil/rucker/index.php/visit for more details.
