This letter is to express my interest in an entry level A&P Mechanic position in San Diego. As the first to graduate from my class at Miramar College, I believe that my education and professionalism in the workplace will make me a competitive candidate for this position.

As part of my education I acquired the skills and knowledge to troubleshoot and perform both airframe and powerplant maintenance in accordance with approved data. Some of these include, skin repairs, propeller tracking, NDI, compression test, control surface balancing, magneto timing, servicing of oleo struts, engine overhaul, servicing of batteries, research of AD?s, SB?s, STC?s, TCDS?s, FAR?s, and proper documentation of the work performed. I also worked as a part time tool crib attendant at Miramar College while attending school.

The key strengths that I possess for success in this position include, but are not limited to the following:
? Strong mechanical skills.
? I am a self-starter and eager to learn new things.
? Obtained my airframe and powerplant license.
