Wherever the Air Force has planes, you'll find Aircraft Metals Technology specialists because when it comes to machining parts, welding and creating things from scratch, they are the best of the best. Need a bushing built? Done. Need a never-before-seen problem solved? No sweat. Need someone to wield an arc welder with the precision of a surgeon? Easy. If an Aircraft Metals Technology specialist can't make it, then it can't be made.
