# The Tea

Ever since I was a kid, planes fascinated me and I sort of always wanted to work with my hands. Now, thanks to this apprenticeship, I'm actually working on them! It's not all glamour, there's precision and problem-solving involved. But seeing a plane I helped maintain take off smoothly, is an incredible feeling. This apprenticeship is the perfect blend of hands-on learning and technical knowledge. I'm excited to see where this journey takes me in the world of aviation!
