Don't forget your general aircraft TMs.

[ILLUSTRATION OMITTED]

Mechanics, aircraft maintenance manuals contain valuable information to help maintain your birds. But it's a mistake to forget to check your general aircraft TMs.

Not everything you need to know to take care of your Chinooks, Kiowa Warriors, Black Hawks and AH-64s is included in the maintenance manuals. There's more information in the general aircraft TMs that can help you.

Some new mechanics may not know--or they forget--that general aircraft TMs contain information about parts, components, cannon plugs, and wiring.

So before you say something can't be fixed, check the general aircraft TMs. They also contain information that covers hardware and consumables, shop practices, tools, ground support equipment and much more.
