    Did you start out as crew chief in the CAF you would have to be a qualified fitter or rigger and then after a few years 6-10 get nominated for training as a flight engineer

    In the US Army you first start out as a UH-60 Blackhawk mechanic. You normally start out in the Maintenance Company and just work on them on the ground. After you prove yourself and learned eneogh about the aircraft and a Flight Company (Squadron) has a slot open they will pull you in and train you as a Crew Chief (Flight Engineer). I was fortunate and really good at my job and picked up quickly everything you needed to learn and know (even though it is an ever learning experience, the day you stop learning about the aircraft is the day it kills you) and was picked up by a Flight Company after only a few months and spent from 2001 to 2006 in a Flight Company flying every day. I accrued aprox 1500 hours (I have to look in my flight records) including over 640 combat hours and over 360 imminent danger time.
