All components on a helicopter are lifed items, and are subject to flexible servicing, you will be required to carry out these flex ops, and all other snags written down in the A700 (in old money) by Sir or other less beings. You will not be allowed to service or sign for any work, until qualified QM and later QS Ie Q to maintain and Q to sign for. You will be chaperoned for many a year by the Killick or PO of that helicopter. Until you reach the dizzy heights of QS and QM, where your superior will also sign for you work, as supervisory ps also you will run errands for everybody,and run the coffee boat,and fresh water wash the paraffin pidgeon after every flight over the oggin after that you can go ashore ,and spin dits,about the mightyFAA and call yourself a real grubber
I used to be old school AE (Airframes & Engines.) The servicing was as Scouse described in them thar days. However, technology moves along and so I assume does the servicing needs. There was much mention of modular aircraft, ie, whole sections would be replaced with minimal manpower and effort. Serviceability of modern aircraft has got better so servicing may have been amended to reflect this.
However, I imagine all aircraft, rotary or FW will have before flight and after flight checks or inspections. Normally involc=ving the checking of fluid levels in gearbox's, engines etc. avionic suites need checking.
Specifics will be dependant on aircraft type. You get very good training so I wouldn't worry overly about the nitty gritty. Military aircraft a re generally said to be over serviced but when you look at what they are expected to do you will soon understand why!
What a load of cods!!! You get out what you put in. If you don't talk to any one they are not going to talk to you. Having spent time on Frigates and carriers as a Woo, as a mechanic and aircrewman I found it is all about characters.
You get out of life what you put in. Yes the fisheads and clankies are going to take the piss out of us because of our Wooness but throw it back - it's called banter. FFS!!!!!
