forms the necessary maintenance on the SE

By now, you should realize that the role the
AZ plays in the Naval Aviation Maintenance
Program is an important one. Regardless of your
assignment, at sea or ashore, in a squadron or an
AIMD, the basic concept of providing safe,
reliable aircraft is our primary objective. To meet
this objective, the Navy must rely upon you, the
AZ, to provide detailed, exact information in a
timely fashion. Learn your references and use
them on a daily basis. Your job will become
easier, and you will be respected for being a
professional by doing it right the first time. Now
lets study the rating in more detail.
