Default Garmin Aviation Maintenance Instructor

Hello!

I just wanted to throw this out there in case any of you have experience installing and/or maintaining Garmin avionics (or even Honeywell, Collins, King, etc) and would like to teach installation and maintenance courses at Garmin. Don't let "Olathe, Kansas" scare you off---we are really close to Kansas City and this is a cool place to live-- Lee's Summit in particular has a very healthy Experimental community.

This is to fill my position. I'm moving over to Experimental Tech Support...

Job details below:

The tech support is really good for installation type questions, but I've not found a source for questions on some of the little details of operating the system. When I do get transferred to pilot ops, the wait times are horrendous -- after waiting to get through to tech support. Hope a change is in the works!

Thanks,

Ed
