Aircraft Mechanic's Creed

The Mechanic's Creed was originally written by Jerome Lederer in 1941. The creed appeared on the back cover of the first issues of Flight Safety Foundation's Aviation Mechanics Bulletin in 1953 and proved to be extremely popular. Mechanics around the world, "from Tokyo to Frankfurt, from Canada to Puerto Rico," wrote to request copies to hang in their offices and shops.
