Lockheed-Martin c-130

Lockheed’s C-130 transport plane has a unique set of requirements for maintenance that include, for example, its hydraulically operated ramp at the rear of the fuselage. Over the years, many variations on the initial design were developed, for example, aerial gun ships, search and rescue operations, airborne refueling, and the transport of Special Forces. Keeping these large planes maintained requires technicians that understand radar, hydraulics, radio, instrumentation, fuel systems, and the accessory systems that enable the many variations of C-130.
