One of the interesting things about being a diesel fitter at Casey is the constantly changing workload that defines different stages of our season. We have had a great run repairing and maintaining the Wilkins equipment over the past few months and we are now preparing to send some of the gear back up to the runway with the other half of our team, the aviation crew.
Over the coming weeks, all of the machinery for the next flying season will make its way up the hill, and our focus will move to getting the station gear in order. Transferring more fuel from the lower farm to the upper, and preparing our sections so things are in top shape for the next crew, all while supporting the aviation team as the need arises.
It’s an exciting yet busy time of the year for us as we begin to bring machinery out of hibernation, and with more sunshine overhead, the promise of wildlife and new faces returning to mark the end of what has been a great experience for all.
