Mechanic’s Creed

Upon my honor I swear that I shall hold in sacred trust the rights and privileges conferred

upon me as a certified mechanic. Knowing full well that the safety and lives of others are

dependent upon my skill and judgment, I shall never knowingly subject others to risks

which I would not be willing to assume for myself, or for those dear to me.


In discharging this trust, I pledge myself never to undertake work or approve work which

I feel to be beyond the limits of my knowledge, nor shall I allow any non-certificated

superior to persuade me to approve aircraft or equipment as airworthy against my better

judgment, nor shall I permit my judgment to be influenced by money or other personal

gain, nor shall I pass as airworthy aircraft or equipment about which I am in doubt, either

as a result of direct inspection or uncertainty regarding the ability of others who have

worked on it to accomplish their work satisfactorily.


I realize the grave responsibility which is mine as a certified airman, to exercise my

judgment on the airworthiness of aircraft and equipment. I therefore, pledge unyielding

adherence to these precepts for the advancement of aviation and for the dignity of my
