You say you’re an engineer during the day. What do you do?

My day job is called Experimental Flight Test Instrumentation Operations Engineer. That’s a lot of words. Basically, I work with helicopters (Apaches and Chinooks). In Experimental Flight Test, sometimes people want to switch out parts: a different engine or a new blade. They want to know what the vibrations are (or the temperature or the pressure or how much the metal bends) in a certain area with the experimental part. So my group in Instrumentation puts on all the sensors and collects all the data.
