Airman 1st Class Ndirangu Njambi and Airman Weston Milan, 364th Training Squadron hydraulic systems apprentice students, operate a portable hydraulic test stand provider at Sheppard Air Force Base, Texas. This provides external hydraulic power to the aircraft, allowing hydraulic systems to operate without running the engines. (U.S. Air Force photo by Senior Airman Robert L. McIlrath)

Staff Sgt. Dawson Parker, 364th Training Squadron electrical and environmental systems apprentice course instructor, directs his students, Airmen Trenton Jackson and Tyler Bethone, on how to replace the bleed air check valve at Sheppard Air Force base, Texas. The valve prevents shutdown of the environmental control system, which if shut down would result in loss of the anti-G system that prevents the pilot from passing out due to the severe effects of G-force.

Airmen Edzel Gaytano and Cody Jernberg, 364th Training Squadron electrical and environmental systems apprentice course students, change out a transformer rectifier on an F-15 Eagle at Sheppard Air Force Base, Texas. The rectifier converts 115 volts of alternate current down to 28 volts of direct current. This device is critical in operating relays or transferring power form one source to another.
