The 100 Percent Rule

Which rule is the one that if only one percent of the mechanics broke it, the result would be the complete failure of the aviation maintenance industry?


I apologize for those who didn't need this sermon and for starting the new year off with a somewhat Draconian diatribe along with the associated threats and punishment. As I explained, the need for personal honor and integrity is very important to me and my profession. I hope the 100 percent rule will become just as important to you for the same reasons.
