doing some research and it looks like
you have a common theme here. Could

we put together a box that makes sense
for your students?'" Sasso recounts.

other aspects, as well - chiefly shadowing the toolbox, which Sasso says helps
teach students a valuable lesson.
"Sonic has this great idea where
they've pre-shadowed all the toolboxes,
and tool control is paramount in aviation
and so having the shadowing in the toolbox, it makes the mechanic or trains the
younger mechanic to keep track of their
tools, and to make sure they don't end up
in an airplane somewhere," says Sasso.
Shadowing may not be a new technique for toolboxes. Used in the automotive tooling world for efficiency, Saxton
says that he recognized that tool control
was the paramount advantage to a shadowed aviation toolbox.
"When I came on board with the company back in 2016, I saw the value of
the shadowing in the aviation world,
which was tool control. It was nothing
about efficiency, but tool control. So, we
built a box back in 2016, went after the
aviation world, caught the attention of
a few people, and then evolved our box
according," Saxton says.
No doubt the features of Sonic Tools'
box are helpful for the budding aviation
mechanic, however, there remains the
issue of sticker shock and a mechanic leaving school with either no or an
inadequate set of tools. This, though,
too Sonic Tools has covered by offering
financing to AIM students.
"We've got some programs set up that
help with financing and stuff for the people who are with lower-end credit scores.
So, we have a program with them that
helps ensure that almost all their students
have the ability to have tools when they
leave there, regardless of their credit or
