Nope. It has a very specialized use. And people that might know the person who would use this, who by the way get paid and trusted for using this item, those people are very involved with the whole aspect of its use..... however they might see it laying around and have no idea what it's for until they saw it being used.

And it is used all over the world by these individuals who hold the license requiring this tool. Military, too.

Used by an aviation mechanic to change a flat?

hmmmm, used by a pilot......
That might be like saying that a worker in a textile mill uses that cotton picker tooth thing. They may or may not know what it's for, they may even use something related to its use.
You don't need to be a pilot to use one or be around one, but you aren't exactly freezing cold anymore.....

And the same could be said about an aviation mechanic. You aren't freezing cold, but you need to go a lot further to narrow it down and then guess what it is.

In a very roundabout way, it is more closely associated with aviation.
