I've met a few mechanics that don't ever care to fly.  They have to buckle in if thre is a need to go along for T & B or in flight functional checks but would rather not.  More than one I know gets airsick.  Does this make them less than stellar mechanics?  No, it makes them people who don't care much for flying and the world is full of them.  Is it better if the mechanic is not uncomfortable flying, sure it is.  Come to think of it, has anyone out there ever said to their mechanic " hey why don't you come along?" and had them reply  "ahhhh, no thanks, I don't think I did my best work; why don't you just go by yourself?  Or else give me a few minutes to fix some stuff I didn't bother with".   Of course not, so what difference does it make except possibly that you want to take someone with you when you pile it in.  Dubious motive.  Perhaps you think the mechanic will have some insight if an emergency pops up.  Believe me you don't want to be talking to them, just fly the aircraft until you are on the ground (one way or another).
