Career of the Week – Aircraft Maintenance Engineer

Are you fascinated with how planes work? Have you considered a career as an aircraft maintenance engineer?  Aircraft maintenance engineers keep aeroplanes safe. They install, inspect, maintain and repair aircraft, aircraft radio, avionic (electronic), navigation, communication and electrical and mechanical systems.

Aircraft maintenance engineers may do some or all of the following:

  • inspect and service engines, propellers and airframes, as well as the hydraulic, ventilation/pressurisation, electronic, and mechanical systems of aircraft, to ensure they operate correctly and meet the safety requirements of the original manufacturer, in accordance with Civil Aviation Authority regulations

  • read and comprehend instructions for continued airworthiness, in written or diagrammatic form

  • diagnose faults

  • repair or replace faulty or beyond-safe life parts or systems

  • test parts and systems to ensure sure they operate correctly

  • use electronic test equipment to view structures without taking them apart (non-destructive testing)

  • keep records of repairs.

Licensed aircraft engineers also inspect, supervise and approve the work of other aircraft maintenance engineers.
