Job Description for Avionics Technician
An avionics technician completes maintenance on airplanes and helicopters and also inspects airplanes, helicopters and other equipment essential to the flying industry such as missile guidance systems, flight-control equipment and jet engines. Many technicians are trained and employed through the armed forces, although it is also very possible to be employed by an airplane hangar, a repair station or an airfield. Training in these instances usually occurs through a certificate program or an Associate’s degree obtained at a community or junior college. As job growth is somewhat unpredictable, those who have a Bachelor’s degree in aircraft maintenance from a four-year college have a leg-up on their competition. All avionics technicians must be certified through a Federal Aviation Administration approved program. Many aerospace companies provide their own training schools where their own product line is emphasized.
