Job Description for Flight Engineer

Flight engineers perform a number of tasks as a member of the flight crew such as flight planning, checks before flights and checks while the aircraft is in flight (including during landing, taking off and cruising). They pay attention to aspects of the airplane such as electrical systems, engines, propellers and fuel status to help make sure that the flight is running smoothly and that no mechanical issues are present. The engineer answers questions and responds to concerns from the captain, including providing advice to the captain when the flight needs to be landed in an emergency situation. Additionally, flight engineers must properly document all checks and changes performed. Flight engineers may work on military or civilian flights, and some functions require the flight engineer to serve a dual duty as a first officer.
