Job Description for Aircraft Engineer
An aircraft engineer is the person responsible for ensuring that airplanes within a fleet of air services providers are properly maintained, repaired, and safe for flight. The engineer performs a variety of daily inspections on different aircraft, logs the results of any anomalies or tests performed on the airplanes, and performs or oversees any necessary repairs and re-inspections.Read More...
Many of the inspections that aircraft engineers perform on planes are of the routine variety. These inspections typically involve examination and/or testing of flight and aircraft mechanical systems while the plane is on the ground. The engineer will typically log the result of all tests, and these test logs are filed and kept for inspection by any authorities who request them in the future. In addition to these routine tests, many aircraft have specialized in-depth inspections that must be performed periodically. The engineer also carries these more in-depth assessments of the craft's flight-worthiness and carries out any corrective actions that might need to be taken.
Aircraft engineers typically are persons who either have university degrees in aerospace engineering or some related discipline. They at least need to have extensive post-secondary school training in aircraft repair and maintenance. Most jurisdictions require accreditation and demonstration of continuing education by aircraft engineers as a stipulation for holding this job. Aircraft engineers typically work in an aviation mechanical shop environment during regular business hours of the week. (Copyright 2018 PayScale.com)
