More about this skill

A high level of expertise is needed to make sure that aircraft are serviced to rigorous quality and safety standards. An aircraft maintenance technician may specialize in vehicles like helicopters, UAVs (Unmanned Aeronautical Vehicles), or tilt wing aircraft.

The skill calls for technical troubleshooting, repairing, and maintenance of all types of aircraft. As part of a growing and mobile global industry that is increasingly venturing into space, the aircraft maintenance technician will find that the sky is no longer the limit.
