Aircraft Maintenance Engineers (AME) have the important responsibility of keeping aircraft operating safely and efficiently. It's not just important -lives depend on it.

AMEs are the frontline aviation professionals that service, repair and overhaul aircraft components and systems including airframes, engines, electrical and hydraulic systems, propellers, avionics equipment and aircraft instruments.
As an AME, you might work on one or many different types of aircraft such as jets, propeller-driven airplanes and helicopters. To keep aircraft in peak operating condition, AMEs perform scheduled maintenance and complete inspections that have to meet the strictest industry regulations. There are no exceptions. You have to be a perfectionist with excellent communication skills and an unshakable commitment to safety. In addition, it all changes very rapidly. Innovations in space-age technology mean that AMEs have to be front-runners in their field in order to meet the rapid advances in computer technology, electronics and fiber composite structural material. It is fast, intense, deadline-driven and very high tech. If you are looking for a challenging career with limitless potential, be sure to look into becoming an Aircraft Maintenance Engineers (AME).
