In Aerospace careers, the sky is the limit! Would you like to work on the heavy maintenance of 747s for an international airline? Or maybe you'd prefer repairing jet fighters and helicopters for the defence forces...?
Modern aircraft are highly complex structures and are made up of hundreds (or thousands) of different components and systems, which all need to be both manufactured and maintained to stringent safety standards.
This is a fascinating and fulfilling area for people who like aircraft, have a strong attention to detail, and love solving complex problems. You could work in aero-structure components, engineering and avionics systems, light aircraft, satellite components, telecommunications, remote sensing or navigation equipment.
There are great opportunities for skilled people to work in Aeronautical Engineering, Structural Maintenance, Mechanical Maintenance and Avionics. Those who undertake the extra training to become Licensed Aircraft Maintenance Engineers, or LAMEs, are particularly in demand.
