An aircraft mechanic is someone who maintains and repairs aircraft.
Aircraft mechanics specialize in the maintenance of aircraft engines, hydraulic and pneumatic systems, avionics, landing gear, and aircraft structures.
Aircraft mechanics work both indoors and outdoors.
Often, aircraft mechanics work in multiple environments such as hangars, repair shops, airports, and aircraft manufacturing facilities.
Aircraft mechanics work both individually and as part of a team.
They may perform maintenance on aircraft, engines, and hydraulic systems, and have direct contact with customers.
Aircraft mechanics also supervise other mechanics.
