Aerospace Technology

post secondary

Aerospace Technology technicians install, maintain, repair and overhaul aeronautical products including mechanical, electrical, hydraulic and computerized equipment. They must rigorously check and inspect equipment to make sure hazards are identified and corrected, and that they meet Transport Canada standards of safety and performance.

Their work typically consists of assembling and disassembling equipment, inspecting it or performing routine maintenance, such as cleaning/lubricating or adjusting components and systems. An aircraft maintenance technician may specialise in specific aircraft systems as part of an AMO (Aircraft Maintenance Organization) shop such as engines, airframes, avionics or hydraulics.

With experience, aircraft maintenance technicians may progress to becoming a licensed AME. From this base, an AME can career path to many different areas within the Aviation Industry including but not limited to Aircraft Maintenance Supervisors, Inspectors etc.
