Be an MAF Aircraft Engineer

Aircraft maintenance engineers and avionics technicians keep our aircraft operational. Without engineers, there would be no life-transforming flying. There are several types of roles needed.

Experience Required

MAF engineer candidates will need to demonstrate an International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) based aviation maintenance licence. Avionics technicians will also need to hold an ICAO based licence and in some cases manufacturers courses.

In addition, candidates will need to demonstrate:

2 years practical experience preferred for engineer roles

3-4 years practical experience for experienced engineer roles

5+ years practical experience for chief engineer roles.

Work is undertaken on a variety of fixed-wing aircraft, such as Cessna 206, 208, Gippsland GA-8, DHC-6 and their engines (TCM/CMI IO-550, Lycoming IO-540 and P&WC PT6A turboprop).

Engineering Roles

MAF engineers

Aircraft maintenance engineers work closely with the chief engineer as part of the maintenance team working on single piston and/or turbine engine aircraft.

Experienced engineers

Experienced engineers are responsible for training and supervision of unlicensed aviation staff, and assisting with planning and scheduling of maintenance.

Chief engineers

Chief engineers are responsible for the management of the maintenance team and overall maintenance operation within an MAF hangar. They are also responsible for budgeting, hangar and stock control, supervision and training.

Avionics technicians

Avionics technicians are responsible for installation and maintenance of aircraft avionics both in the avionics shop and on the aircraft. They may also be responsible for HF radio ground station maintenance.
