Program Overview

Aircraft mechanics and technicians repair and perform scheduled maintenance on aircraft. They also may perform aircraft inspections as required by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). They work in hangars, in repair stations, or on airfields. They must often meet strict deadlines to maintain flight schedules. The environment can be loud because of aircraft engines and equipment. Workers frequently bend, stoop and reach from ladders and scaffolds. Most mechanics and technicians work full time; overtime and weekend work is common. After completing all repairs, mechanics must test the equipment to ensure that it works properly.


Median annual salaries for aircraft mechanics and service technicians were $58,896 in June 2015. The average hourly wage was $28. For more information visit
