For an Aircraft Test Technician, daily assigned work may include within the Final Assembly environment:
1. Use a computer in a production environment.
2. Look up/read/comprehend technical work instructions, drawings and/or specifications.
3. Perform operational/production testing, troubleshooting and rework/repair of all aircraft systems before, during and after final assembly. These tests will include electrical/electronic, pressure (positive and negative), hydraulic and mechanical systems using airplane diagnostic systems and PC based and non PC based tests equipment.
4. Technicians will be working on a live aircraft and will be exposed to airplane and facilities hazardous energy levels (e.g., electricity, fluid and gaseous pressure, noise, etc.).
Depending on your work environment and assigned work the following tools and materials may be used:
1. Appropriate protective clothing/equipment determined by the task you are performing.
