Summary

The duties of a mechanical engineer are similar to those of an avionics engineer. However, they specialize in aircraft mechanics and check all the components that are directly related to the safety. Before the flight, they carry out inspection to check whether the brakes, hydraulic system, instruments, navigation and tyres are functioning properly. By using the tools, they repair and replace the defective parts. After getting all the mechanical work done, they document it in the sheet and share it with the supervisor. A mechanical engineer produces designs after an extensive research and then adopts measures for implementation. They also offer technical assistance to the mechanics and act in close coordination with the suppliers on the quality of aircraft components.
