Opportunities for aircraft mechanics

During aircraft assembly typical tasks of an ARTS aircraft mechanic include the assembly of structural components and subassemblies, and the manufacture of rivet joints for the fuselage. Part of the MRO works are the maintenance of fuel, pneumatic and hydraulic systems as well as the repair of water hydraulics and waste systems. Additionally our aircraft mechanics take over assembly work in the aircraft cabin. Finally, in the field of engine technology our colleagues at ARTS oversee upkeep and maintenance for a variety of aircraft.

Whether CAT-A or CAT-B, it is essential to constantly verify the operability of parts and components in order to guarantee that the given quality standards are met. At ARTS, aircraft mechanics perform these duties as validators, also known as certified staff.
