Aircraft Avionics Technician

Aircraft Avionics Technicians service, repair and modify an aircraft's electronic systems and components. They ensure that navigation, communication, radar, and other electronic and computer instruments and controls comply with standard operating procedures.

Today's aircraft can be quite sophisticated with "fly by wire" flight controls, satellite navigation and communication, in-flight entertainment, and automatic flight, as well as communication and monitoring systems. From modern aircraft to legacy aircraft undergoing the installation of modern avionics, the Avionics Technician ensures that all systems are serviceable and fit for flight.
