Licensed Aircraft Maintenance Engineer (Uganda, Papua New Guinea)

Mission Aviation Fellowship

Our aircraft land on some of the most challenging terrain you can imagine. Safety is?key so the skill set?that an engineer brings to our aircraft is essential.?We operate mainly Single Engine Turbine and Single Engine Piston aircraft.?

If you are interested in combining your engineering skills with the opportunity for mission this could be the job for you.

Andy one of our engineers writes;

In the hangar, our typical days usually involve inspections. Much of our work is preventative so by carrying out inspections every 50 or 100 operational hours, we are able to catch most things before they become problems. Since our Uganda programme is quite big, we?re also able to take on some bigger projects too, that might involve delving into parts of an aircraft not normally opened, to replace entire avionics systems with new digital ?glass cockpit? packages, or stripping all of the paint off an aircraft to carry out structural repairs then repaint in our new colour scheme.
