As an Aircrew Flight Equipment specialist, there are things you do that help aircrews and pilots get off the ground every day. There are also things you do that you hope no one will ever need. You'll be in charge of ensuring all flight equipment is in perfect working order — from flight helmets to oxygen masks. You'll also be responsible for ensuring all emergency safety equipment like parachutes and survival kits are ready to go should they be needed. If an aircrew needs to make use of emergency equipment, it could mean the difference between life and death, so your work had better be perfect.
