Fuel is the lifeblood of all aircraft, and as a Fuels Specialist, it's your responsibility to make sure our helicopters and planes always have their fill. The work of a Fuels Specialist doesn't solely focus on fueling, though. Your responsibilities will include receiving, storing and tracking all petroleum products for use in Air Force vehicles and aircraft. Of course, standing on the flight line pumping thousands of gallons of jet fuel into an F-16 about to head out on a mission could be the most important part of your job.
