What do you do?
Most recently, I’ve written the sections of our maintenance manuals dealing with the avionics of our aircraft. They explain how we will maintain the equipment and how we comply with federal regulations. I actually perform the actions required by these manuals, review aircraft specification changes and service bulletins, and decide whether or not to implement them. I also provide technical expertise for any questions regarding aircraft avionics configuration.
