As an Aircraft Fabricator maintain and repair advanced military aircraft, while enjoying:

  • a good salary plus generous superannuation
  • ongoing investment in your personal and career development

All that plus meaningful experiences such as joining peacekeeping missions and supporting communities in need.

Your role

It takes a talented and resourceful team of technicians to maintain the structural integrity of some of the world's most advanced aircraft.

When you join this team as an Aircraft Fabricator you'll specialise in the primary and secondary structure of each aircraft, working with high-performance materials such as carbon fibre, aluminium alloy, high-strength steel and titanium.

In addition to maintaining wings, flaps and fuselages, you'll also service and repair a wide variety of components and systems.

The types of aircraft you could work on range from the F/A-18 Hornet multi-role fighter to the mighty C-17A Globemaster III mass transporter. You'll be trained to carry out tasks such as:

  • flight line handling and replenishment
  • removal and installation of structural components
  • disassembly and reassembly of aircraft components
  • manufacture and repair of aircraft plumbing and ducting
  • heat treatment and welding of aircraft aluminium and ferrous alloys
  • routine maintenance of tools and machinery used on aircraft
  • preparation and use of aircraft support equipment
  • identification and demand of aircraft technical equipment and spares
  • preparation and packaging of technical equipment for transportation, and
  • amendment and maintenance of technical publications.

In the Air Force no two days will ever be the same and your well-equipped ‘workshop’ could be in one of many locations across Australia, and even overseas.

If you want to learn a good trade, gain nationally-recognised qualifications, and work with leading-edge aircraft, this could be the job for you. Better still, you’ll be working for a dynamic organisation that offers a great lifestyle plus opportunities you simply won’t find anywhere else.
