By now, you’ve probably seen the news about JetBlue’s decision to replace its maintenance mechanic, Frank Starling, with a full-time maintenance technician.
While Starling was no longer employed by the airline, he remains an employee of JetBlue, and his salary will go up.
While we know the number of maintenance technicians on JetBlue is small, there is still a need for a full time worker who will do maintenance and repair on planes and the ground.
We know the company is still looking for someone who can handle the additional workload of having a full service mechanic, but what if the company was looking for a more experienced maintenance mechanic?
Starling’s departure comes just a month after a large-scale maintenance issue involving the engine of the 747X jetliner caused the plane to stop flying and to go down in flames.
Starlings death was a very unfortunate incident, but it’s still one that will surely inspire people to ask themselves the question “What would it be like to fly a 747?”
In this article, we’ll take a look at what a full maintenance mechanic would look like on a jetliner.
What does a full mechanic do?
Full-time flight attendants have two major responsibilities, and the two of them go hand in hand.
First, they clean the engines and wings of the planes.
Second, they do the maintenance of the aircraft.
While this might seem like a simple task for most, it takes a full, dedicated maintenance mechanic to be able to do it.
As a maintenance technician, maintenance technicians spend time at their desks cleaning, adjusting, and maintaining the aircraft, and they have to make sure that everything is running smoothly.
This is a very important job for a maintenance mechanic.
It requires a certain level of knowledge of how airplanes work, and that knowledge has to be well-rounded.
How does a maintenance manager earn a maintenance paycheck?
As we mentioned in our article about the JetBlue mechanic’s salary, maintenance managers work a 12-hour shift, with their regular hours being about 8 to 10 hours per week.
They are also required to make a $25,000 monthly salary.
That’s not enough money to keep the maintenance team afloat, but they are still able to live a comfortable life, and their families live well enough that they can keep a roof over their heads.
When a maintenance supervisor is hired, he or she must be at least 18 years old.
The typical maintenance manager’s salary varies depending on the type of aircraft and type of maintenance they are responsible for.
The average maintenance technician’s pay range from $12,500 to $18,000.
