Becoming an Aircraft Structures Mechanic at The Boeing Company is an exciting opportunity to assemble the critical structural components and sub-assemblies to complete final assembly of a composite/metal aircraft.
As an Aircraft Structures Mechanic you will work within a final assembly/fabrication environment by drawing on knowledge acquired from training and certification classes to complete your daily assigned work. By interpreting drawings and reading/comprehending work instructions you will be responsible for identifying your work (task) location on the airplane/part/tooling and identifying all required hand tools, parts and equipment to accomplish defect-free work.
For an Aircraft Structures Mechanic, daily assigned work could include: Within the Final Assembly and Fabrication environment:
· Use a computer in a production environment.
· Look up/read/comprehend technical work instructions, drawings and/or specifications.
· Assemble and install to structural components and sub-assemblies to join larger assemblies. Components may be metal or composites or a combination.
· Use locating points found by utilizing station lines and index points and without jigs, fixtures or tooling, as required.
Depending on your work environment and assigned work the following tools and materials might be used:
1. Appropriate protective clothing/equipment determined by the task you are performing.
