15N Avionics Mechanic

Company: Army National Guard
Location: Decatur
Posted on: November 28, 2019

Job Description:

The communications system, navigation, and flight controls are just a few examples of the dozens of electrical systems that help pilots keep aircraft safely in flight. As an Avionics Mechanic in the Army National Guard, you will make sure these systems and instruments operate properly.

Through training and practice, you will learn how to perform maintenance on tactical communications-security, navigation, and flight control equipment. Specific duties may include: performing operational and preventive checks and alignments on aircraft flight controls, stabilization systems, avionics, and controlled cryptographic equipment; troubleshooting equipment using technical manuals and schematic drawings; and inspecting and maintaining electrical systems that include wiring, electrical connections, and the repair and/or replacement of instruments.

Job Duties

• Some of the Skills You'll Learn
• Basic electronics theory

• Ability to multi-task

Earn While You Learn
Instead of paying to learn these skills, get paid to learn. In the Army National Guard, you will learn these valuable job skills while earning a regular paycheck and qualifying for tuition assistance.
