Aviation has millions of areas from handyman to pilots. I have tried to state all the areas with some important features from each field .
Key Responsibility Areas in Aviation
1. Handyman - some of the inpartent area in aviation but this is still considered as low profile area. They handle bags in check-in counter to handle wheel-chair in flight .
2. Porters - This is not a real area under any aviation field, this is a private category in airport. You pay them money for helping in your bags.
3. Ramp - this is a very big area in aviation. Normally we see airport and aircraft. But what happens around the aircraft after landing? Who takes care of there chocks to hold aircraft till next take off? Well ramp staffs do that. Right from bay pickup to aircraft porting.
4. Marshalling - This is one of the most serious task on ground. Guiding your aircraft to its bay perfectly is done by them.
5. Load and trim - They help you in balancing aircraft properly. Every aircaft has passenger and cargo items but who measures this weight to balance aircraft . This is done by them and notified to pilots.
6. Engineers - "fit to fly" this is what they do with aircraft.
7. Ground staffs - security to ticketing is handled by them.
8. Cabin crew and pilots
A Handyman performs a range of maintenance duties for homeowners and businesses, either
as a contract worker or member of the maintenance department. Their duties include fixing
plumbing systems, providing repair guidance, cleaning and remodeling community spaces, and
performing repair assessments .
Proven experience as handyman.
Experience with hardware tools and electrical equipment.
Basic understanding of electrical, plumbing or HVAC systems.
Basic math skills.
Good communication ability.
Well-organized and apt in problem-solving.
Attention to detail.
High school diploma or equivalent.
Carrying and labelling guests' luggage with tags.
Sweeping and mopping floors and vacuum carpets.
Ensuring building entrance is free of clutter at all times.
Ramp agents are responsible for loading and unloading aircraft baggage, guiding planes to and from their
gates, operating baggage carts, de-icing planes and performing other airplane servicing duties. You will work either as an airport or airline-specific employee, depending on the airport at which you work.
Aircraft marshalling referst to the visual communication between ground personnel and pilots in order to
lead an aircraft to the correct parking position at an airport or
aerodrome. Marshalling is important because many pilots have limited vision both of the aircraft and of
ground obstacles from the cockpit .
The Aircraft Marshaller guides the movement of an aircraft prior to departure or upon arrival by utilizing a motorized vehicle, electronic communications, standard hand signals, and related actions.
Load and trim
The aircraft load and trim sheet uses correct input data but the output data is wrong
(applicable to manual load sheets) The flight crew apply the (correct) load and trim data
incorrectly when using it to calculate aircraft take-off performance data, including reference
speeds and scheduled thrust settings .
Key skills for aeronautical engineers
Aerospace engineers may develop new technologies for use in aviation, defense systems, and
spacecraft. They often specialize in areas such as aerodynamic fluid flow; structural design;
guidance, navigation, and control; instrumentation and communication; robotics; and
propulsion and combustion.
Strong mathematical, analytical and problem solving skills.
Creativity and innovative thinking.
Attention to detail.
A strong awareness of safety issues.
Communication skills, both verbal and written.
Project and time management skills.
- Ground staff
The major categories of ground handling services are Cabin service, Catering, Ramp
service, Passenger service, Field operation service and so on. Generally,
aircraft ground handling refers to the servicing of an aircraft while it is on the ground and
parked at a terminal gate of an airport .
- Cabin crew
The air cabin crew of a commercial airline share responsibility for the safety and comfort
of its passengers. Duties include: greeting passengers as they board and exit the plane.
showing passengers to their seats and providing special attention to certain passengers,
such as the elderly or disabled .
Pilots are responsible for the operation of the aircraft, the safety of the passengers and crew members, and all flight decisions once in the air. Their primary concern, however, is
the safety of the plane and passengers.
The Pilot's responsibilities include transporting passengers and cargo, determining the safest routes, analyzing flight plans and weather
