Dallas Tech Jobs in Avionics

Avionics technicians are responsible for repairing and maintaining the many systems that control flight, engine, and other primary functions. They may work on aircraft navigation, radio communications, weather radar systems, and other instruments and computers.

Most employees who work on aircraft learn what they need to know by attending an Aviation Maintenance Technician School certified by the Federal Aviation Administration, although some can learn skills through on-the-job training. Anyone who works on civilian aircraft also must become certified by the FAA
