  • Ability to follow strict operational procedures at all times
  • Alongside Inspection Engineers, deliver safety-critical inspections within set time frames whilst always maintaining safety of the team and aircraft
  • Prepare Risk Assessments, Method Statements and detailed Flight Plans    
  • Assisting in the maintenance and preparation of UAS
