As the name suggests, the main role of an Aviation Inspector is to inspect aircraft, maintenance procedures, air navigational aids, air traffic controls, and communications equipment to ensure conformance with safety regulations.
The daily activities of an Aviation Inspector include the inspection of equipment, structures or materials to identify the cause of error or other problems or defects. An inspector must also monitor and review information relating to events and the environment to detect or assess potential problems. Finally, an inspector is responsible for evaluating information to determine whether events or processes comply with laws, regulations, or standards.
A prospective Inspector must be experienced in technical supervision or management of the maintenance and repair of aircraft, aircraft engines, or aircraft electronics communication and navigation systems and equipment of aircraft with responsibility for airworthiness following aviation or military regulations and safety standards. This experience must demonstrate a broad and comprehensive knowledge of maintenance of aircraft or aircraft systems. It must also demonstrate an ability to gain cooperation at management levels in complying with and supporting proper maintenance standards. Experience gained as a field service representative of a manufacturer of aircraft systems and equipment may be accepted up to a maximum of one year. A Bachelor of Applied Science (Civil Aviation) would also be an advantage.
