- supervising the assembly of airframes and the installation of engines, instruments and other equipment;
- participating in flight test programmes to measure take-off distances, rate of climb, stall speeds, and landing capacities;
- resolving issues that arise during the design, development and testing processes;
- maintaining aircraft for full operation including making regular inspections, maintenance and servicing;


- measuring and improving the performance of aircraft, components and systems;
- modifying designs to improve safety features or minimize fuel consumption and pollution;
- developing repair procedures as well as working out and managing schedules for repair and maintenance;
