Working Conditions:

Mechanics usually work in hangars or in other indoor/outdoor areas. When hangars are full or when repairs must be made quickly, they can work outdoors, sometimes in unpleasant weather. Mechanics often work under time pressure to maintain flight schedules or, in general aviation, to keep from inconveniencing customers. At the same time, mechanics have a tremendous responsibility to maintain safety standards, and this can cause the job to be stressful. Noise and vibration are common when engines are being tested, so ear protection is necessary. Aircraft inspectors usually work 40 hours a week on 8-hour shifts around the clock. Overtime work is frequent.
