1.Aircraft Maintenance Technician.
Aircraft Maintenance Technicians (AMT's) keep aircraft of various sizes and types in excellent working order. They complete inspections, perform scheduled maintenance, make any necessary repairs, and alteration of aircraft and aircraft systems. In the US, aircraft maintenance technicians usually refer to themselves as A&Ps, for airframe and powerplant mechanics.
Airline and commercial pilots fly and navigate airplanes or helicopters. Airline pilots fly for airlines that transport people and cargo on a fixed schedule. Commercial pilots fly aircraft for other reasons, such as charter flights, rescue operations, firefighting, aerial photography, and crop dusting.
