As a Naval Airman (Aircraft Handler), you’re responsible for safety whenever there’s aircraft on the deck or the ground. That means working with flight crews at Royal Naval Air Stations (RNAS), on our state-of-the-art warships, or even the new Queen Elizabeth Aircraft Carrier. It’s a physical job where you’ll work outside in all conditions, but by making sure that our jets and helicopters are in the right place at the right time, you’ll be playing a key role in providing Royal Navy’s airborne capability.
- Your core responsibility is to ensure our aircraft are in the right place and ready for action when we need them.
- During training you’ll develop the skills you need to fight fuel, hangar and aircraft fires. That means in the event of an emergency, everyone will look to you for guidance.
- On a ship, you’ll operate the lift that brings the aircraft out of the hangar before securing them to the flight deck.
- Sometimes you’ll be up against challenging weather conditions, so it’s an element of your role that requires real skill, judgement and perseverance.
