AP Mechanic - Pistons and PT6s

Gem Air, LLC
Job Type: 

Our base is in Salmon, Idaho. If you like the idea of living in a small mountain town that offers a lot of outdoor activities and a lot of distance between you and any bigger town or city, this might be the one!

  • Perform scheduled and unscheduled maintenance on aircraft while following both FAA and company requirements and standards.
  • Comply with 14 CFR (as applicable), manufacturerrsquo;s specifications, company policies and procedures, as well as other methods accepted by the FAA, when accomplishing maintenance
