For Jodi Bruce, one of Qantas’ Licensed Aircraft Maintenance Engineers, no day is the same. Whether it’s fixing the inflight entertainment, working on the navigation system or repairing an aircraft’s engine so it can take off again, “Aircraft are so complex and involve thousands of working parts. Some days you’ll come to work and be flown to remote parts of Western Australia to fix an aircraft and bring it back to Perth, and some days you might be in the hangar doing routine servicing.”
When it comes to encouraging more girls and women to consider a career in engineering Jodi says, “Some people think engineering is only for boys because you get dirty or the tools are too heavy – that’s definitely not the case.” She believes it’s important to encourage girls to do what makes them happy and fuels their passion.
