As an aircraft technician, you are responsible for maintaining and repairing parts of the aircraft fuselage, engine, weapons or electronics. You will work with highly-technological systems and follow the plane wherever it goes to perform unexpected maintenance.

As an aeroplane or helicopter pilot, you provide combat support to ground troops, protect the airspace and/or transport troops and cargo. You can also embark on a navy frigate or perform rescue missions above the Sea. Recently, the option to fly an unmanned aircraft has been added to the list as well. 


As a meteorologist, you study the atmosphere. You predict the weather and study the causes of certain weather conditions. Your weather forecasts are crucial because no pilot boards a plane or helicopter without a full weather report.
