I work preflight. It's one of the best positions you may ever have in the aviation industry. Great job all around with no complaints. When the vice president and the union chair both meet you with a smile and call you by your first name, it can't be too bad. I highly recommend this place.

I was fortunate enough to get an internship where my job was to engineer repairs for damaged in service aircraft. I was very glad to have the chance to apply all the things on which i have spent years in class.

Every day offered a new situation with its own challenges, and it was very interesting.


I worked with amazing people who were very helpful and taught me countless things that a classroom never would.

When I worked for de Havilland Aircraft, the company was owned by Boeing Aircraft. The Company paid very well, and the benefits were very good. However the Company has since been purchased by Bombardier, I have no knowledge of the management style that is now in place.
Pros
The Company paid very well and had good benefits.
Cons
The Company has since been bought by Bombardier Aerospace

A typical day at work involved design activities associated with a regional transport aircraft. I learned that the company was totally resistant to adopting process improvements that were working well with other companies. The management was fair at best. The workplace culture was mediocre. The hardest part of the job was dealing with peers & management resistant to new employees ideas. The most enjoyable part of the job was experiencing the Canadian culture.
Pros
Adequate pay
Cons
Old world thinking
