Ground Support Equipment Mechanics will perform the following duties:
- Inspects, tests, and operates equipment to determine serviceability and proper functions
- Removes, disassembles, repairs, cleans, treats for corrosion and assembles
- Performs precision alignments and other precision measuring devices, and reinstalls equipment accessories and components
- Stencils and marks equipment
- Services equipment with grease, oil, hydraulic fluid, pressurized gases, etc. as required
- Diagnose malfunctions and perform common repairs on assigned equipment
- Diagnose mechanical, pneudraulic and electronic circuitry malfunctions using, but not limited to visual and auditory senses, and test equipment before assigning repair action
- Inspect and approves completed maintenance actions
- Prepares equipment for storage, shipment, and transport
- Solves repair problems by studying drawings, wiring diagrams, schematics, and technical publications
Our Ground Support Equipment Mechanics will utilize Government provided tools for this effort. Our Ground Support Equipment Mechanics will utilize automated maintenance systems (i.e. Facility and Equipment Management System (FEMS)) and hard copy records (i.e. AFTO Form 244) to monitor maintenance trends, analyze equipment requirements, maintain equipment records, and document maintenance actions. We will analyze an repair ground support equipment using conventional and digital multi‐meters, common hand tools, tensiometers, floor and bench‐mounted
drills/mills/grinders/machine press brakes, and specialized test sets and perform serviceability checks.
STi will perform corrosion treatment IAW applicable Technical Order, service manual, and manufacturer’s instruction. If technical guidance does not exist, STi shall work with appropriate Government personnel (i.e. engineers) to determine the appropriate corrosion treatment method. STi will prioritize the maintenance and inspection on the Aircraft Jig I & II (AJI and AJII) to ensure prompt support.
STi's Ground Support Equipment Mechanics must have knowledge of: principles of electricity, electronics, general mechanics, pneumatics, hydraulics, material properties, and causes/types of corrosion; troubleshooting, inspecting, repairing, and modifying equipment; use of automated maintenance systems; application of maintenance management techniques; interpretation of maintenance directives, technical publications, drawings, wiring diagrams and schematics; and proper identification, handling, use and disposal of hazardous waste materials.
Work will be performed at 575 AMXS at Joint-Base San Antonio-Randolph AFB, Texas
