Northrop Grumman is seeking an Aircraft Mechanic for our Dulles, VA facilities. This position will serve in a dual-faceted capacity - both as an Aircraft Technician 4 and Flight Engineer/Flight Attendant aboard our Gulfstream aircraft.
The Aircraft Technician 4 performs diagnosis of system malfunctions, makes repairs and services jet aircraft and engine systems in accordance with manufacturer's technical specifications, drawings, schematics, engineering instructions, and Federal Aviation Administration regulations in our corporate flight department based at Dulles Int'l Airport.
