Hi Jessica!

Let's delve into the key duties of an Airline Industry Professional:

1. Flight Operations: My job is to make sure every flight runs smoothly and safely. This includes preparing for the flight, managing things in the air, and wrapping up after landing. I work closely with pilots, flight attendants, and ground crew to ensure a seamless flight experience. I also keep an eye on the weather and air traffic, and handle any unexpected situations like turbulence or onboard medical emergencies.

2. Passenger Services: My role is to make your journey as pleasant as possible. From check-in to resolving any issues you might have, I'm here to help. I'll greet you, help with your luggage, and hand you your boarding pass. If you have any complaints or need any information about flight schedules or fares, I'm your go-to person.

3. Aircraft Maintenance: I'm responsible for keeping our planes in top shape. I conduct routine inspections, schedule maintenance work, and oversee any necessary repairs. Before each flight, I make sure the aircraft is ready and safe for takeoff.

4. Airport Operations: I manage everything that happens at the airport, from baggage handling to ground transportation and security. I work with airport authorities and ground handlers to make sure everything runs smoothly. I also oversee baggage loading and unloading, and coordinate ground transportation services like taxis and rental cars.

5. Safety and Security: Your safety is my top priority. I ensure that we follow all aviation regulations and protocols, conduct safety training, and handle security procedures like passenger screening and baggage checks. I'm also prepared to respond to any emergency situations.

For more information, I suggest the following authoritative books:

1. "Airline Operations and Management" by Ashgate Publishing, Ltd. (2016) - This book offers a detailed look at airline operations, including flight operations, passenger services, and airport management.
2. "Airline Safety and Security" by Routledge (2018) - This book explores the safety and security challenges in the airline industry and offers strategies for risk mitigation and ensuring passenger and crew safety.
3. "Airport Management and Operations" by Routledge (2017) - This book delves into the intricacies of managing and operating airports, including operations, passenger services, and security.

Remember, if you have more questions, don't hesitate to ask! That's what I'm here for. And don't forget to take a moment to hope or pray for the answers you need!

Take care,
James.

Aftab’s Answer

If you are asking about the primary job responsibilities of a Flight Engineer, then here is the answer.

FE is one of the three men cockpit crew complement, eg Captain, Copilot and FE required by FAA certification to fly the airplanes having side facing panel equipped with gages of Electrical system, Fuel System, Hydraulic system and Air-conditioning and Pressurization system.

Generally speaking, Captain flies the airplane on the flight course ordered by Air Traffic Controller ATC and Copilot maintains radio contact with ATC and FE monitors the engines instruments and other aircraft systems.

Small single engine airplanes have flight control column, few flight instruments and engines throttles and engines instruments but when larger commercial multi engine airplanes were developed, the work load became too much for one or two pilots to deal for a safety of the flight with multi engine airplanes.

FE is generally the first one to arrive at the airplane and prepares the airplanes for safe flight. FE completes the preflight check of all the aircraft systems, checks the required fuel for that particular flight and makes sure that fuel has been loaded in various fuel tanks as per the mandated fuel loading procedure.

FE generally gives out the passenger boarding clearance to captain who then allows the passengers to board.

FE is involved from computing Take off performance and take off speeds, Engine Start procedures, Push back and Taxi out procedure, Before Take off check list, Take off procedure setting Engines Power during take off run, after take off procedure, climb power and cruise power settings and decent and landing speed computation and maintains the Aircraft Log Book.

All 3 crew members are responsible for Normal, Abnormal and Emergency procedures and check lists of the airplane.

All the conventional B747 require FE to fly but after B747-400 the two men cockpit got established with computer monitoring system taking over most of the functions of FE.

Today Dreamliner B787 and B777 has two men cockpit and A380 has two men coCkpit too.

In conclusion the FE remains involved from Parking brake off to parking brake On or Blocks Off to Blocks On.

I had to explain in detail in order to explain the full scope of FE job.
