Hello, This may sound like a silly question, but could someone explain to me what airline engineers do? As in, if you're say a mechanical engineer employed by an airline, what do you do? Are you stuck at a desk all day, do you spend time in the hangers with the mechanics? I'm a junior ME and obviously have a huge interest in the field, but I am unsure of what engineers employed by airlines do. Is anyone here a mechanic or engineer at IAD or ATL? Any help will be apprecited. I didn't find the right solution from the Internet. References: http://www.airliners.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=751283 Animated video agency Thank you.
