Our helpful platform offers amazing opportunities suitable for every profile. From flight attendant and aviation security officer careers to pilot and aerospace engineering jobs, in Apply4U you can rest assured that you can find a great variety of roles in order for you to land your dream job and get one step closer in becoming an expert in this industry. Read on to see the facts and figures you need to know about the career field of Aerospace and Aviation.   

Did you know that starting salaries for aerospace engineering jobs,  range from £22,000 to £28,000? However, with experience, this can rise between £28,000 and £40,000, depending on the level of your expertise. At a  senior level, particularly if you gained a  chartered status, you can expect a salary of £45,000 to £60,000. 

Aerospace jobs include a number of different roles and responsibilities as well as various vacancies such as aeronautical engineering jobsaerospace program manager jobsaerospace project manager jobsaerospace-quality manager jobsaerospace marshall jobs as well as aircraft engineer jobs.

For example, as an astronautical engineer, such responsibilities involve working with the science and technology of a spacecraft, finding ways on how to perform inside and outside the Earth's atmosphere. This includes work on small satellites such as CubeSats and traditional large satellites.  

Furthermore, working within an aerospace engineering career includes designing or building an aircraft, missiles, systems for national defence, or spacecraft. You will be working primarily for firms that engage in manufacturing, analysis,  design, research, development, and the federal government. 

Moreover, aerospace engineering employers,  now spend more of their time in an office environment than they have in the past because modern aircraft design requires the use of sophisticated computer equipment and software design tools, modelling, and simulations for tests, evaluation, and training. 

Additionally, Aerospace engineers typically work full time. This is because you will have to work extra hours to monitor progress, to ensure that designs meet requirements, to determine how to measure aircraft performance, to see that production meets design standards, to participate in test flights and first flights, and to ensure that deadlines are met.

Entry-level aerospace engineers usually need a bachelor's degree. However, Aerospace engineering graduate jobs involve a graduate degree, which will allow you to work as an instructor at a university or to do research and development. 

Aerospace graduate jobs include opportunities such as Production InternshipMechanical systems engineering, Research, and Technology business development, Threat evaluation engineers, physicists, and embedded software analyst, Air engineer officer, Graduate civil engineer and so much more.  


What do air traffic controllers and pilots have in common? 

If a pilot screws up, the pilot dies.  If ATC screws up, the pilot dies.
