Aircraft Engineers are key workers in the aviation industry, researching, designing, engineering, and maintaining safe aircraft. There are a number of risks associated with aircraft engineering. Aircraft engineers face the possibility of injury from malfunctioning equipment, fallen parts, falling from a height (working on scaffolding), and muscle strain or chemical burns. As a result of these risks, Aircraft Engineer is considered a relatively high-risk occupation. Aircraft engineers can receive Class 3 income insurance, which protects income up until age 65 (unless stated otherwise).
