Naval Airman Aircraft Handler Jobs Vacancy at Royal Navy Jobs Details:
As a Naval Airman (Aircraft Handler), you’re responsible for safety whenever there’s aircraft on the deck or the ground. That means working with flight crews at Royal Naval Air Stations (RNAS), on our state-of-the-art warships, or even the new Queen Elizabeth Aircraft Carrier. It’s a physical job where you’ll work outside in all conditions, but by making sure that our jets and helicopters are in the right place at the right time, you’ll be playing a key role in providing Royal Navy’s airborne capability.
Naval Airman Aircraft Handler, Aviation branch
I get to work with some of the most cutting-edge aircraft in existence, and without me they can’t fly. It’s a lot of responsibility, but it’s so satisfying too.

Your core responsibility is to ensure our aircraft are in the right place and ready for action when we need them.
On a ship, you’ll operate the lift that brings the aircraft out of the hangar before securing them to the flight deck. Sometimes you’ll be up against challenging weather conditions, so it’s an element of your role that requires real skill, judgement and perseverance.
During training you’ll develop the skills you need to fight fuel, hangar and aircraft fires. That means in the event of an emergency, everyone will look to you for guidance.
You’ll need to use all of your powers of concentration, every day. As you manoeuvre aircraft in to place, lives may be at stake. Any driving experience you have will be put to use as you form part of the team that keeps our aircraft flight ready.
