3819 — Airframe Jig Fitting

This occupation includes jobs involved in assembling, fitting, and aligning airframe jigs used in the reworking of aircraft control surfaces, wings, and fuselage sections. The work requires the ability to visualize the configuration of the jig from multiple, cross-referenced engineering prints and to determine the tolerance with which the jig must conform; skill in using optical alignment equipment to measure and spot distances and angles so that reference points can be physically located, mechanically adjusted, and set on the jig framework within close tolerances; and knowledge of solid geometry, trigonometry, and algebra to compute reference locations.
