A&p mECHANICS WANTED

Our planes fly over hundreds of miles of open ocean to reach the remote islands.  For this reason we depend heavily on well maintained aircraft.  Much of our work week is spent on aircraft maintenance to keep our planes running well, and at a high level of safety.  If you are an aircraft mechanic with a heart to serve, we would love to have you join our team.

INTERNSHIP OPPORTUNITY

In an effort to help young pilots fresh out of school to build flight time, we have an opportunity for them to serve as an intern at our base in Palau.  At this base they can fly scenic aerial tours in single engine Cessna 206’s to build time and experience.  We also have many humanitarian flights that they can be involved in to get a feel for mission flying.  We hope that after the internship that pilots will have a desire to fly long term with PMA.  Then we can upgrade them to our twin engine aircraft and they can serve in Yap or Palau.

FAA CERTIFIED PART 135

IMPORTANCE OF FAA CERTIFICATION

Having the oversight of the FAA for our operation greatly increases our level of safety.  Each year we get a visit from two FAA inspectors.  One for our flight checks and one for our maintenance checks.  Our pilots have to go through a training program each year to meet the requirements laid out in our FAA Approved Training Manual.  

When the flight inspector comes, he sits down with our pilots to examine their knowledge of the regulations, the aircraft systems, the flight operation and weather.  Then he goes up for an hour flight with the pilot to test his ability to maneuver the aircraft under normal and emergency situations.

When the maintenance inspector comes, he looks at our planes, reviews our maintenance records, makes sure our tools are properly calibrated and that our spare parts are all certified with approved paperwork.

PMA has been blessed with a good reputation with the FAA.  We strive hard to meet and exceed their expectations.  Their oversight has produced a high level of safety for our operation.
