Dear Mr Bulence

Re: Aircraft maintenance engineer position

I am writing to apply for the position of aircraft maintenance engineer at Skypost Airfreight as advertised recently on

In my current role as aircraft maintenance engineer at Region Air, I am charged with performing a range of both turbine and piston engine aircraft and component maintenance procedures. These include maintenance, modification and repairs to all engine systems and parts.

I am also responsible for issuing CRS certification on all repairs and mods, and the general maintenance of tools and work environment. I have demonstrated knowledge and experience in OH&S and QA procedures & documentation, I am fully qualified, with a Certificate IV in Aeroskills (Mechanical) and a Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering. I possess a B1.1 licence in line with CASA and CASR part 66, and am authorised to work on a wide range of aircraft.

I possess excellent communication skills, both written and verbal. I am also exceptionally organised. At Region Air, maintenance teams must work efficiently, accurately and cooperatively to keep up with tight production schedules. My fellow employees will attest to my capacity as a team player, but I am comfortable and confident working independently on high-responsibility jobs in time-critical environments. That also entails a willingness to work flexible hours whenever required.

Throughout my career, I have been driven to improve the efficiency of work procedures where appropriate. With Region Air and Autoeng, I was a key contributor to the streamlining of operations and task flows, resulting in considerable financial and time savings.

I possess advanced skills in the Microsoft Office Suite, as well as a great deal of experience using design software, including AutoCAD and IronCAD. I also have current membership to the Australian Institution of Engineers as a Chartered Professional Engineer (CPENG). I hold a current driver’s licence and first aid certificate.

My resume is attached and I look forward to being able to discuss the position with you further.

Yours faithfully,
