About the role

S&S Techs have one of the most varied roles in the Defence Force. The name Safety and Surface has proud historical roots reaching back to its origins with the Royal Air Force of Great Britain.

However these days, Safety and Surface is essentially the banner for three aeronautical engineering specialisations carried out within our Air Force.

  • Aerial Delivery Equipment : This includes parachute rigging (repair and maintenance) for all personnel and cargo parachute systems.
  • This is essential work to allow insertion of specialist operators, equipment and supplies into operational theatres, or to provide humanitarian aid and disaster relief.

  • Aeronautical Finishing : This includes removal and application of surface finishes as well as associated repair and manufacture of aeronautical fabric and upholstery components.
  • This is necessary to protect our aircraft from the variety of environments we operate in and keep them looking great.

  • Aeronautical Life Support Equipment : This includes maintenance of aircrew helmets, oxygen and smoke masks, life preservers, flying clothing, immersion suits, life rafts, and helicopter emergency floatation systems.
  • This is required to enable aircrew to carry out flying operations and keep our aircrew safe.

    The work of S&S Techs requires exceptional care and attention to detail. Some of your work is on display every day, and the work hidden out of sight needs to be to the highest standard in order to save lives.
