Navy Engineering Challenge - Aviation Challenge


Navy Engineering Challenge - Aviation Challenge (1.52 mins)

"The Navy Engineering Challenge", kicked off in 2013. The aim of this competition is to promote teamwork, skill-of-hand and job planning skills amongst our technical Sailors. The overall challenge competition has been developed with input from the technical community and consists of three sub-elements, each relating to a technical competency domain. These domains are: Marine; Electronics; and Aviation. The National Finals are held at HMAS Cerberus in December following regional competitions throughout the year. The winners receive a Champion Technician medallion, a prize consisting of tools of trade to the value of $5,000 each and will be entitled to wear the Champion Technician cuff-rate. The Aviation Challenge involves conducting mechanical and electrical repairs on a sample of a simulated aircraft structure and associated systems. Scoring is based on a combination of adherence and repair techniques, including intolerances outlined in supplied structural repair instructions. Quality of both the adherence to the supplied instructions and documentation of all repair work conducted will also be assessed. Additional to this, documented planning of repair techniques, manpower utilisation and WHS considerations will be assessed.
