Chief Engineer

Jay Allen is our CASA approved Chief Engineer and team leader. As Chief Engineer, Jay is both solutions oriented and compliance focused. As an aircraft owner himself, Jay is well aware of the cost drivers that underpin both corporate and personal ownership. That perspective translates to his desire to find practical, cost effective solutions that support ownership and enhance safety.

Engineering Team

Our expanding LAME and AME team are critical to our success. We have the support of expert sheet metal workers, airframe and engine licence holders and a network of support personnel who are both experienced and enthusiastic about what they do. We welcome the opportunity to introduce our hard working engineering team to you the next time you visit the airfield.

Safety First, Safety Always

Our Safety Culture

Safety is of paramount importance at Flight Maintenance Australia. We take pride in our safety culture – a way of working that reflects respect for ourselves, our colleagues, clients and indeed a healthy reverence for the aerospace in which we work.

The Australian Standards guide defines safety as “a state in which the risk of harm (to persons) or damage is limited to an acceptable level”. Our desire is to remove as many of the risks as possible through sound safety management practices and proactive thought leadership by our team at all levels of the organisation. Our values include a sense of care for each person who travels in an aircraft maintained in our shop, and our team maintains competency training to look after each client like they were our own family.

We also seek regular feedback from our students and clients in the interests of awareness and enhanced reach. We invite confidential notification of hazards and incidents via our email address, via the reporting tool below, or in person to the Chief Executive Officer at our Archerfield office. We’d rather you report it promptly than risk the alternative.

Report a Hazard
