Meet Yvette Payne – Aircraft Maintenance Engineer
Introducing Yvette who is one of the many awesome mentors in the Program.
Born into an aviation family, Yvette (Vee), didn’t work in Aircraft Maintenance Engineering (AME) until her early 20s.
Vee first enjoyed several other roles including process line operator, logistics and also worked as an explosive ordnance technician; but none sparked her passion like aviation.
After completing full-time study, she took a position as an apprentice AME, working on military helicopters and has never looked back.
“I call the Aviation Industry a “choose your own adventure” type of career, the possibilities are almost endless and the sky isn’t even the limit anymore.”
Vee enjoys working on aircraft and recently moved into a Quality Analyst role. This role utilises her skills and knowledge accumulated throughout her career to help make aviation safer and more efficient.
Even as a mother with a toddler, 18 months old, Vee has found the aviation industry supportive in continuing a career, she feels she is thriving and learning and describes a career in the aviation industry “one of endless opportunities”.
“Never ever let anyone tell you what you are or aren’t capable of.”
