Abstract : The Jet Engine Mechanic and Turboprop Propulsion Mechanic career ladders were surveyed to obtain current data for use in training management decisions. A combined job inventory was administered worldwide between November 1980 and March 1981. The 3,610 respondents comprising the final survey sample included 2,615 members holding DAFSC 426X2 (82 percent of the eligible assigned personnel), 848 airmen reporting DAFSC 426X3 (74 percent of the eligible assigned personnel) and 138 DAFSC42699 Personnel(88 percent of the Eiligible assigned Personnel). Both career ladders, as well as all major commands, were well represented in the survey sample. There were five job clusters and 13 independent job types identified in the analysis which were broadly grouped into six general functional areas: (1)Flightline Maintenance (with distinct groupings of 426X2 and 426X3 personnel); (2) Test Cell (including both 426X2 and 426X3 personnel); (3) General Shop Maintenance (with distinct engine and propeller groups); (4) Management Staff (both AFSCs represented); (5) Specialized Shop Maintenance (predominantly 426X2 personnel); and (6) Supply, Administrative, and Training (including 426X2 and 426X3 members).
