Aircraft Mechanic, Interior Shops
“Ever since I was little, I was fascinated by planes and wanted to know how they work. I started working at Hawaiian Airlines in 1989 when I was only 20 years old, and it has been my dream job. As an Aircraft Mechanic, I have learned so much from being on the flight line, doing heavy checks, and in the interior shop. I always tell the new members of our team that this is a company where you can have a great career and become a skilled mechanic.”
Lead Aircraft Mechanic, Base

Due to our company’s rapid growth, there are many new opportunities for advancement — not only in Hawaii but also at our various Continental U.S. stations.”
Lead Aircraft Mechanic
“As a Lead Aircraft Mechanic, I ensure our aircraft departs on time and that our mechanics are up to date on training. Compared to other airlines, I’ve found that Hawaiian Airlines has a unique culture. It taught me to be humble and to learn from others. I have a deep level of trust in all my mechanics. We all depend on each other because we all have different strengths. Working at Hawaiian Airlines allows me to work and grow alongside teammates that have become some of my closest friends. This is my dream job.”
