31, Air­craft En­gi­neer Tell us a bit about what you do. I ’m with AirAsia , and I’ m re­spon­si­ble for main­tain­ing and re­leas­ing air crafts back into ser­vice in an air wor­thy con­di­tion. If I say the air­craft can’t fly, the air­craft won’t fly. Why air­craft en­gi­neer­ing? I was look­ing for op­tions when I fin­ished my Di­ploma in Aero­nau­tics and this caught my in­ter­est. I gen­er­ally don’t like be­ing tied to a desk any way. How did you over­come any gen­der- re­lated road­blocks? By be­ing a per­sis­tent fire cracker! I made it a point to work smart and equipped my­self with ev­ery­thing I needed to prove them wrong. What are the big­gest chal­lenges for women in your in­dus­try? This job just needs more ex­po­sure. Most peo­ple still would only think of pi­lot sand cabin crews, when they think of jobs in avi­a­tion. What makes a suc­cess­ful leader? Ver­sa­til­ity, pas­sion and com­pas­sion.
