Adopting The The Air Force Technical Division!

Who are you the The Air Force Technical Division?

Something Big

"The squadron’s technical department is responsible for the aircraft's maintenance for each and every sortie at any given time", said Maj. Itzik Dahan, the technical officer at the "First Jet" Squadron at Ramat-David AFB, which operates "Barak" (F-16B/C) aircraft. "Each aircraft is our responsibility, and no sorties are possible without the technical department’s preliminary preparations. The technicians arm the aircraft and ensure the propriety of its systems, with the pre-sortie preparations taking up two hours at a time. The aircraft are located in the HAS (Hardened Aircraft Shelter), which is where we're situated during routine. When on ready-alert, some technicians sleep in their uniforms so they can be prepared for action as soon as they're alerted. Ramat-David is the IAF's northernmost airbase, which means that we are trusted with security of the northern theatre. We maintain a high alert state in order to prepare the aircraft for the next sortie as quickly as possible".

What do you do?

Before every takeoff and after every landing, IAF technicians work on the aircraft and prepare it for the next sortie, taking care of every little detail in order to ensure the aircrew members' safety. They are a part of the Technical Division, which spreads across every squadron in the IAF, and are responsible for routine maintenance of the squadrons' aircraft. Alongside the aircrew members, they comprise the squadron's operational routine.
