A Mechanic is a person who has completed FAA-approved training and has been licensed to perform maintenance on aircraft. Their training allows them to perform general maintenance that includes repair of the engine, replace components, wiring of the aircraft and repairs to the structure. They have to have further training for more technical maintenance and computer trouble-shooting. A mechanic does everything that is needed to keep the aircraft in airworthy condition. Aircraft have checks and maintenance that is performed every day and very regularly. Then there is maintenance that is required at longer intervals. These "checks" are very detailed and require a long time to accomplish. For passenger airliners, a major check will require the aircraft to be out of service for 4 to 8 weeks as much of the aircraft is disassembled to obtain access to internal parts and components. Some tasks include X-raying parts of the wing to look for cracks. So any regular maintenance or repair that is accomplished on an aircraft can only be done by a certified aircraft mechanic.
