Drone Repair Technicians

Overview

Drone repair technicians use their knowledge of electronics, machinery, and engineering to repair drones. Drones are usually synced with smartphones, so drone repair technicians are also knowledgeable about repairing wireless devices and systems. Drone repair technicians use various tools and techniques to fix drone issues such as broken outer shells, damaged propellers, and overheated motors. They also fix electronic controls and main boards. The Department of Labor does not provide data on drone repair technicians, but has information on aircraft and avionics equipment mechanics and technicians, which have some similar responsibilities to those of drone technicians. According to the DOL, in May 2016, there were nearly 150,000 aircraft and avionics equipment mechanics and technicians employed in the United States.
