Female Ground Crews Rule Airport Tarmac
Paris
By Steven Wassenaar
26 Mar 2014

34 year-old Nesrine Chkioua is a technical inspector for the DGCA (Directorate General of Civil Aviation) in France. She is one of the only three female technical inspectors in France – and the only female technical controller at the airport of Roissy-Charles de Gaulle - who can prevent an aircraft from taking off and force its passengers to exit the plane if she detects a security breach. She inspects about two aircrafts per day. When she shows up on the tarmac, station managers, pilots, and mechanics hold their breath.

Every minute of delay can cost up to 1,500 Euros to the company. But Nesrine pays no attention to the cost as she does her work: the plane must be in good standing. In 2012, 2,442 flights of foreign airline companies have been inspected. 673 of them were delayed before taking off because of security problems. Three planes needed so much maintenance that they were forbidden from taking off.

In this photo essay, we follow Nesrine and her colleague as they inspect a plane going to Lebanon. Our photographer also interviewed her about how she feel about her job and responsibilities. Technical inspectors’ working conditions are difficult, as they have to endure constant heavy noise and cold.
