Aviation Electrician's Mate (abbreviated as AE) is a United States Navy occupational rating.

Aviation Electrician's Mates maintain electrical and instrument systems, including power generation, conversion, and distribution systems; aircraft batteries; interior and exterior lighting; electrical control of aircraft systems, including hydraulic, landing gear, flight control, utility, and power plant engine, flight and non-instrument-type indicating and warning systems; automatic flight control and stabilization systems; aircraft compass systems; attitude reference systems; and inertial navigation systems. The primary "A" School training for AE's is located at Naval Aviation Technical Training Center aboard NAS Pensacola.

Secondary "C" Schools are located at various locations nationwide with the most common being NAS Lemoore, CA and NAS Oceana, VA.[1]
