Finnish syllables/stressing

Alright, so one of my Finnish friends has challenged me to learn the longest compound word in Finnish:


it translates into "plane Gas turbine motor junior mechanic Non-commissioned officer in training." :D

I think I know how to pronounce PARTS of it based on how to pronounce the letters, but I don't know where to split it up for syllables and which syllables should be stressed. Help? Kiitos paljon in advance!!

ETA: Thank you for the comments. I just remembered I had this really cool site that (rather accurately) says Finnish words FOR you. so I copied it into the box and learned how to say it!

here's the site if anyone's interested: MikropuheLive. It's really useful!!
