From Aeronautical Engineering to WHERE?
You wounldn't be a consultant yourself (as in, like, self employed), you would work for a consulting/engineering firm. What they work on and in what field(s) is entirely dependent on the consultant. In engineering these guys usually work on what we call EPCM projects, which stand for Engineering, Procurement, Construction Management (from only one to all of those options). There are literally thousands of solely Construction Management firms out there (especially in cities).
Again, what you'd be doing depends entirely on the company. I know people who work on sites overseeing construction (meaning making sure safety codes are followed, building codes, piping codes, fire codes, electrical codes, etc.) and coming up with solutions to problems that arise in the field. I know people who work in an office closely with the design team to come up with system requirements and layouts. And I know people who work on teams doing theoretical studies / experiments all day to try to find improvements to the various processes in the industry.

Here's some advice from someone who has been down this path. APPLY FOR EVERYTHING you can find, there's no space to be picky. You will spend so much time applying and being rejected from stuff that you won't care which type of job you do. You'll be happy you have one. Trust me. It's a tough field. I have a degree in mech/space/aero and ended up in the construction field...
