It is an exciting time to be part of the aviation industry. The industry offers a wide range of career paths across many backgrounds, skills and experiences. Individuals looking for a job that offers training, upward mobility and interaction with advanced technology should consider employment in aviation. 

Opportunities abound

Demand and opportunity for a career in aviation has never been greater. People with backgrounds in mechanics, engineering, technology and specialty areas such as cabinetry, upholstery and painting can find opportunities in this industry. Within the next decade, demand will be highest for aircraft maintenance technicians (AMTs). An AMT is responsible for maintaining the electrical and mechanical components of an aircraft. This type of job offers continuing education, longevity, stability, competitive pay, benefits and room for growth. Team members have opportunities to move into supervisory roles where they would manage teams within an aircraft hangar.

Skilled technicians wanted

In addition to a career as an AMT, individuals can find interesting and rewarding opportunities in avionics where developments in technology and advanced GPS systems present continued education for trained and skilled technicians. Exterior paint and detail specialists are in demand as well and creative minds that are energized by solving engineering challenges can find meaningful and fulfilling work. In aviation, our work is more than just a job. It is a career where dreams take flight.
