The Demand in Aviation Maintenance Continues to Grow
To connect students and alumni with aviation industry representatives, National Aviation Academy (NAA) hosted a career fair on July 11, 2019 in New England. Industry leaders were in attendance scouting students, conducting interviews, and making offers. Companies such as Boeing, Envoy, General Electric (GE), Gulfstream and SkyWest were onsite, among numerous others. 85 interviews were conducted in total. Hire offers are still coming in!
Increasing demand for skilled workers continues to drive the need for training programs at schools such as NAA. Quality training is essential to develop the knowledge and hands-on skills required for careers in aviation maintenance.
NAA focuses solely on aviation maintenance training to meet the specific needs in aviation and parallel industries. Aircraft mechanics are in high demand as the aerospace industry expands and technicians age out of the aviation workforce. With NAA’s 14 or 21-month accelerated training programs, students are able to learn from experienced instructors and prepare for local to global career opportunities.
According to Boeing’s 2019 Pilot & Technician Outlook, 769,000 new aviation maintenance technicians will be needed by 2038. Given the continued demands in the industry, upcoming careers fairs are anticipated to provide vast opportunity for students and alumni.
NAA’s next career fair will be held at NAA’s Tampa Bay campus on Thursday, September 26, 2019.
NAA makes a huge difference for anyone considering a career as an aircraft mechanic. It was a memorable experience to this day. It’s a great decision for anyone willing to work hard.
