NAA Career Fair Highlights Demand in Aviation Maintenance

Did you know that over 754,000 new maintenance technicians will be needed to meet the demand in aviation maintenance by 2037? Boeing’s 2018 Pilot and Technician Outlook has indicated that the demand for skilled technicians outpaces the rate at which positions can currently be filled. NAA’s Aviation Maintenance Career Fairs are designed to put qualified students and alumni in front of employers who are actively looking to recruit personnel. NAA’s most recent Career Fair took place on Thursday, March 21, 2019 at the New England campus in Concord, MA. Industry leaders were onsite scouting students, conducting interviews and making offers.

The demands of the global aviation industry represent a rare and desirable aspect of field: tangible and continuous job growth. NAA focuses solely on aviation maintenance training to meet the specific need for Airframe and Powerplant (A&P) mechanics in aviation and parallel industries. Companies including Delta, Embraer, Endeavor, GE, United and many more were in attendance.

Offers of employment have been extended to students by AeroRepair, Embraer, GE, NextAir, Piedmont, with more in the pipeline. Follow-up interviews are continuing to be conducted by several companies as well.

It is our pleasure to invite industry partners to campus to partner in meeting the demands in aviation. It is also our mission to keep current with maintenance trends and the skills that our students must be equipped with once they enter the field. Engaging directly with employers is key to this shared goal. Our next Career Fair will be at NAA’s Tampa Bay campus on Thursday, May 9, 2019. Stay tuned for more details!

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.
