New Year, New Career

It’s almost that time again. Time to start thinking about your new year’s resolutions and actually stick to them. But before you commit to that new paleo diet or cut back on your spending habits drastically, you should consider starting the new year with a new and fulfilling career.

The aviation industry is advancing more and more each day and opportunities, especially in aviation maintenance, continue to rise. Many of today’s technicians are getting ready to retire, which means more job opportunities will open up for the next generation of mechanics.

The demand will continue to increase as long as people continue to travel and airplanes need to be maintained. According to the Boeing Company’s Pilot and Technician Outlook, 609,000 new technicians will be needed to maintain the world fleet over the next 20 years. In North America alone, 113,000 mechanics will be needed by 2034.

In just 14 months, you could be on your way to a new job, new life and new opportunities. With National Aviation Academy’s Aviation Maintenance Technology program, you will be prepared to take the exams required to obtain your FAA Airframe and Powerplant certifications. With the program’s hands-on lab training, students are able to develop their technical skills even before graduation. These lab projects supplement the lectures allowing students to gain real world experience.

Once you have your certifications, you could find employment working as a maintenance technician in corporate aviation, commercial airlines, general aviation, at an MRO (maintenance, repair and overhaul), working on helicopters, drones, or even working at an amusement park maintaining the rides.

So step into 2016 with a new mindset and resolution you’ll follow through with. Call NAA today to learn more about our programs and find out when the next class starts!
