Throughout the United States, there is a new spirit of hope out there that’s the result of something very important: The “discovery” of parents, the media, and college-aged students of “STEM” careers in science, technology, education, and math.
Needless to say, aviation is one of the most exciting and attractive areas of STEM. Since the Bureau of Labor Statistics published its recent studies indicating that aviation will most likely remain a solid area of employment for the next decade, the news has really gotten around.
It’s Not Just Young People Who Are Seeking Great Careers In Aviation
Although a lot of the growth in aviation over the next decade will probably be represented by youngsters launching their first careers, they are not the only ones who are looking to the sky when it comes to great opportunities.
Aviation maintenance is an area that people on their second or even third career can get involved in. With the right technical aptitude and personal traits, it becomes possible to get important Federal Aviation Administration credentials within a relatively short time.
This stands to provide small and mid-sized fleets with important staffing options in the mid-term. However, it’s important to make sure that your roster of aircraft mechanics and technicians is not only “broad,” but “deep.”
That means ensuring that you have the expertise necessary to not only keep your aircraft flying, but make sure they are doing it in a cost-effective way that serves your strategic goals.
Naturally, it’ll take a while for new talent to reach that level!
