Are Aircraft Mechanics in Demand?

MIAT College of Technology Aviation Maintenance Program
MIAT College of Technology Aviation Maintenance Program prepares you for the growing aviation industry!

Most employers in the aviation industry are worried about hiring for aviation mechanics. The industry is experiencing two difficult challenges.

  1. Year over year growth in the market
  2. And, a need to replace workers leaving the occupation do to retirement

On May 8, 2018 a bipartisan bill, knows as “The Aviation Workforce Development Pilot Program Bill, H.R. 5701,” was proposed to help fill vacancies for aviation maintenance technicians. The legislation was created to help avoid the effect job vacancies will have in the aviation industry, from general aviation to commercial aviation. U.S. Rep. Mullin states, “With more than 2.58 million passengers traveling through U.S. airports every day, it’s crucial that the aviation industry has the skilled workforce they need to get every passenger to their destination safely.”

Aviation Mechanic SchoolAviation technology has also evolved from year to year. To gain the necessary skills and experience needed for an aviation maintenance technician, training is required. Schools like MIAT College of Technology are trying to fill the gap and train students that want a challenging hands-on career.

The outlook for those wishing to enter the aviation maintenance industry is very good. The ARSA (Aeronautical Repair Station Association) survey of members indicates that employment demand is high for Aviation Mechanics. It states, “98 percent of ARSA members surveyed expect to add to or maintain the current size of their workforce, which will require hiring for new positions, filling vacancies or both. 82 percent of ARSA members reported difficulty finding qualified technical workers (37 percent report a lot of difficulty).

Large to small, the aviation industry needs more workers. Aircraft mechanics are in demand and MIAT College of Technology can help. Sign up for a campus tour today and find out if this is a career that will match your needs.
