While the Aerospace Industry has grown over the past few decades, the number of individuals going into the trade has declined.
In 2014, AMT Magazine published an article called the "Perfect Storm" in which they stated that of the 140,000 Licensed Aircraft Techs worldwide, 60% were in the United States.
Of those in the United States: 35 percent are 50 to 65, 45 percent are 40 to 50, and 15 percent 30 to 40 and less than 5 percent age 18 to 30. This was in 2014! The pinch being felt is greater today. This is good news for individuals entering this field.
Throughout the year our center receives calls from well known industry giants with job offerings for those students obtaining their A&P Certificates. Fed-Ex, UPS, AMES, Gulfstream, American Airlines are just a few.
Aircraft on the ground do not make money. And without techs, the aircraft can't fly. This opens the doors for great starting wages with benefits, vacation and travel!
