Career & Salary

  • WORK IN THE U.S

Aviation is one of the world’s fastest growing industries. The FAA
2013-2033 Forecast predicts that demand for air travel will continue to grow
as the economy grows. By 2033, U.S. commercial carriers are projected
to transport 1.15 billion passengers, a total of 1.46 trillion passenger miles.

This growth combined with a retiring workforce means an increasing demand for aircraft
mechanics and avionics technicians. This trend is expected to continue as long as the demand for qualified technicians outpaces the supply.
