AAR, an independent provider of aviation services to commercial and government customers around the world needs to fill more than 150 positions throughout its 60-location aircraft maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) network and sees ATEC and its annual conference as a great way to do it.
“The ATEC Employer Link is a critical stop that allows us to engage with students as well as educators that producing the technical workforce needed throughout the aviation industry,” said Ryan Goertzen, AAR’s vice president workforce development.
Goertzen pointed to the Company’s EAGLE Career Pathway Program designed to provide a systematic path for high school and college students to develop their careers at aviation maintenance providers like AAR and beyond. Selected EAGLE partner schools provide the level of training that exceeds the FAA standards and prepares students for entry to one of five U.S. AAR MRO facilities.
“The EAGLE Career Pathway Program is a perfect example of the importance of attracting students to the careers as aviation technicians,” he said. “We are dedicated to growing the talent necessary to meet the aviation maintenance demands of the future. EAGLE is also a marketing tool used by schools to explain the career path beyond the entry-level technician role to positions in management, maintenance operations, quality control and safety."
“We have over 6,000 employees worldwide for the global MRO business,” Goertzen explained. “A large part of our MRO business is supported by a skilled workforce of over 3,000 aviation maintenance technicians that help us deliver quality service to our customers. That is why it is so important to develop the pipeline. So, we will be an active participant in this year’s ATEC Annual Conference and Career Fair. It is one of our most important opportunities to educate the community on career opportunities in aviation maintenance and we are very much looking forward to interacting with students and educators there.”
