The Aircraft Electronics Association (AEA) has launched a revamped online jobs board for its members in an effort to attract and retain avionics technicians, as well as related and complementary positions. “The need for technical talent continues to be an issue for AEA member repair stations and manufacturers," AEA president and CEO Mike Adamson said. “The primary purpose of the new jobs board is to make it easier for AEA members to find their next avionics technician, quality manager, inspector, sales representative, or engineer.”
Searchable by keyword, company name, geographic location, and type of position, the jobs board (aea.net/jobs) allows AEA member companies to post open positions free of charge for 30 days. For positions that remain unfilled following the first 30 days, member companies are allowed to re-post the position, also at no cost.
“I strongly believe that avionics is the most exciting field in aviation, as it combines high-tech with modern airframes, advanced propulsion systems, and NextGen communication, navigation, and connectivity solutions,” Adamson added. “But with workforce retirements, competition from other high-tech industries, and a growing fleet, our industry is faced with the important challenge of recruiting and retaining the next generation of qualified aviation professionals.”
