Bombardier is looking to fill more than 200 positions across its U.S. service center network, the Canadian airframer announced today. Specifically, the company is hiring A&P technicians; avionics/electrical technicians; customer project managers; interns; lead technicians; managers; paint and interior technicians; quality inspectors; structures technicians; and supervisors. The positions are open at its service centers in Dallas; Hartford, Connecticut; Tucson, Arizona; Wichita; and Fort Lauderdale/Miami Opa Locka.
Fueling the demand for workers is a 2 percent annual growth of the business aviation fleet based on the industry fleet numbers between 2015 and 2018 in the segments where Bombardier competes. Additonally, global wealth has continued to rise and is a leading contributor to business aviation, Bombardier said. Citing information from Wealth-X, Bombardier noted the number of high-net-worth individuals increased 10 percent each year between 2015 and 2019.
Overall, Bombardier expects its aftermarket services to grow to $2 billion by 2025. During that period, Bombardier plans to expand its aftermarket services to about 27 percent of total revenue.
