Starting off becoming a Aviation tech? Think again!
What type of training is required?
Some of the requirements when becoming a aero engineer tech include air science, computer tech, electrical maintenance, the overall construction of a plane, and how a craft is propelled. Once you are accepted into a college you will be spending countless credit hours studying to get your degree well over 120 credits just for the basics in the field of aviation tech.
About 70% are able to complete the course which is not a bad percentage as long as you are one of the graduates. After completing all the training necessary for aviation you will have to go through the hiring process which can take time considering todays economy. Many graduates with a bachelors degree do not find work in their field right out of college, while many more go on to a career path they do not enjoy. So it is best to spend some time thinking about what field you really want to be a part of for the next 20 to 30 years.
Another thing to consider is although the starting average salary that a aircraft mechanic can earn is $50,000 a year for a basic aviation tech, what you probably arent aware of is that most of the jobs for techs are outsourced to foreign countries and has increased by 70%.
Some of the issues related to Aviation tech outsourcing include:
- Passenger safety-Due to repairmen that arent required to have a FAA certification when signing off for insepections. Ther is no real standards put into place for the work performed.
- Fewer qualified technicians at home- So those who have qualified to become a aviation tech have been becoming fewer and fewer.
- Increase in the following- Delays, cancellations, drug trafficking, polluting the air from all the extra flights that are being serviced and many other issues.
Although becoming part of the aviation tech field may seem like a great thing to do it is still important to consider the overall package of what is involved.
