With the graduation season comes questions for many seniors/graduates as to “what’s next?” Some have made college/work plans already. We realize, however, that not all graduating seniors have a plan at the time of graduation and we’d like to provide an option for them.

United Airlines is seeing a quick rebound in air travel. As a result, they are forecasting a significant need to hire new technicians soon. Becoming an aviation technician is a rewarding career choice for students with mechanical aptitude in critical local roles. Therefore, United Airlines has partnered with Spartan College of Aeronautics and Technology to provide aviation technician training to help them fill their hiring needs over the next 10 years. Unlike a 4-year traditional college route, the partnership with United Airlines and Spartan College can prepare and adequately train technicians, per the FAA Part 147 requirements in up to two years.

Why is this important and what does the career path look like? The Boeing Pilot and Technician Outlook Report for 2020-2039 indicates that there will be a need of approximately 192,000 aviation technicians in North America over the next 20 years. That number jumps to 739,000 worldwide for the same period of time.

Please join us for an information session hosted by United Airlines, along with your graduating senior, so they can share more about this opportunity and the industry outlook. They will speak directly to their hiring guidelines including compensation and benefits. The information session will be held on Thursday, May, 27th from 5:30-6:15pm via the following Zoom link:

We look forward to sharing this exciting industry with you!
