Ramping Up Recruiting for Business Aviation Maintenance Professionals
One of the best ways for companies to combat the business aviation maintenance workforce shortage is to get in front of students early to show them what a vibrant industry aviation is, according to NBAA staff and committee experts. To ensure recruiting success, “a lot of it is going to come down to education, and every single one of us who are already in the business aviation industry being in recruiting mode 100% of the time,” said Jo Damato, NBAA vice president educational strategy and workforce development.
This week, NBAA Flight Plan host Pete Combs speaks with:
Andy Kiehl, Executive Jet Management vice president of fleet maintenance, NBAA Maintenance Communications Subcommittee member
Jay King, Live Oak Banking Company senior aircraft technician
Phil Suglia, Duncan Aviation sales manager, NBAA Maintenance Workforce Development Subcommittee
Jo Damato, NBAA vice president educational strategy and workforce development
The new year promises to be an interesting one for many reasons. What might the U.S. presidential election – and other factors – portend for the pre-owned business aircraft market? Three experts share their perspectives.
With the New Year quickly approaching, we look back on the most popular episodes of NBAA’s Flight Plan podcast over the past 12 months, which featured discussions about professionalism and safety, the relationship between sustainability and emerging technologies in business aviation and how NBAA works with the FAA to keep pilots flying safely through areas of convective weather.
Special events for students have taken on increasing importance as business aviation seeks to differentiate itself from the airlines and attract the talented young people it needs to maintain momentum through the 21st century.
Although business aviation is not a cause of aviation system delays, weather and other factors can pose unexpected travel challenges. If business aviation is in your planning this holiday season, it's best to prepare for potential delays.
