What you can expect to experience while on the job
Overall employment of aircraft and avionics equipment mechanics and technicians is projected to grow 3 percent from 2016 to 2026, slower than the average for all occupations. Employment growth will vary by occupation (see table below). Air traffic is expected to increase gradually over the coming decade, and will require additional aircraft maintenance, including that performed on new aircraft. Some airlines may outsource maintenance work to specialized maintenance and repair shops both domestically and abroad. This practice is expected to reduce employment growth opportunities in the air transportation industry over the next 10 years.Read More
