If you’re in the service, you could land a well-paid civilian aircraft mechanic position upon leaving the military.
Aircraft mechanics are in extreme demand, and many operators prefer candidates with military experience. And why not? Former service members not only bring the skills of the trade but also maturity and a respect for processes, procedures, and authority. Many also contribute valuable leadership experience.
On Oct. 4, 2022, the rules authorizing a service member to transition to a civilian FAA airframe and powerplant (A&P) license, and the requirements for passing the oral and practical tests, changed significantly. To help US military personnel navigate these new rules, at our next HAI@Work webinar HAI is hosting a panel of experts dedicated to helping service members transition from the military to civilian A&P careers.
These professionals will help you explore your career options, highlight how your military training and experience can count toward a civilian license, walk you through the new A&P license standards, and share what employers are seeking from newly hired A&P mechanics.
Join us Thursday, Dec. 8, at 5 pm eastern (UTC-5) for a special 90-minute HAI@Work webinar for military personnel interested in a civilian A&P career. Our panelists will help educate you about the in-depth process required to obtain an FAA A&P license and what you can do now to ensure your future success.
Our panelists for the webinar are:
• Mike Broderick, Owner, RotorDoc
• Jon Griswold, Retired Army Command MSgt., A&P, and FAA Safety Inspector
• James Simmons, Senior Manager of Aviation Quality, Yulista Aviation
• Art Torres, Founder and Owner, AeroRotor Technologies
• Cliff Vonada, US Air Force Veteran and Owner, MVT Air.
If you can’t make the webinar, please send in your questions in advance so we can be sure the panel answers them. The webinar video will be posted afterward to view at your convenience. Please send questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
