Aviation is a fast-growing global industry. As more people and products fly to their destinations all over the globe, the demand for pilots, technicians, mechanics, and other highly trained specialists is growing.
Qualified aviation contractors are in higher demand than ever. Aviation companies are looking for seasonal and project-specific talent to meet rising demand. And some are looking for contractors to fill longer-term needs without adding the extra cost of recruiting, training, and orienting.
Engineering students at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), led by postdoc Joenyoon Lee, are working on a new method to develop aerospace-grade composite materials – without the need for the massive heat and pressure vessels used in current processes.
If you think about it, a perfectly written, well-presented resume that clearly demonstrates your experience and professionalism can change the direction of your entire life. Even as an aviation contractor who may be looking for a shorter-term, high-quality position, being selected based upon the quality of your resume can give you the tools, experience, and contacts that will raise your employability to a whole new level.

For aviation workers, where you live can be a huge factor during a job search.

The field of aviation offers more opportunities for skilled workers than ever before. The demand for engineers, A&P mechanics, avionics technicians, maintenance, and other positions is snowballing as more people and goods will be traveling.
Employees should be aware that the IRS has recently made significant changes in the guidelines for completing your W-4 Tax Form, the Employee’s Withholding Allowance Certificate. This form tells your employer how much you would like for them to withhold from your gross pay for federal tax payments.
Traditionally, airports have an air control tower from where operators guide landing and takeoff of all aircraft. Every airplane scheduled to take off or land must first get clearance from the control tower. Even in modern airports where a few activities are handled remotely, there’s usually an Air Traffic Control (ATC) unit on-site.
