- The Details of the partnership and what it means for the future of aviation
Constant Aviation, the nation’s leading provider of quality maintenance, repair, overhaul (MRO) and aircraft-on-ground (AOG) services, announced that it is partnering with Western Technical College of El Paso, Texas, to provide flexible, long-term career paths for students looking to enter the high-technology world of aviation maintenance. The partnership comes at an opportune time, since Constant Aviation is seeing a rapidly growing demand for its services, having expanded its nationwide AOG mobile response network by more than 15% this year alone. In order to fulfill needs in AOG and at facilities in Cleveland and elsewhere, the company is recruiting for positions including technicians in avionics, AMT, paint, wire harness and other areas, with many positions offering $2,000 signing bonuses. Under the new partnership, students will be able to exit the Western Tech program and enter directly into the aviation workforce, earning their Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) certifications while also working at Constant Aviation, learning from the best and using the most advanced technology.
Jim Yarborough, Constant Aviation’s head of work force development, “Western Tech’s curriculums are perfectly suited as a head start to our apprentice programs, the quality instructors at Western Tech, the outstanding curriculum and the program’s high standards lend themselves to creating skilled technicians with outstanding earnings potential in a meaningful career.” In addition, Western Tech will work with Constant Aviation on future endeavors to supplement emerging technologies initiatives such as Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS). Constant Aviation has been an authorized UAS service center since 2017 and has been building partnerships to support the market for this emerging technology.
