Constant Aviation, 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.
“Constant Aviation’s partnership with Western Technical College will make many career opportunities available to its students,” said Nicole Krafchek, Constant Aviation’s head of recruiting and employee engagement.
“We have always focused on attracting top talent and team members with a passion for their careers. Western Tech’s mission, together with academic programs that align with the aviation industry’s needs, make this partnership a perfect fit.”
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.
“Western Tech’s curriculums are perfectly suited as a head start to our apprentice programs,” said Jim Yarborough, Constant Aviation’s head of work force development.
“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.”
Chief Executive Officer at Western Tech: “Our curriculum fits seamlessly with the industry’s expectations for future generations of aviation technicians, preparing students so they immediately can transition into the field using the knowledge they’ve just developed.
“It’s a remarkably small commitment for the dividends that are paid.”
