Attracting composite professionals from outside aviation – the fight is on

2015.05.28

One much discussed technology that has brought significant change into the aviation industry is definitely composites. For instance, they constitute, by weight, 53% of the Airbus A350XWB's structure. As a result, apart from reduced weights, Airbus suggests the airliner will create just 40% of the corrosion-related inspection and maintenance burden of a traditional aluminum aircraft. However, when it comes to maintenance of such machines, MROs need to transform their product and service offerings substantially to qualify for this work, thus facing continuous challenges, especially in the area of maintenance training.

Why recruitment fails: aviation MRO needs more attractiveness

2015.04.21

With a global economic footprint of some $2.4 trillion, the consequences of workforce shortages in the aviation industry are especially problematic. Meanwhile, various studies suggest that with air transportation demand set to double by 2030, nearly a million new pilots, maintenance technicians, air traffic controllers and cabin crew will be needed to keep the industry moving forward. However, current recruitment efforts are reported to fall short of this figure.
