A Bright Future in Aviation

The Outlook.

We as the Aviation Institute of Maintenance train avionic technicians, but what kind of outlook do our graduates receive when they enter the workforce?

We open the door to a whole new vastly growing field. If you ever looked up into the sky as a child, and thought how those big jets stay in flight, we’re the ones keeping them going. Jets not only commute business class passengers or families for holidays, but they also are the lifeline for commercial transportation. How do you expect to get your wireless speakers off Amazon Prime in 2 days or less?

Starting a new career is a big decision, but we can show you the real numbers behind how much this field is growing, and how you can be a part of it.

The Numbers.

According to the 2016 Boeing Current Market Outlook , the amount of passenger traffic was up approximately 7.4% and capacity was up 6.7% in 2015 alone. In the end, that’s a record breaking 80% word wide. Because of lower gas prices, and varied aircraft efficiencies, airlines expected net profits of $35 billion dollars in 2015. Since then, key trends in aviation have skyrocketed and analysts expect to see this progression increase in the coming years.

Over the next 20 years in the field of aviation, Boeing has forecasted the industry will need approximately 39,620 new airplanes, valued at more than $5.9 trillion. With the diversity of the aviation field growing, new planes are needed to make up for the products and people being transported to more remote places. Most of the new traffic will be coming from Asia, The United States, Latin America, the Middle East and the Commonwealth of Independent States. The rise of single-aisle airplanes are the largest contributing factor in this growth.

The Growth.

With the globalized demand escalating tremendously who will build, repair, dispatch, and control all of these planes? YOU, that’s who! The demand is nearly tripling over the next 20 years for aircraft technicians, mechanics, air traffic control officers, and dispatch coordinators. In 2015 there were approximately 22,510 jet airplanes already in service, which is expected to nearly double to 45,240 aircraft by 2036. That means 39,620 new jets have to be manufactured, built, and transported.

A Glimpse into Aviation’s Possible Future?

Posted by on Nov 14, 2014

What will the aviation industry look like in 2030?  2040? You can bet it won’t be what we’re used to today.  Sir Richard Branson, president of Virgin Atlantic Airways, put it this way: “I have no doubt that during my lifetime we will be able to fly from London to Sydney in under two hours, with minimal environmental impact. The awe-inspiring views of our beautiful planet below and zero-gravity passenger fun will bring a whole new meaning to in-flight entertainment.” 1
