Recently high school and college students across the country have shown a declining interest in aviation, and in particular in general aviation. In response, and in order to expose potential students the many exciting and rewarding careers in aviation, Duncan Aviation of Lincoln, NE has organized Aviation Career Day 2008. Duncan will bring about 600 junior and senior high school students from across Nebraska to what it is calling "Adjust Your Altitude" n order to promote interest in aviation as a career.
Industry experts predict that this lack of interest in becoming aviation maintenance technicians (AMTs) will lead to a shortage in AMTs in the future, and have organized this event to promote interest in aviation careers among high school students. The goal is to educate students about the unique career opportunities available in aviation.
This event will be held on Friday, October 17th and the Strategic Air & Space Museum which is located between Lincoln and Omaha Nebraska. Duncan Aviation employs about 2,000 and supports the aviation needs of governmental and business aircraft operators at two service facilities located in Lincoln, NE and Battle Creek, MI. These locations are supplemented with over 20 satellite avionics facilities strategically located around the US along with rapid response teams to provide aircraft system problem solutions 24/7.
More information on this event can be found at Duncan Aviation Career Day 2008. If you are interested in pursuing a career in aviation this event may be for you.
Until next time keep your wings straight and level Hersch!
