Meeting Workforce Needs

Addressing Industry Challenges

October 18, 2007

Brian Finnegan, A&P

President, Professional Aviation Maintenance Association

Interagency Aerospace Revitalization Task Force

slide2

An Aging Workforce: Lost Knowledge

A Changing Demographic

1990 = 1.1 mill. total workers

2006 = 630,000 total workers

Average Age of an Aerospace Worker in 2006 = 45

Workers 25 to 34:

1992 = 27%

2006 = 15%

In 2006 one out of four were

eligible for retirement.

slide3

Market Instability: The Cost of Jobs

Every major U.S. carrier has outsourced repair work.

U.S. airlines spent 64% of their maintenance budgets at outsourced facilities last year, up from 37% in 1996.

High rates of worker displacement

Lack of portable credentials

slide4

Minimum Industry Standards:Who’s Qualified?

The FAA allows non-certificated people to work in the hangar

No specified ratio of certificated aircraft technicians

No standard to determine if one mechanic is more qualified than another

slide5

Education Pipeline:The Attraction Factor

Strong STEM Programs identify and cultivate young talent

There is a disconnect between STEM and entry into aerospace careers – attractive career paths.

Aerospace careers have lost their futuristic edge - not perceived as challenging and $$$ rewarding

slide6

Solution:Industry Standards Through Certification

Broad Aviation Industry Consensus

STEM & Industry Support

Strong workforce for a strong industry - prepared for the challenges of the 21st Century

slide7
