Aviation is a field that’s never short of challenges. As an aviation and aerospace technician, you’ll be involved in every stage of a product’s development from planning and designing to production and maintenance. Opportunities for women in aviation exist at all levels of education and employment. Consider working on the commercial aviation side, as a pilot or flight attendant. The aviation industry offers plenty of opportunities for women. You can work in many different areas. You can travel the world and work in exciting locations, sometimes even doing jobs that are critical to the success of the company or industry you’re working for.
There has been an increase in the number of women entering the aviation industry over the last decade or so. Many companies are realizing that there is untapped potential for them in attracting more women to aviation and aerospace careers and they are now working fairly hard to do so. Of course, there is still room for improvement, but the good news is that there is a major effort underway right now to promote female involvement in this well-paying and exciting field, and there are plenty of excellent career options out in Aviation.
Let’s take a look at some of the topmost carrier opportunities in this field:
Certified Aircraft Dispatcher: The flight dispatcher career offers a unique opportunity for women to participate in and influence aviation. Although there is a great deal of variety among the duties of a flight dispatcher, the role touches on nearly every aspect of aviation. As a career, the flight dispatcher offers opportunities to travel, learn about aircraft systems, suggest solutions to problems, coordinate activities with multiple people and departments, and interact with pilots and other employees.
Air Traffic Controller: Air traffic controllers are highly trained professionals that oversee their passengers and cargo, according to the Federal Aviation Administration. The job entails giving clear verbal or visual instructions to pilots over the radio concerning air traffic patterns and other issues concerning flight safety while ensuring all federally required procedures are adhered to.
Aircraft Mechanic: Aircraft mechanics have one of the longest training periods of all blue-collar workers. The average aircraft mechanic graduates from a specialized high school take an apprenticeship and undergo an intensive period of on-the-job training in the district repair facility. Trainee mechanics work under a master mechanic and go to night school to learn theory and FAA regulations.
As with any career, aerospace has its pros and cons. People go into aerospace for a variety of reasons – to travel the world, make lots of money, help humanity by flying airplanes – and the industry has jobs to fit many different desires. Many people who work in aviation are in love with the idea of flight, but it’s also a place where you get to do math every day. And everyone agrees that it’s cool.DISHA SAPKALEParticipant@42dishaJuly 5, 2021 at 9:57 pm #32968
