AviationWorks4U.org Launched to Expose More Aviation Careers
By Ti Windisch
July 27, 2017 - The Air Line Pilots Association, the National Air Traffic Controllers Association, and EAA, have announced a new joint venture: www.AviationWorks4U.org.
A now up-and-running website, AviationWorks4U’s mission is to “[promote] careers throughout our industry to ensure the availability of these unique careers for generations to come.”
Paul Ryder, Jim Ullmann, and Bret Steffen represented ALPA, NACTA, and EAA, respectively, at the Wednesday morning press conference where the announcement was made.
“It’s an initiative that brings together the aviation community to introduce aviation to middle and high school students and, just as important, introduce them to the multiple careers in our industry,” Paul said.
AviationWorks4U also brings multiple aviation organizations together, to work in unison, leading young people into aviation careers, many of which have a myriad of openings at the moment.
In addition to pilots, AviationWorks4U also offers information about becoming an air traffic controller, aviation maintenance technician, aircraft dispatcher, and a flight attendant. The initiative seeks to put together information to send to school counselors, offering helpful information about the opportunities that are available in various aviation disciplines.
One of the goals behind the collaborative website is to encourage more aviation organizations to get involved. Both career and partnership contract information can be found at www.AviationWorks4U.org.
