Unique Opportunity to Work on Historical and Modern Airplanes at EAA

January 3, 2019 - At EAA we are dedicated to preserving, showcasing, and flying a wide spectrum of aircraft that span more than 100 years of aviation achievements and history. Whether it’s from the early days of flight like those of the golden age of aviation that includes the Ford Tri-Motor, Travel Air, Swallow or New Standard biplanes, or warbirds like the only flying North American Aviation P-64, Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress, North American B-25 Mitchell, and AT-6 Texan. Not to mention more modern examples of both GA and experimental types like the TBM 850, Piper Aztec, Cessna 150, 172 and 210 aircraft, along with a Wag-Aero CUBy, Van’s RV-6A and RV-12, and a twin-engine Lockwood AirCam.

Our aircraft are as diverse as our more than 215,000 EAA members, but to keep aviation history from disappearing and to keep these airplanes flying, EAA needs your help.

We are currently seeking several dedicated and passionate A&P mechanics who possess experience working on GA aircraft and have a burning desire to literally step back in time and maintain these and other historic treasures from the past in our vast aircraft collection.

Our current team of EAA aircraft mechanics share a positive attitude that makes EAA’s Kermit Weeks Hangar an enjoyable place to not only put their passions to work but also see history come alive. While we enjoy a variety of aircraft to work on, the experience levels of our mechanics are just as diverse. As part of the EAA aircraft maintenance team, you will work side by side with several seasoned mechanics and obtain skills you may have thought were never possible while creating lifelong friendships.

If you are passionate about aviation and have always dreamed about working on both historic and modern day aircraft and are dedicated to ensuring that future generations will be able to touch, hear, and in many cases experience the joy of flight in many of these aircraft, then what are you waiting for?

Apply now if you have the experience, personality, and passion for aviation that can help grow our EAA aircraft mechanic team. Please see the online job posting or reach out to our human resources department at 800-564-6322.
