AVIONICS AIRCRAFT ENGINEERS IN DEMAND
AVIATION Australia has indicated that there is an increasing demand for avionics engineers in the national aviation industry.
Technical training manager Mark Thompson said many airlines would require people with a greater understanding of the avionic systems that supported their aircraft than ever before.
“As we see modern aircraft types such as the Boeing 787 and Airbus A350 become the aircraft of choice for many airlines, these same aircraft will require a greater understanding of the avionic systems that support them more than ever before,” he said.
“These systems underpin the safe and reliable product they are and additionally are the foundation for the enhanced customer experience that the various airlines now provide.”
Supporting the demand for avionics engineers, Aviation Australia’s Eliza Freeman, who recently completed her apprenticeship, explained where avionics was heading in the future.
“The once-niche avionic industry is evolving into a more digital sphere and the industry is seeing less hydraulics,” she said.
“The aviation profession is often overlooked through lack of understanding and little realisation that there is a demand for avionics professionals.
“Most people don’t realise how vital an avionics engineer is in making an aircraft fly.”
Aviation Australia offers both a certificate IV and a diploma of aeroskills, in avionics as well as mechanical. For more information on how to become an avionics aircraft maintenance engineer, call or visit the website.
