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.
