Quick Question – Your Professional Life

As part of its efforts to support aviation workforce development, ARSA is working to chronicle the careers of people in the industry. The purpose of this work is to demonstrate how the maintenance community can provide more than just a “job,” but an opportunity for passionate individuals to develop skills while growing personally and professionally.

In May, ARSA organized 15 other industry associations to jointly submit comments to the FAA’s Draft Advisory Circular 65-30B, “Overview of the Aviation Maintenance Profession.” Explaining its assistance to the agency in describing the “profession” of aviation maintenance, the group’s submission said:

“There is no single point of entry or career trajectory for aviation maintenance professionals. Depending on knowledge, education, experience, skill and curiosity, individuals with an interest in the kinds of hands-on, intellectually-challenging and technically-skilled work performed in all manner of aviation maintenance facilities may begin or continue a career through any one of the ‘pathways’ described [the industry-provided draft of the AC].”

In this month’s “quick question,” ARSA is taking the next step in illustrating the “pathways” available to aviation maintenance professionals. By sharing your thoughts – this is the most open-ended monthly questionnaire yet – you will help build descriptive timelines showing how individuals enter into, learn from and succeed through the industry. You are not required to provide any identifying information, but the option is available for those will to share further about their experiences.

Note: The question is displayed in its own, embedded window. If the “Submit” button is not visible on the screen, you must scroll within the survey window in order to submit your response.

If the embedded survey does not appear/load, open the survey independently by visiting: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/qq-avmroprofession.
