Showing Your Workforce

In partnership with Airlines for America and the Regional Airline Association, the association invites members to support new analysis of the aviation maintenance workforce. Oliver Wyman CAVOK, the aviation consulting firm that produces ARSA’s Annual Global Fleet & MRO Market Assessment, is collecting data to refresh its 2017 assessment of technician employment demand.

Based on Oliver Wyman’s previous findings and the association’s own research, ARSA Vice President of Operations Brett Levanto told Congress in 2018 that repair stations faced a “gathering storm” that has long since broken over the maintenance market. That messaging produced an FAA reauthorization law focused on recruitment and talent development, including multiple studies of the industry’s needs and authorization of grant programs that have since become popular to the point of being under-resourced.

Congressional staffers are collecting priorities for the next FAA reauthorization cycle – the current law runs into 2023 – and the association will be equipped to continue its leadership. Repair stations can assist by answering Oliver Wyman’s call for data.
