$3,000 in scholarships will be awarded to Aviation Career Day attendees.
To build a career in the aviation industry requires advanced training, knowledge of aircraft systems and how they work together, as well as a broad understanding of aircraft components and parts. For this reason, in the maintenance world, aircraft technicians are viewed with the highest esteem.
On October 3, Duncan Aviation will be hosting an aviation career exhibition, Adjust Your Altitude 2012 in Lincoln, Nebraska. There will be up to 200 high school students from Nebraska, Iowa and Kansas in attendance.
With the predicted technician shortage and a general decline in interest in aviation with high school and college graduates, Duncan Aviation is hoping to reverse this trend by organizing an aviation career day. The goal is to educate students about all of the unique career opportunities in aviation and pique their interest in the industry.
The day will consist of students visiting with representatives from Colleges and Universities, Tech Schools, Aviation exhibitors, Aviation Media, Government Agencies and Military organizations. Students will also get to experiment with some hands-on activities, including testing their aircraft maintenance skills.
This will be an educational, exciting and fun day with $3,000 in scholarships awarded to attendees! Visit aviationcareerday.net for more information.
