Aviation Careers

Step 2: Aviation Careers

The aviation industry offers career opportunities to suit many interests and backgrounds. The aviation industry is not limited to pilots, flight attendants, ticket agents, airport administrators, astronomy, and other related careers. This industry encompasses a variety of careers such as science, engineering, mathematics, medicine, business, law, technology, communications, and many more.

Some aviation careers require a college degree while others may require a high school diploma, a solid background in math and science or some years of technical training either on the job or through technical schools. All employees, regardless of their jobs, are given some degree of on-the-job training

There are several aviation careers categories. Each category provides a brief description about the various aviation careers, salary range, educational requirement(s), and aviation employer(s) for each aviation career you're interested in pursuing.
