Careers in aviation include aircraft dispatcher, flight/pilot training, airframe and powerplant, aviation maintenance and avionics. Training for a career in avionics covers aspects such as aircraft navigation, radio communications, weather radar systems and engine maintenance. Aviation mechanics can earn up to $50,000 a year. For airline jobs, prospects generally are better in regional and low-cost carriers than in major airlines, where competition for many jobs is keen. An additional benefit is free or reduced-fare transportation for airline employees and their immediate families. Stop dreaming of a career in aviation and “fly” to a school near you!
