Pima Community College Hosts Aviation Career Fair to Fill Gap in Skilled Workforce

Discover potential career opportunities in the aviation industry at Pima Aviation Technology Program career fair

The Aviation Technology Program at Pima Community College in Tucson, Arizona is hosting a career fair and open house for those interested in pursuing a career in the aviation industry. On Tuesday, March 26th from 3 to 6 p.m., attendees will have the chance to meet with local and national aviation employers, interact with top instructors and students at Pima, and take a tour of the hangar.

Pima faculty instructor Chris Barnett notes that there is currently a high demand for workers in the aviation industry. With many individuals retiring before and during COVID, there is a significant gap in the workforce. As a result, the demand for skilled workers in the aviation field is expected to persist for the foreseeable future.

The career fair will be held at the Aviation Technology Center near Valencia Rd. and Park Ave. If you have any story ideas or important issues you’d like to share with Austin “AJ” Janos, a producer for KGUN 9, you can reach him by emailing aj.janos@kgun9.com.
