Air traffic is expected to increase gradually over the coming decade, so there will be more demand for workers in all areas of the aviation industry. Despite this, for positions dealing with repair and maintenance, employment growth opportunities may be reduced as some airlines may outsource maintenance work to specialized maintenance and repair shops, both domestically and abroad. Furthermore, airlines employing more efficient scheduling systems and using aircrafts with more passenger capacity may limit additional demand for pilot jobs. Despite these factors, these jobs are still projected to experience job growth, albeit slower than the average for all occupations.
Aviation jobs include pilots, mechanics, engineers, flight attendants and air traffic controllers. These jobs center around all aspects of the maintenance and operating of airline equipment and aircrafts, preparing aircraft carriers for flight and ensuring that flights are running on schedule. Flight attendant positions handle the management of passengers before, during, and after flights.

New workers start out as developmental controllers until they complete all requirements for becoming a certified air traffic controller.

They typically enter the occupation after attending a Part 147 FAA-approved aviation maintenance technician school that award a certificate of completion recognized as an alternative to the experience requirements needed.
