Cape Air & NAA Announce Preferred Hiring Pathway Program

May 16, 2017

Cape Air and National Aviation Academy (NAA) announce the implementation of a Preferred Hiring Pathway designed to give NAA graduates priority access to new-hire technician positions.

The Preferred Hiring Pathway is intended to assist NAA and Cape Air in the selection, training and education of potential new-hire aviation maintenance technicians (AMTs).

AMTs keep aircraft in safe flying condition by servicing, repairing and overhauling aircraft and aircraft components while following detailed federal regulations set by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). AMTs are in high demand as the industry expands and technician’s age out of the aviation workforce.

Similar to Cape Air’s various pilot pathway programs, technicians selected for Cape Air’s Preferred Hiring Path program will be of the highest quality, demonstrating the skills, knowledge, personal and professional qualifications to perform as an airline maintenance member. Students from both NAA locations (New England and Tampa Bay) may apply.

Preferred Hiring Pathway Requirements:

  • Complete the General section of approved Part 147 core curriculum with a grade average of 90% or higher
  • Submit a completed application
  • Submit two character references
  • Pass the Cape Air interview process

Students who are successfully admitted to the program will have the opportunity to enhance their personal and professional growth by attending job shadowing events at Cape Air maintenance bases in Hyannis and Boston while attending NAA.

After the successful completion of NAA’s combined airframe and power plant curriculum, candidates within the Preferred Hiring Pathway may qualify for a final interview for employment.
