March 7, 2013 – Finding dynamic, innovative employees capable of developing new systems, processes and techniques that help fuel the success of an operation for years to come is a major challenge facing aviation and aerospace companies and fixed- and rotary-wing operators of all sizes.

And with a looming crisis of retiring pilots, maintenance workers, business operations and support staff, it’s little wonder upper management types are nervous about the prospects for the future.

In recent industry roundtables on both the rotary- and fixed-wing side, panel members have voiced their concerns about finding “Next Gen” achievers. They also agreed one of the best ways to help alleviate the impending resource crisis is for educational institutions and industry associations to work together to properly educate the developing workforce about the opportunities available in aviation and aerospace.

Wings and Helicopters are helping in this quest with the introduction of two key initiatives: our Careers in Aviation Expo and our Top 10 Under 40 special. Set for Saturday, April 6, at the Holiday Inn Yorkdale in Toronto, Wings and Helicopters Careers in Aviation Expo features four information-packed panels including a keynote covering a variety of career paths such as flight operations, maintenance/engineering, business and operational capacities, navigation and more.

Key industry experts will explain the intricacies of their important aviation roles and reveal just what it takes to make your mark in the skies. Aviation educational professionals will also be on hand to let you know what you can expect in school, and more importantly, make your mark with potential employers!

Finding “Next Gen” achievers is indeed a challenge and it won’t be easy to replace so many skilled workers across a variety of disciplines.
