opportunity. As manufacturers, we recognize the importance of ensuring that there
is a healthy supply of qualified aviation
maintenance technicians to maintain the
products and keep them operating safely
and efficiently.
To promote a better understanding of the
maintenance and repair sector, GAMA continues to foster outreach efforts that showcase aviation as a personally and financially
rewarding career path, promote workforce

development through education and STEM
initiatives and provide sponsorship or support
to numerous maintenance related endeavors.
For example, GAMA is working with some
of our member company manufacturers and
repair stations to develop workforce videos for
the aspiring skilled technician. These videos
will provide insight into daily job functions,
schedule and career opportunities within
the manufacturing or repair station community, which differs to that of the typical
airline environment.
We are a proud sponsor and supporter of
the University of the District of Columbia
Community College Aviation Maintenance
Technology Program. GAMA is supporting their participation in the Aerospace
Maintenance Competition, taking place at
the 2020 MRO Americas, rescheduled for
the fall. Additionally, GAMA supports several legislative and regulatory proposals to
update the Airman Certification Standards
and to modernize the Part 147 Aviation
Maintenance Technician Schools to ensure
that future aviation professionals are trained
on current safety practices and technologies.
It is essential that these proposals meet the
needs of our evolving industry, especially as

we begin to broaden into electric and hybrid
propulsion, additive manufacturing, remote
inspections, cyber security and augmented
or virtual reality.
The more exposure that our industry can
offer to future generations about careers in
aviation, the better off we are. To sustain and
grow our incredible industry, GAMA has partnered up with the Air Line Pilots Association
and other associations on the Aviation Works
4U initiative. This program, which is aimed
at middle and high school students across
the country, uses aviation STEM resources
and engagement opportunities to expose
students to careers in aviation. GAMA is
partnering in this program to ensure that
both the manufacturing and maintenance
sectors are properly represented as rewarding
careers opportunities.
GAMA's Aviation Design Challenge, which
is currently underway, offers high school students the opportunity to learn the principles
of the science of flight and airplane design
through an accelerated program. The teams
then apply that knowledge to modify an airplane design and complete a mission in a virtual fly-off. This STEM-based program has
reached more than 3,000 students in more
than 400 high schools, spanning 47 states and
has seen past winners and entrants pursue
careers in aviation.
This year, as GAMA celebrates its 50th
anniversary. Our focus is on being future
ready and taking the aviation industry to new
and exciting heights. To do so, it is imperative that we strengthen our workforce and
highlight the amazing opportunities that
exist in general aviation, especially those in
maintenance and repair.
