SENATE ADDRESSES MAINTENANCE TECH SHORTAGE

What is quickly becoming a critical shortage of aviation maintenance technicians has caught the attention of the U.S. Senate.

In an attempt to spur more new A&Ps, Sens. Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.), Richard Bluementhal (D-Conn.), Jerry Moran (R-Kan.), and Maria Cantwell (D-Wash.) sponsored the Aviation Maintenance Workforce Development Pilot Program, which was introduced March 7. The bill has overwhelming support from a diverse group of aviation industry organizations including AOPA.
