Pandemic + Maintainers = Job Security?
While the aviation industry did experience drastic changes as a result of the pandemic, the planes and radios still needed people to work on them. Travel restrictions meant that there were more planes on the ground than in the sky. It’s far easier to work on planes when they are grounded and not being demanded for travel. It is also far less pressure for aircraft maintenance workers to adjust and repair planes when they are not in high demand.
Through all the changes the aviation industry experienced one thing remained constant: the need for professionals in aviation maintenance. Workers who know planes well inside and out and can adjust and repair them will always be necessary. During the Covid closures, while the cabin crew and pilots who fly were unable to work, the aviation maintenance technicians were in more need than ever. Planes were being stored in the warehouses on the ground and planes will always need work when they are being unused.
Airlines and airports are now once again filled with people wanting to resume their regular travel plans both nationally and internationally. Because of this demand, all of the aircraft that was grounded before are now dusting off and getting ready to take to the skies. It’s a good thing maintainers have continued their work even during the closures. Now travelers will be able to use the machinery that was repaired, adjusted, checked and ready for service. All thanks to maintainers, who will always be essential to aviation.
