Emerging careers in the aerospace industry

Pritam Bhavnani, president, Honeywell Aerospace talks about emerging career opportunities within the Indian aerospace industry. Honeywell’s Aero Club initiative provides training to students who are looking to pursue a career in aerospace about the fundamentals of flying and aerospace modelling.
Which are the career opportunities in the Indian aerospace industry?
Students could look at training to join a cabin crew or become an aircraft maintenance engineer.
For those not that keen on flying, there is always a need for ground staff, ticketing agents, airport management, security or customer service.
In the defense aviation sector, outside of pilot opportunities, students can look into fields such as structural engineering, electrical technology, field service engineering, air combat officer training, technical support engineering, supply chain management, technical instruction and project engineering.
There is also ample opportunity as an aviation corps officer, aircraft life support fitter, air warfare officer, avionics technician, machinist, parachute jump instructor and safety and service technician.
Apart from these, there are careers on the safety side that candidates could consider. For instance one could explore a profession as an air traffic controller, who is responsible for the overall safety and efficient flow of air traffic.

    When you publish something like emerging careers, i feel like kicking you. There are a hell lotsa people, completed AME, cleared the required papers and roaming around without a job..some are working in hotel, some in health sectors, in call center & by saying emerging careers you are doing nothing but letting others to fall for aviation only to b jobless later..

    I agree with Mr. Gautam. This totally correct. Atleast for Indian Aviation You can’t say like this. As already there’s innumerable freshers have wasted there time & money to make a career here, but they got nothing. So I’m not impressed with the message given by Mr. Pritam Bhavnani. please don’t give false hopes to youth. If there is really such this then provide job instead of giving such a speech.

    Not to create training create job without
    Any reference based on talent
    In India
    Than the system will run else
    All are only income bussiness
    To ruine the career and talent
    And the big culprit is DGCA India
    And its official not to control over
    Unpaid apprentice trend
