Aviation Search Group reports headhunting assignments up

FORT WORTH, Texas — Aviation Search Group, which specializes in searching for employees in the aviation industry, reports that assignments are up in 2013.

“We are pleased to report key growth in comparison from this time last year,” says Aviation Search Group Director of Sales Grayson Barrows. “We are certainly encouraged by what we have accomplished thus far this quarter and expect solid development through 2013.”

The quantity of searches, revenue and market demand for new headhunting assignments has increased 26% from 2012, reported Barrows.

While many disciplines look to be in demand this year, the following will be a focal point for many:

  • Executive/Management: Chief Operating Officers, Quality Directors and Maintenance Managers. As flight hours and activity increase in 2013 additional emphasis will be on operational functions. Manufacturing facilities will augment existing quality programs with need for additional leaders. Maintenance facilities will react to more flight hours in 2013 requiring personnel for repair and overhaul.
  • Technical/Skilled: Pilots, Engineers and Maintainers. No surprise the industry is experiencing a shortage, he says. As demand increases, companies will continue to identify avenues for recruiting and selecting, training and retaining talent. Budget constraints combined with continued development in vertical-lift, fixed-wing and unmanned system markets are also drivers.
