QUANTITATIVE MEASURE OF NEED FOR AVIATION-ORIENTED TECHNICAL PERSONNEL IN SOUTHWEST REGION. FEASIBILITY STUDY FOR COCHISE COLLEGE, DOUGLAS, ARIZONA.
THOMASON, LESLIE L.
CONDUCTED FOR COCHISE COLLEGE BY THE CESSNA AIRCRAFT COMPANY, THIS STUDY ASSESSED THE EMPLOYMENT NEEDS FOR TECHNICALLY TRAINED PERSONNEL. EXAMINATION OF GOVERNMENT RECORDS, STATISTICAL ANALYSIS, AND COMMUNICATION WITH INDIVIDUALS AND GROUPS SHOWED THAT FIVE OF SIX MAJOR EMPLOYERS OF AIRFRAME AND POWERPLANT ("A AND P") MECHANICS PREFERRED MECHANICS TRAINED AT SCHOOLS APPROVED BY THE FEDERAL AVIATION AGENCY, OF WHICH THERE ARE ONLY 66 IN THE UNITED STATES. THE PRESENT 236 SUCH MECHANICS ARE EXPECTED TO INCREASE TO 475 IN 1975. WITH THE ADDITION OF REPLACEMENTS, THE STUDY INDICATES THAT, BETWEEN 1965 AND 1975, 884 NEWLY TRAINED PERSONNEL WILL BE NEEDED IN ARIZONA. THE AUTHOR CONCLUDES THAT COCHISE COLLEGE WOULD BE JUSTIFIED IN ESTABLISHING AN "A AND P" MECHANICS PROGRAM AND RECOMMENDS CLOSE COORDINATION WITH THE STATE AERONAUTICS COMMISSION, THE ARIZONA AVIATION TRADES ASSOCIATION, AND THE UTILITY AIRPLANE COUNCIL.
