QUANTITATIVE STUDY--AIRCRAFT INDUSTRY EMPLOYMENT NEEDS IN UTAH, COLORADO AND NEVADA. FINAL REPORT.
POMMERVILLE, ROBERT W.; STEPHENS, JOHN F.
TO PROVIDE THE UTAH STATE BOARD OF EDUCATION WITH A BASIS FOR FUTURE DECISIONS REGARDING THE ESTABLISHMENT OF TRAINING PROGRAMS FOR AIRCRAFT PILOTS, AIRFRAME AND POWER PLANT MECHANICS, AND ELECTRONIC, RADIO, AND RADAR TECHNICIANS, A THREE-STATE EMPLOYMENT PROJECTION WAS MADE FOR THESE OCCUPATIONS. QUESTIONNAIRES WERE MAILED TO ADMINISTRATORS IN CHARGE OF PERSONNEL OF ALL 104 COMMERCIALLY OPERATED AILINE COMPANIES IN THE THREE-STATE AREA, AND 39 (37.5 PERCENT) WERE RETURNED, SOME NOT FULLY COMPLETED. THE SURVEY RESPONSES WERE CORROBORATED WITH THE FINDINGS OF OTHER STUDIES MADE IN THE FIELD. BECAUSE THE AIRLINE INDUSTRY IS A NATIONAL INDUSTRY, AN ASSESSMENT OF ITS NEEDS IN THE LIMITED GEOGRAPHICAL AREA WAS DEEMED DIFFICULT, ESPECIALLY FOR THE MAJOR AIRLINES. IT WAS FOUND THAT THE NEED FOR PILOTS, BOTH NATIONALLY AND IN THE AREA, WAS BEING ADEQUATELY MET. FOR MECHANICS AND TECHNICIANS, A NATIONAL NEED WAS ASCERTAINED, BUT NOT AN AREA NEED. EVEN FOR THE SMALLER INTRASTATE AIRLINES, THE CURRENT SOURCES OF MANPOWER SUPPLY WERE DEEMED NEARLY ADEQUATE. IT WAS RECOMMENDED THAT NO ADDITIONAL TRAINING PROGRAMS BE INSTITUTED IN THE STATE FOR ANY OF THE OCCUPATIONAL AREAS DISCUSSED. (ET)
