Federal Aviation Administration (DOT), Washington, DC. Office of General Aviation.; Aerospace Industries Association of America, Inc., Washington, DC.
The document briefly presents career information in the field of aerospace industry. Employment exists in three areas: (1) professional and technical occupations in research and development (engineers, scientists, and technicians); (2) administrative, clerical, and related occupations (engineers, scientists, technicians, clerks, secretaries, stenographers, typists, tabulating machine and computer operators, and other office personnel); and (3) production occupations (sheet metal work, machining and tool fabrication, other metal-processing, assembly and installation, inspecting and testing, flight checkout, materials handling and maintenance, and custodial). Aerospace employment is expected to rise by the mid-1980's. Job opportunities are most favorable for highly-trained scientists, engineers, and technicians. Less skilled and unskilled workers are needed to fill entry level production positions. (Employment statistics for the industry up to December 1975 are provided.) (Author/EC)
