C&L Aviation Services Looks Forward with Apprenticeship Program

As part of the company’s continued expansion, C&L Aviation Services, a C&L Aviation Group company, announces the formalized start of its Aircraft Maintenance Apprenticeship Program registered with the Department of Labor. The program, set to begin in April, will provide paying jobs to apprentices while they receive on-the-job instruction, preparing them for their FAA certification examination and a career in aviation.

C&L’s apprenticeship program will be a three-year program which will lead to the FAA’s Airframe and Powerplant (A&P) certification. An A&P certificate is required for all aircraft mechanics to sign off on aircraft maintenance. Part of the interview process for applicants will be meeting the C&L mentors and training team and demonstrating mechanical aptitude. Applicants with previous experience and/or a military background may qualify for C&L’s accelerated apprenticeship program which is one year. Military veterans who attend the program on the accelerated basis are eligible to utilize the GI Bill® to supplement their income as apprentices as well.

“We have seen a lot of growth here in the past few years, and it is a really exciting time to launch our newly registered apprenticeship program,” says Valerie Byers, recruiting manager for C&L Aviation Group. “We have a great group of employees here at C&L, and their ability to pass on their years of knowledge and experience to the next generation is an incredible advantage to those who will enter the program.”

C&L plans to hire and start the first class of six this April with an additional six in the fall. Apprentices will work full-time at the company’s 200,000-square-foot MRO facility located in Bangor, ME.
