now hiring lead A&P Mechanic (with IA)
Are you an experienced A&P aircraft mechanic with experience working on piston aircraft? Do you long for the opportunity to have a key leadership role in a rapidly growing company where your knowledge and experience can make an immediate impact?
If you answered yes to these questions, we should talk! We’re looking for skilled A&P Aircraft Mechanic to join the Performance team! Our Part 141 Pilot Academy is growing rapidly, and we need someone who can manage all aspects of aircraft maintenance and help us keep our fleet of Cirrus, Cessna, and Piper training aircraft well-maintained. You will assist with supervision and training for additional maintenance personnel. This is your opportunity to join a hard-working, fun-loving team in aviation whose collective mission is whole-life impact.
As our Lead A&P Aircraft Mechanic, you will also work closely with company leadership and our flight training team to shape the Performance Aircraft culture and promote our people-focused vision “where the rubber hits the road.” (Or should we say, where the tires hit the tarmac?)
What are we looking for?
- Candidates must have a valid and active A&P certificate with your IA.
- A minimum of 5 years of maintaining piston aircraft.
- Strong organizational, analytical, and problem-solving skills. If you can get your ducks in a row, keep your fingers on the pulse, go over things with a fine-toothed comb, and kill two birds with one stone, all without letting the grass grow beneath your feet, we should definitely talk.
- No drama. We fiercely protect our collaborative, mission-focused team culture. If you can’t help passing along whatever gossipy tidbit you just heard through the grapevine, please don’t apply!
- Bonus for leadership skills and experience.
