After joining the business aviation industry in 2018, it was obvious to me that this is a sector made for people with a real passion for what they do. Business aviation is made of solution seekers and problem solvers who can think on their feet. Because of the changing nature of the world and the industry, these kinds of people are crucial for future success.
As the industry evolves through mobility and digital advancements and innovations, it becomes an even more attractive option for young job-seekers in a multitude of areas – whether that’s operations, marketing, purchasing or the technical departments – to put into practice what they’ve studied or learned on the job to provide new approaches to benefit the industry. As a young professional and content creator, it is important to get input from my peers on how to best represent our companies and get the latest trends and news to all audiences.
Why should young people join the business aviation industry? On the side of companies, it’s because we are the managers of the future, and our fresh managerial approach will give focus to equal treatment and sustainability issues directly in the workplace.
For young people, business aviation is suited to us because of how we’ve learned and how we work. We learn fast; after only one season, we can solve problems and work independently. As the ‘startup generation’, we can bring agility in the workplace on newer topics like digitalization, content creation and social media, and processes.
When it comes down to it, business aviation is the symbol of a well-functioning network of connected people who share the same love for aviation and want to play a significant role in reshaping the future of mobility.
