Instructor Career Overview

Airline - Non-Flying - Instructor

The airlines' excellent safety record is largely because of the first-rate training they provide. To keep up the proficiency of flight crews and ground personnel who have direct contact with the airplanes, powerplants, and flight techniques, the airlines employ several thousand people.

Position Description

Even though the airlines are in business to transport people from one place to another, they could not function without the help of many people on the ground, including those who take reservations and sell tickets, as well as those who help keep the airplanes operating and on schedule.

Working Conditions

Typical training jobs are ground school instructor, flight attendant instructor, and flight simulator/duplicator operator. The instructors direct the pre-service and in-service training programs of the airline. Educators are also employed as curriculum/program developers.

An important factor in maintaining the airlines' excellent safety record is their training effort. Several thousand people are employed to maintain the proficiency of flight crews and ground personnel engaged in direct contact with the airplane, powerplants, and flight techniques. Instructors direct the pre-service and in-service training programs of the airline. For example, they make certain that the pilots keep up their instrument flying proficiency. The use of flight simulators and other ground training devices is supervised by an instructor. Educators are also employed as curriculum and program developers. Technical support is provided by craft workers who develop training aids for use by the instructors in the airlines' classrooms.

Typical Requirements and/or Experience

Instructors can qualify, in some instances, on the basis of two years of airline employment, plus supervised teaching experience in a specialty. Those who instruct by means of a ground training device are required to understand how to maintain and repair that device. Familiarity and experience with electronic equipment are helpful.

Applicants should have the ability to develop curriculums and lessons subject to FAA approval. Interpersonal skills are essential and instructors must have the ability to effectively communicate technical subject matter.

Education

The required education varies greatly depending on the nature of the instructor position.

Marital Status

Married and unmarried men and women, with or without children are eligible. Persons who are widowed or divorced, also are eligible.

It is the policy of most aviation companies to provide equal employment opportunity to all individuals regardless of their race, creed, color, religion, sex, age, national origin, disability, military and veteran status, sexual orientation, marital status, or any other characteristic protected by state or federal law. Most aviation companies are strongly committed to this policy, and believe in the concept and spirit of the United States law.

Most aviation companies are committed to assuring that:

All recruiting, hiring, training, promotion, compensation, and other employment related programs are provided fairly to all persons on an equal opportunity basis without regard to race, creed, color, religion, sex, age, national origin, disability, military and veteran status, sexual orientation, marital status or any other characteristic protected by law;

Employment decisions are based on the principles of equal opportunity and affirmative action;

All personnel actions such as compensation, benefits, transfers, training, and participation in social and recreational programs are administered without regard to race, creed, color, sex, age, national origin, disability, military and veteran status, sexual orientation, marital status or any other characteristic protected by law, and;

Employees and applicants will not be subjected to harassment, intimidation, threats, coercion or discrimination because they have exercised any right protected by law.

Most aviation companies believe in and practice equal opportunity and affirmative action. All employees are responsible for supporting the concept of equal opportunity and affirmative action and assisting the company in meeting its objectives.

Most aviation companies maintain Affirmative Action Plans for minorities, women, disabled persons and veterans.

EEOC has jurisdiction of the prohibitions against employment discrimination codified in Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Equal Pay Act of 1963, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967, Sections 501 and 505 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, Titles I and V of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 and the Civil Rights Act of 1991. These laws prohibit discrimination based on race, color, sex, religion, national origin, age and disability.

The Office of Special Counsel (OSC) and the Merit Systems Protection Board (MSPB) enforce the prohibitions against federal employment discrimination codified in the CSRA. The OSC will defer those bases of discrimination under EEOC's jurisdiction to the respective federal agency and its EEO process. The CSRA also prohibits employment discrimination in the federal government based on marital status, political affiliation and conduct which does not adversely affect the performance of the employee, none of which are within EEOC's jurisdiction. Moreover, the law defines ten other prohibited personnel practices in the federal government, all of which fall under the jurisdiction of the OSC and the MSPB. See Prohibited Personnel Practices at http://www.osc.gov/ppp.htm.

Additional information may also be found on the the EEOC web site located at http://www.eeoc.gov/
