CEO of Aviation Job Search Ian Partington, said: “A number of jobs in the aviation industry have benefitted from a raise in salary over the last couple of years. We can see that the obvious demand presently for quality aviation engineers has had a direct impact on the average salary being offered for this category, in an attempt to attract top talent.

“Despite Pilots being in demand, the average salary being offered for the role by recruiters has dropped by 2.32%.”

“The average salary for Fabricators has seen a drastic increase from 2016-17 by 35.76%.”

‘We are a small family owned and run business that the introduction of new measures by BF would have caused severe financial hardship.  I was recommended to ask BBGA for advice which they instantly gave even though we were not members.  They attended various meetings by my side, took the situation to a higher level within the Government department and helped me achieve a satisfactory outcome.  I wasn’t pressured to become a member but what became apparent was their genuine desire to help resolve aviation issues for the better of the community.  This association covers almost every aspect of the industry, has representation on the majority of decision making panels and achieves results by either diluting possible harmful legislation or stopping it altogether.  Its members receive updates in real time often leaving other associations to ‘cut and paste’ BBGA releases some time later.’
