Piper Aircraft announced its second group of apprentices has begun their two-year training program. The apprentices recently made their first step towards a career in manufacturing by attending their program orientation at Piper's global headquarters in Vero Beach, FL. The group of ten start work this week, will shadow skilled aircraft assembly workers and learn all aspects of fabrication and assembly of aircraft during the two-year initiative. Additionally, they will attend technical classes and receive hands-on training designed to qualify the participants as a Journeyman in Aircraft Assembly. Each apprentice is a paid employee of Piper Aircraft and receives a full benefits package.

"Our newest class of Piper apprentices is part of a fantastic opportunity to gain technical skills in manufacturing while developing important cross functional knowledge and key leadership skills," said President and CEO, Simon Caldecott."Once the apprenticeship is complete there will be ongoing professional development to successfully pursue a long-term career with growth opportunity as a Piper employee."

The application period for the 2021 Apprentice Class will open in fall of 2020. The application will be available on the Piper website: www.piper.com under the Careers tab.
