Piper Aircraft announced that it has opened the application period for the 2021 Apprenticeship Program. The 2021 group, which will begin in August, will be the third apprenticeship class to begin at Piper Aircraft’s world headquarters in Vero Beach, FL. The two-year program includes a combination of on-the-job training as well as classroom instruction 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.

The accredited apprenticeship program, which is conducted in cooperation with Indian River State College, began in August 2019 and was created in response to the increasing demand for high quality manufacturing candidates at Piper Aircraft. The first group of apprentices, which began in 2019, will graduate in the summer of 2021. The second class is currently completing their first semester of the program and are continuing to shadow skilled aircraft assembly workers and learn all aspects of fabrication and assembly of aircraft during the two-year initiative. 

Piper Aircraft will be hosting several informational sessions for prospective apprentices (parents / guardians and significant others welcome) at the Piper Aircraft factory in Vero Beach during the coming months. The sessions will include a brief presentation, the opportunity to meet with current apprentices as well as program coordinators. Additionally, guidance will be provided on the application process and timing. Please e-mail: [email protected] or visit Piper.com for available dates and details. 

The 2021 application can be found on the Piper website under the Careers tab: www.piper.com  For questions regarding the program, please e-mail: [email protected].
