Aviation Support Takes Flight in NKY
Aviation Maintenance Support Services in Northern Kentucky
Aviation maintenance and support services involve the maintenance, repair & overhaul (MRO) of aircraft. Specific services include engine maintenance, non-engine maintenance, comprehensive airframe maintenance, and line maintenance. Among these services, line maintenance is most typically performed at hub airports. As a result, local growth in aviation support services typically reflects broader air passenger or cargo activity.
There are 22 four-year colleges/universities and 11 community and technical colleges located within a 75-mile commute of Northern Kentucky. Business leaders cite the talent –dedication, education, and training combined with a willingness to learn– as a major asset for NKY. SmartAsset named the Cincinnati region as the #1 city for new college grads in 2022, the fourth year in the top spot. The talent pipeline features over 6,000 engineering graduates per year within 100 miles and rapidly growing manufacturing technician programs at Gateway Community & Technical College.
“We have accomplished great success through our partnership with CVG and the public support from the state of Kentucky. We look forward to growing our local economic impact by creating meaningful careers within the region and bringing our best-in-class standards of quality and safety to the already thriving cargo ecosystem at CVG.”
