If you do a Google Search for “UAV Aircraft Mechanic”, look what you’ll find- a lot of jobs and opportunities. One company, BOSH Global Services, has numerous listings for A&P’s with UAV experience. And that’s just one company. In addition to new demands within the aerospace sector, the public sector is now beginning to leverage UAV technology throughout the country as law enforcement and Homeland Security build up their UAV capabilities.
As the FAA begins to take input from the public on the regulation of UAV use, you will certainly see the demand for A&P’s and UAV technicians rise. Once the FAA rulings are in place, demand will most certainly surge.
Aviation Schools Online has a comprehensive listing of both A&P (Airframe and Powerplant) schools as well as UAV schools.
