I chose to work in a trade because I like to put things together and work hands on. I chose aerospace technology because I’ve always had an interest in aviation. I would like to obtain my full aircraft maintenance engineer licence and get type certified on a variety of aircrafts to learn more about the different styles of aircrafts.

I got involved in skills competitions when our school took us on a trip to the Stars air ambulance base in my hometown. One of the AME’s and Skills Canada Alumni, Ryan Gillis, spoke to us about Skills/Compétences Canada, where it can take you and what is involved, and it caught my interest.

Essential Skills

Reading text is probably the most important skill during the competitions because almost everything in the aviation world comes from a manual that you need to be able to read and understand, then apply. I think that continuous learning is also something that everyone should focus on, especially in my trade, because it is impossible to know everything about aviation, so you are constantly learning.
