Aviation Industry Soars in Miami

Miami’s natural growth as a popular international destination has allowed aviation and aerospace companies to grow to over 480 today in Miami. This is great news for industry-sector jobs and this development will benefit anyone looking to become a pilot, air-traffic controller, or aircraft dispatcher. This also resulted in an increase of average aviation industry salaries from $60,491 to $82,811.

Miami competes with other large cities for aviation business and the city offers many services in a single location. These services include overhaul and maintenance, distribution, and aviation and aerospace training. Sheffield School of Aeronautics, offers extensive and proper training programs for anyone looking to join the aviation industry. 

Not only is aviation growing in Miami, but it can be seen as a multi-billion-dollar industry in Broward County. Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport is Broward’s main hub and employs over 12,000 people. The rise in this industry is great news for all who are interested in starting a fulfilling career in aviation.

While jobs and salaries are increasing, the quality of flight training programs are expanding rapidly in these areas. The pilots who come here for exclusive training have a huge impact on the local economy. Both Fort Lauderdale and Miami want to keep this expansion growing and there is no doubt the aviation industry is here to stay.
