AAR Aircraft Services is holding a Martin Luther King Day of Service job fair on January 21 from noon to 6 p.m. at its Indianapolis maintenance center. The company has 70 job openings for aircraft and avionics technicians, including 20 positions for lead technicians, supervisors and inspectors. AAR is also hiring for positions at facilities in Duluth, Minn.; Miami; Oklahoma City, Okla.; and Hot Springs, Ark.
The Australian Business Aviation Association (ABAA) has asked the Australian government to begin treating business aircraft with the same sort of priority as airliners by allowing them to take part in the airport slot system currently in place at Sydney. The current airline slot system restricting both domestic and international business aviation is expected to take effect soon at both Brisbane and Perth.
