Daher’s Aircraft Division has joined with the General Aviation Manufacturers Association (GAMA) to create an international internship program that engages and motivates promising future leaders of the general aviation sector.
This trans-Atlantic internship will provide two North American students with unique and exciting opportunities for hands-on industry experience, plus extensive contacts with workers, managers, pilots and aircraft operators.
The selected students will spend eight weeks at job assignments in their areas of interest at the headquarters and production facility of Daher’s Aircraft Division in Tarbes, France, followed by a week of supporting Daher’s presence during the annual EAA AirVenture fly-in and air show at Oshkosh, Wisconsin, USA.
Travel expenses and living allowances are covered by the internship.
Internship applicants should be 18 to 24 years of age, with U.S. or Canadian citizenship, and enrolled as a full-time student pursuing an associate, undergraduate or graduate degree.
They will need to demonstrate an interest in an aeronautical career for engineering, flying, maintenance, manufacturing or marketing – among other areas.
The selection will be based on three elements:
- A resume and a mandatory cover letter explaining why the applicant is the best candidate for the position, supported by examples of interests and achievements; and
- A 40-second video introducing the candidate and describing his/her expectations for the internship.
The final selections for this year’s internship will be announced by Daher and GAMA at the SUN ‘n FUN Aerospace Expo on March 28 in Lakeland, Florida.
