Skills

Data on the critical and distinctive skills necessary for those working in the Airframe Mechanics & Aircraft Maintenance Technology field from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Airframe Mechanics & Aircraft Maintenance Technology majors need many skills, but most especially Quality Control Analysis. The revealed comparative advantage (RCA) shows that Airframe Mechanics & Aircraft Maintenance Technology majors need more than the average amount of Equipment Maintenance, Installation, and Repairing.

These two visualizations, one a radial chart and one a bar chart, show the same information, a rating of how necessary the following skills are for Airframe Mechanics & Aircraft Maintenance Technology majors. Toggle between "value" and "RCA" to see the absolute rating of that skill (value) and the revealed comparative advantage (RCA), or how much greater or lesser that skill's rating is than the average. The longer the bar or the closer the line comes to the circumference of the circle, the more important that skill is. The importance of Equipment Maintenance is very distinctive for majors, but the Quality Control Analysis, Operation Monitoring, and Troubleshooting are the three most important skills for people in the field.
