According to the FAA Aviation Mechanics and Avionics technicians are at an all-time need. The future of space and aviation is based on electronic flight instruments and GPS based navigation. Satellites now provide a complete GPS coverage of navigational aid to aircraft. The ADS-B mandate of 2021 provided the guidelines for all aircraft to be equipped with mode S transponders to provide position to other aircraft.

The need for trained avionics aviation technicians will continue to increase, as all aircraft will need to be updated with modern avionics. Garmin Aviation, Avidyne Avionics, L3, Stratus and many other manufactures are produced better, safer and more cost effective equipment for general aviation, business jet and commercial airlines to upgrade legacy and analog systems.
