CAE Parc Aviation is to expand its workforce in Shannon and Dublin by a total of 80. The jobs will include recruitment consultants to service the needs of airlines for pilots and aviation engineers in the global aircraft leasing industry.
Minister for Employment and Small Business Pat Breen described the news as “a vote of confidence in the economy of Clare and the Mid-West”.
“I would like to congratulate CAE Parc Aviation on its success to date and its foresight in seeing the potential of Shannon Airport.
“As the global aviation industry continues to grow, Shannon Airport is well placed to take every advantage of the opportunities presented by such growth,” he said.
Over the next 20 years, the aviation industry will need to supply more than one million new aviation personnel. The total civil aerospace expenditure is estimated to be worth $5.6 trillion by 2032 and the world’s airlines will need 38,000 new planes to cater for this demand – as well as the crews to operate them.
