Aircraft Structures Technician

Industry policies


You may wish to consider some aspects of the Aerospace industry before choosing your career and begin training.

  • Most aviation-related companies have regular drug and alcohol screening, and it may be necessary to pass such a test in order to secure employment.
  • Many aviation-related companies will require a background check, particularly if the company is located at an airport.
  • Attendance is monitored throughout the program, and your attendance records will be required and carefully scrutinized by prospective employers.
  • Applicants must be in good physical condition and not be afraid of heights.


KF Aerospace continues aggressive expansion plans in Kelowna and Hamilton, welcoming nearly 150 new employees over the last 7 months as the company hires to grow the Kelowna operation to about 675 permanent full time staff capable of maintaining 11 narrow body aircraft in heavy maintenance or modifications simultaneously.

KF has hired many UFV graduates, and is looking for more Structures Diploma graduates over the next 12-18 months.

Our primary hiring challenge is Structures Technicians and Apprentices. KF is forecasting to be short nearly 40 Structures staff between YHM and YLW until mid-2018 when the next Aircraft Structures classes graduate.

It is without hesitation that KF recommends graduation from UFV's Aircraft Structures program, as the supply of Structures apprentices is far below the demand in Canada for the foreseeable future.
