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 Installation, Equipment Maintenance, Repairing, Equipment Selection, Troubleshooting, Quality Control Analysis, Operation and Control, Operation Monitoring, Technology Design, Systems Analysis, Mathematics, Time Management, Instructing, Systems Evaluation, Management of Material Resources, Monitoring, Learning Strategies, Coordination, Judgment and Decision Making, Complex Problem Solving, Active Learning, Programming, Active Listening, Critical Thinking, Management of Financial Resources, Management of Personnel Resources, Speaking, Writing, Service Orientation, Reading Comprehension, Negotiation, Science, Persuasion, Social Perceptiveness, and Operations Analysis.
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 Installation is very distinctive for majors, but the Quality Control Analysis, Active Listening, Critical Thinking, Monitoring, Reading Comprehension, Speaking, Equipment Maintenance, Judgment and Decision Making, Time Management, Repairing, Active Learning, Complex Problem Solving, Installation, Operation Monitoring, Coordination, Instructing, Equipment Selection, Operation and Control, Troubleshooting, Systems Analysis, Writing, Learning Strategies, Systems Evaluation, Mathematics, Social Perceptiveness, Service Orientation, Management of Personnel Resources, Persuasion, Negotiation, Technology Design, Management of Material Resources, Management of Financial Resources, Science, Operations Analysis, and Programming are the three most important skills for people in the field.
