PRESS RELEASE APRIL 30, 2019
Ascent Aviation Services is proud to announce its new partnership with LAUNCH Working Heroes. Working Heroes is a nationwide initiative to help veterans and transitioning service members find rewarding permanent career opportunities. With an industry wide shortage of aviation maintenance personnel, experienced veterans have become a valuable asset in augmenting the existing workforce. This partnership aligns the organizations to optimize their unique opportunities to provide experienced veterans a solid foundation to grow their career in an environment that helps them reach their full potential.
Dave Querio, President of Ascent Aviation Services, stated “We are honored to partner with LAUNCH on the Working Heroes program. Giving veterans who have proudly served an opportunity to utilize the skills and commitment they attained while serving is very important to the entire Ascent team.”
“Transitioning military members have historically had a more difficult time with the transition in to the civilian aviation industry,” stated Patrick Moran, Recruiting Team Manager of LAUNCH Technical Workforce Solutions. “Five years ago, we started a program that was geared towards bridging the gaps and finding great opportunities for veterans to use their military skills. We’re very excited to be partnering with Ascent to help our military members start their careers in aviation. We always look to connect with facilities that will make transitioning military members feel like they’ve found their new home. We feel very strongly that Ascent is exactly that type of place.”
