October 27, 2015 – Roanoke, TX-headquartered Aviation Search Group, an aviation-focused executive search firm, has created a new service dubbed Air Medical Recruit, dedicated specifically to air medical operations to assist with the shortage of aviation personnel.
“With flight hours on the rise, we developed the Air Medical Recruit program to solve the hiring demand of air medical operators,” said Brad Stemmler, general manager. “This program compliments traditional recruiting and is a cost effective way to fill multiple positions.”
Nick Mihon, managing director of Aviation Search Group, said: “We’ve combined multiple networks that can notify air medical industry personnel immediately of company hiring needs. This coupled with traditional recruiting efforts has been successful for many of our air medical clients.”
Finding qualified aviation personnel is one of the largest challenges aviation companies will face over the next decade. Experts have predicted an aviation personnel shortage for years. In addition, a current and future lack of qualified aviation personnel requires aviation companies to come up with creative solutions in their search process for personnel.
Earlier this year, Aviation Search Group placed Jeff Denomme as president of Alpine Aerotech, a provider of comprehensive worldwide helicopter support and aircraft maintenance services. He previously held executive leadership roles with Canadian helicopter operators which included five years as president of Great Slave Helicopters and most recently vice president at Skyline Helicopters.
With over 30 years of combined aviation experience, Aviation Search Group’s team specializes placing executives and technical professionals exclusively in the aviation industry, and assists companies throughout the U.S, Canada, and Internationally.
