KF Aerospace is opening its hangar doors for a Career Fair on Thursday, July 7th. You’re invited for an exclusive inside look at a variety of career opportunities with KF’s world-leading aviation services.

The open-house event will showcase both skilled trades and entry-level roles including aircraft interior technician, hangar support, customer service and materials coordinator. Human Resources Manager, Susan van Unen says applicants of all backgrounds are welcome. “For our entry level roles, we provide on-the-job training that allows you to work towards a nationally recognized certification,” she says. “If you have a great attitude and are ready to learn and grow with us, we’d love to meet you.”

Okanagan College will be available to introduce prospective students to the Aircraft Maintenance Engineer (AME) training programs. Guests can also join guided tours of the facility and meet with KF staff to learn about other professional avenues including aerospace engineering, logistics, supply chain, administration and IT.

The company expects to fill over 100 jobs by 2023 to support growing demand for its aircraft maintenance and modification services, says Chief Corporate Services Officer, Grant Stevens. “We are increasing both staffing and hangar space to accommodate our upcoming passenger to freighter conversion program for Boeing and our aircraft leasing division,” he says. Facility expansion projects will add 40,000 sq feet to KF’s Kelowna base this year. An onsite café recently opened, and a YMCA daycare facility for the YLW Airport Campus is also scheduled to open in 2023, with dedicated spaces for KF families.
