With over 36 locations across the United States and 20 locations overseas, FEAM Aero is dedicated to excellence.

To address the AMT shortage, FEAM Aero has formed a strategic partnership with Epic Flight Academy at CVG.

By joining forces, Epic and FEAM Aero aim to eliminate the scarcity of talented technicians.

One key factor in FEAM Aero’s success is the unwavering dedication of its recruitment team. They tirelessly visit schools nationwide, spreading the word about the exceptional opportunities FEAM Aero offers. Additionally, the team emphasizes the organization’s commitment to training and career advancement, nurturing individuals to become proficient in working on large jets—a crucial aspect of the industry.

Consequently, FEAM Aero identifies promising individuals who can develop into skilled technicians and refers them to partnering schools, creating a cycle of growth and collaboration.

The benefits FEAM Aero offer are a major draw for prospective employees.
