The General Aviation Manufacturers Association and Daher’s Aircraft Division are teaming up to offer a “one-of-a-kind” opportunity for students interested in general aviation.

“We are excited to partner with Daher, which builds two separate type certified turboprop aircraft in the U.S. and France, to offer this exciting opportunity for…students to learn about the general aviation industry in France,” said GAMA President and CEO Pete Bunce. “These internships provide students with an invaluable international experience that will further their knowledge of the incredible professional global opportunities in our robust industry.”

The two students will split their time between France and the United States, first spending eight weeks in job assignments at Daher’s headquarters and production facility in Tarbes, France. There they will have the opportunity to be exposed to a variety of aviation disciplines while also focusing on an area of interest. Following their time abroad, the students will spend a week supporting Daher at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh in Wisconsin in July.

To be eligible, students must be between the ages of 18 and 24, with U.S. or Canadian citizenship. Additionally, applicants must show an interest in an aeronautical career (acceptable interests include engineering, flying, maintenance, manufacturing, and marketing, among others) and be enrolled as a full-time student.

Application packets must include a 40-second video introduction along with a résumé and cover letter. Details about application guidelines and the submission link can be found here.

The deadline for application submission is March 20, and the two lucky students will be announced on March 28 at the Sun ’n Fun Aerospace Expo in Lakeland, Florida.
