The new jobs will be high-paying aircraft mechanic jobs, the company said. An additional 50 administrative and material specialist jobs will be open, in addition to the mechanics positions. FEAM will launch a nationwide recruitment campaign to fill the roles, furthering economic development in the local and surrounding communities, CVG said in a release.
