3 Points Aviation, Charlottetown
Jobs: CNC Machinists with five to 10 years of experience and Repair & Overhaul Technicians with five years of experience.
3 Points Aviation is a Transport Canada approved facility which manufactures, repairs, and overhauls aircraft parts. It also has a research and development arm which designs and produces prototype parts.
“CNC Machinists need the two-year CNC Machinist program,” says Dianne Griffin. “Students take their first year at Holland College and then go to New Brunswick Community College in Moncton for the second year.
“Repair and Overhaul Technicians must have experience working on airplanes.
“Employees must be willing to alternate between day and night shifts every three months. We really need people who have a great attitude who can come up with ways to do things faster and better so that we can get great-quality parts out faster.”
3 Points Aviation manufactures, repairs, and overhauls airplane parts. The facility on PEI has been in operation for six years. The company’s departments include manufacturing, programming, HR, front office and administration, quality control, shipping, sales, repair & overhaul, and research & development.
“We are looking for people with previous experience in the aerospace industry with a minimum of five years of experience in repair & overhaul,” says Dianne Griffin. “In the IT department, we are looking to hire an End-User Technician.”
At the moment, 3 Points is focused on acquiring more CNC Programmers and CNC Machinists. “Holland College currently offers a one-year Machinist program, and graduates can go on to a second year at New Brunswick Community College to become a CNC Machinist.”
“We recently hired someone who in his country was an expert in metrology in a sector similar to Aerospace. One of our requirements before making a job offer is to ask the applicant to do a skills test and prove themselves.
“This particular employee passed his skill test and was hired as an entry-level Technician with the opportunity to move up.”
