HAGERSTOWN, Md. (AP) - The operator of an airplane mechanic school in Hagerstown says job-fair registration numbers indicate strong demand for aviation industry workers.

The Pittsburgh Institute of Aeronautics is playing host to the job fair Wednesday at its campus near Hagerstown Regional Airport.

Campus Director Butch Adams says in a statement that the event has attracted more employers than available students for hire. He says that’s a strong indicator of career trends for the region.

Adams says participants in the event include Naval Air Systems Command, United Airlines, Piedmont Airlines, Air Wisconsin, Westinghouse Electric Company and GE Aviation.
