I'm interested in taking a summer job, and would like one in the aviation field (i.e. somewhere close to the airport, KOAK preferably) i am totally lost as where to start looking, so i figured, y not start here? everyone here is great and has ideas so i figured this to be the best place.

I'm sure that you can find a job at airport services. Sadly, I believe that you have to be 18 years old to get hired by the airlines, but if you have a work permit, i'm sure you can get a job at airport services.

I'm 14 too. I can't even find a job at my local airport. Besides that we are too young to work at the airport because there is not a single job we can do there besides if you don't mind, washing the toilets!!! HAHA Juz Jokin.

I got a job at the pilot supply store when I was 16, which was really cool. I was able to meet many pilots, took tours of many aircraft get invited on trips ect. You will need a fair amount of aviation experience to work in the shop (more flying, then knowing the difference between the 747-200 and 747 SP) and you probably need to be a bit more mature then your average teenager, as most of the people you deal with are older wealthy people, who expect the same quality of service as they get at Neiman Marcus or Rolls Royce. But if you can land the job it is tremdenous fun, and a great way to get into aviation!

hey, i really appreciate the help, that's a great idea, yeah i've already got a standing offer from a business i helped at over last summer, and i would consider myself a little more mature, or at least conduct my self that way, but u said flying, i have never actually piloted a plane is that what u mean?
