Monarch Aircraft Engineering doubles size of apprenticeship scheme for 2018

Independent MRO provider Monarch Aircraft Engineering (MAEL) has announced it will double its intake of apprentices in 2018.

First launched in 1971, MAEL’s renowned four-year Apprenticeship Scheme has already produced over 750 high calibre engineers for both the company and the wider aviation industry, and this year will double its intake from 20 to 40 apprentices.

The expansion of the Apprenticeship Scheme is an integral part of MAEL’s development as a leading, independent MRO provider following its establishment as a stand-alone business in October 2017.

Successful applicants will begin their training at MAEL’s Engineering Training Academy at London Luton Airport, before moving to one of MAEL’s bases for “On-the-Job” training in either aircraft mechanical or avionics systems.

Chris Dare, Managing Director at Monarch Aircraft Engineering, says: “Our people are our greatest asset and doubling the size of our Apprenticeship Scheme is an investment in our future as a leading, independent MRO provider.

“The skills and training that we impart to our apprentices represent a blend of many years’ experience with the latest thinking and innovation in aircraft engineering, and has become recognised as a benchmark for our industry.”

MAEL apprentices will study towards the EASA Part-66 ‘A’ basic licence category to ensure that they graduate with the technical expertise necessary to be an aircraft engineer.

All of the apprentices who took part in last year’s scheme were offered positions at MAEL’s aircraft maintenance facilities at London Luton, Birmingham and Gatwick airports following graduation.
