Aircraft arrives for student training

Thiruvananthapuram: In a first ever initiative, Maintenance Training Organization (MTO), under Air India Engineering Services Ltd (AIESL) has included an aircraft in airborne condition for its training programme. The Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA)-approved organization has arranged an Airbus A320 for practical training in aircraft maintenance engineering licence course .
The aircraft arrived in the city from New Delhi last week and is parked at AIESL hanger, Chackai. Pradeep Singh Karole, CMD Air India inaugurated the practical training on the aircraft in a function held on Sunday.

Established in August 2015 at PMG, MTO offers training in Boeing 737 and Airbus A320 type aircraft mandatory for aircraft maintenance course.
“Based on the DGCA-designed practical programme, the training is conducted in live aircraft and a request was given to allot an aircraft in airborne condition. The aircraft was in service for more than 20 years and it reached Thiruvananthapuram in its last leg of operation last week. As per the course, the check and training are conducted on a parked aircraft, so the aircraft need not fly,” said an official from the MTO.
