Swiss MRO SR Technics has opened a new maintenance training center in Abu Dhabi to provide services for regional and international customers.
Located in the Masdar City cluster, the facility will offer a number of training services including vocational training, basic maintenance training, aircraft type training, specialized training and consultancy services.
All available courses are based on Part-147, Part-66 and Part-145 related maintenance training with approvals by authorities including EASA, GCAA and CASA.
The Abu Dhabi center adds to an existing facility in Zurich, where it has carried out basic maintenance and type rating training for Middle Eastern customers since 2008.
Stephan Wiegelmann, head of training services at SR Technics, said the firm chose the Masdar City area due to its close proximity to Abu Dhabi Airport - allowing it to perform practical aircraft training.
“The new training center is designed to offer high quality technical training in an inspiring learning environment,” said Wiegelmann.
Operations at the center will be led by Ralph Kaeding, recently appointed head of the Abu Dhabi training center, who added: “Our courses are short and efficient to minimize the off-duty time, optimizing the learning experience.”
