Czech Airlines Technics (CSAT) and the faculty of transportation sciences of the Czech Technical University in Prague have signed a memorandum of co-operation in aviation.
The organizations are to work together on projects, share professional knowledge and promote the interconnection between the academic field and practice.
Share areas of interest will include the evaluation of operational reliability and safety in the field of aircraft maintenance safety, among others.
As part of the arrangement, CSAT will also provide the university with decommissioned or damaged aircraft parts to be used by students during lectures to look for ways to identify particular defects.
A statement released last week by the MRO said that students will get the opportunity to join a long-term vocational training program run on CSAT premises.
According to Pavel Haleš, chairman of the CSAT’s Board of Directors, starting the co-operation with the university was a logical step due to the company’s desire to attract students into the field of aircraft maintenance and operations.
