KLM UK Engineering (KLM UKE) has signed a long-term contract with Malaysia’s Kris Sakti Aviation to provide examiners for EASA Part 147 exams supported by its Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) software.
KLM UKE said providing the support will allow students to gain their EASA Part 66 B Licence, while helping Kris Sakti Aviation establish itself center of excellence for future aviation technicians. Currently more than 220 students graduate from the training program each year.
“Aviation engineers are highly trained professionals and with the support of KLM UKE we will provide training and develop individuals to become knowledgeable, skilled and competent,” said Dato' Sri Mahmud Taib, chairman of KS Holdings and KS Angkasamudra.
Peter Van Der Horst, managing director of KLM UKE, added: “The partnership with KS Angkasamudra is a huge step forward in our aim to connect KLM UKE's VLE products to many young engineers in the UK and abroad. The industry needs many good engineers for the future to accommodate the growing worldwide fleet and to replace inevitable retirements.”
