Monarch Aircraft Engineering will launch a number of training services for Middle Eastern airline technicians on the Airbus A320neo and the Boeing 737 MAX.
The CAR 147-approved courses were announced today (February 8) by the UK-based maintenance provider and will be conducted by the Monarch Aircraft Engineering Training Academy from both its Luton headquarters and on site if requested by an airline customer.
Through its training academy, Monarch already runs other courses approved by the UAE General Civil Aviation Authority for Boeing 787, Boeing 737NG and Airbus A320 aircraft and counts an unnamed Dubai carrier and Air Arabia as existing Middle East customers.
Chris Dare, managing director of Monarch Aircraft Engineering, said: “With over 400 MAX and Neo aircraft on order from airlines across the region, we believe there is considerable potential for future growth in the Middle East."
While early customers have yet to be confirmed, Dare added that the courses have already garnered “considerable interest” from prospective carriers.
