In October 2016 Calum and Lois embarked upon their EASA Part 66 Approved Basic Training course and both studied towards the EASA Part 66 B1.1 Licence. At the end of the course this included an 8 Week Industry Placement which was arranged by Air Service Training and both Calum and Lois were seconded to British Airways Maintenance Glasgow.
We are extremely proud of both students who have now completed their two year Approved Training and have impressed so much during their 8 Week placement they were offered employment within British Airways.
Below is a testimonial provided by Calum.
The Part 66 Approved Course provided by Air Service Training is undoubtedly the best way to get a head start in your career in Aircraft Maintenance and has without a doubt been a huge factor in my employment at British Airways. After completing the theory and practical aspects of the course, AST organised On The Job Training with British Airways Maintenance Glasgow which not only gave me an insight in to working at a Part 145 organisation, but also gave me an opportunity to really take advantage of everything I had studied and worked for throughout the course and upon demonstrating my capabilities learned throughout the course, I was asked if I could start working immediately! The course is superbly structured from the basics right up to the advanced end of the spectrum of modules. All modules are well written and easy to understand, and are also constantly being revised and improved, feedback is always encouraged and AST take everything into consideration to provide you the best possible experience. The staff at Air Service Training are a credit to the course, all are willing to take time out of their busy teaching schedules to give you a hand and they genuinely want you to succeed! They all have a passion for aviation and this quality is shown through their knowledge and experience which they are more than happy to share with students. The facilities are second to none with multiple Aircraft and top class tooling and equipment, allowing you to learn and perfect, hand skills and standard practices that are extremely valuable and expected in the aviation maintenance industry.
