Singapore / February 13, 2014 – Jet Aviation Singapore announced a strategic alliance with Air Transport Training College (ATTC) at Seletar Aerospace Park in October 2013 to jointly offer a Licensed Aircraft Engineer Training Program for Business Aviation. To further facilitate practical training options through the college, the company recently transferred ownership of a Falcon 20 aircraft to the ATTC.
Jet Aviation Singapore and the ATTC began offering a joint Licensed Aircraft Engineer Training Program for business aviation to develop a competitive pool of local licensed aircraft engineers and related professionals for the business aviation network at Seletar Aerospace Park. Under the agreement, Jet Aviation is to provide required on-the-job training opportunities to students enrolled in the SAR 66 Cat B1.1 course offered at the ATTC.
Jet Aviation Singapore acquired a Falcon 20 aircraft through an auction last year and, in the spirit of its
cooperation with the ATTC, recently transferred the aircraft to the college to help students develop technical
know-how with minimal risk.
“Practical training is an essential component of aviation engineering through which students are offered aircraft
training platforms in a safe environment to apply and practice their theoretical training,” said Liu Wing Tim,
managing director at ATTC. “This Falcon 20 aircraft is a significant contribution towards our continual
improvement efforts to offer high quality training. It represents a real win-win outcome for all involved.”
In a recent interview with Singapore-based AeroCareer Guide (2014/2015), Mohammed Fadhil Bin Ahmad
Faizal, a pioneer Trainee Aircraft Maintenance Engineer at Jet Aviation Singapore who completed the
Foundation Degree in Aircraft Engineering with the ATTC last fall, emphasizes the importance of acquiring as
much supervised practical experience as possible. Currently benefitting from on-the-job training under the joint
Licensed Aircraft Engineer program, Fadhil has already gained hands-on experience with Gulfstream G300,
G400 and G450 aircraft types under Jet Aviation Singapore’s mentorship.
“With our new hangar facility at Seletar Aerospace Park nearing completion, we have a vested interest in
developing a highly skilled pool of local talent to support our business aviation customers in the region,” said
Gary Dolski, vice president and general manager of Jet Aviation Singapore. “We are committed to the highest
business aviation standards, which we are best able to ensure by selecting, training and retraining qualified
engineers. Our partnership with the ATTC is already proving mutually beneficial and we look forward to a long
and fruitful cooperation.”
ATTC is fully accredited by the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) as a Maintenance Training Organization and is also ISO9001:2008 quality certified. As a National Continuing Education and Training Centre Institute (NCI) appointed by the Singapore Workforce Development Agency (WDA), the ATTC is committed to providing responsible and creditable aerospace training and education. As a testament to its continual efforts, ATTC has been awarded the 4-year EduTrust Certification by CPE with effect from 28 December 2011. The College is exhibiting at the Singapore Airshow from February 11 through February 16, 2014. Please visit the ATTC booth (#B12).
