Airbus and SIA Engineering Company Limited (SIAEC) have entered into an agreement to provide maintenance and engineering training services for Airbus aircraft in Singapore. Through this collaboration, SIAEC will deploy Airbus standards, dynamic tools and teaching techniques to provide aircraft manufacturer backed maintenance training capabilities to its personnel and to third party personnel in the region.
Moreover, SIAEC Training Academy will be equipped with Airbus’ latest maintenance training devices and courseware for A320/A330, A380 and A350 aircraft types. This will enable SIAEC to deliver the highest standards of engineering training to third-party airline customers and SIAEC’s own technical personnel. As an Airbus Maintenance Training Centre, the Training Academy will also be able to undertake contractual training for Airbus’ customers.
William Tan, chief executive officer of SIAEC, said: “SIAEC has developed a bench strength of a thousand engineers licensed to handle the latest aircraft types. As a trusted partner to our customers, it is our aim to support them with total engineering solutions, including best-in-class training services. The appointment of SIAEC’s Training Academy as an Airbus Maintenance Training Centre further strengthens our comprehensive service offerings to airlines in the region.”
Didier Lux, head of Airbus Customer Services said: “We are delighted to extend our business relationship with SIAEC, and we look forward to contributing Airbus’ inherent training know-how for enhanced commercial aviation maintenance and engineering proficiency throughout the region.”
