A company has invested in refurbishing its state-of-the-art training centre in a bid to cement its position as a world leader in its field.
Independent aircraft maintenance provider Monarch Aircraft Engineering (MAEL), based at Luton Airport, recently opened its new training academy (MAETA).
The training academy has undergone a refurbishment providing several new theatre style classrooms and facilities for composite and fibre optic training, a technology that is being employed on next generation aircraft.
MAEL has been training aircraft engineers for the past four decades, including apprentices in high calibre engineering. In 2012 the academy enrolled its 700th apprentice.
Iain Rawlinson, executive chairman of The Monarch Group, said: “The academy provides superb opportunities for training engineers from MAEL and the global aviation industry in a high-quality environment, and ensures that The Monarch Group remains at the leading edge of aircraft industry innovation.”
