Learn to become a multi-skilled Aircraft Engineer with our fast-paced airline,

What do our Engineers do? Aircraft Maintenance Fitters/Technicians work on our fleet of aircraft to make sure they’re maintained to the highest standard. They carry out approved processes to maintain the airworthiness of the aircraft. It involves highly skilled, complex and specialist work, maintaining aircraft systems according to approved requirements and work instructions, using relevant hand tools and equipment. They must also comply with civil regulatory and organisational requirements.


Over four years, you’ll do a combination of classroom training (with exams), hand skills – using tools, and practical experience – shadowing and performing maintenance tasks on our aircraft. Alongside the knowledge and technical skills you get, we’ll make sure you also develop the attitude and behaviour that’s essential to the safe operation of our aircraft.
