Magnetic MRO Training, EASA Part-147 approved type training organization, has announced the re-opening of their training facility after the most recent expansion. The new premises were opened on Thursday, 19th September 2019 and are aimed to be used mainly by Magnetic MRO and Estonian Aviation Academy for theoretical technical training for future aircraft mechanics.
“The need for expansion came from demand to organize more type training and internal training as well as supports better overall organization of training. Department has grown very quickly and very significantly over the last couple of years so the expansion was the natural step ahead for us,” shared Haldi Vanatoa, Head of Training Unit at Magnetic MRO Training.
The recent expansion results in almost 50% capacity increase in Tallinn for theoretical type training programs. As type training are lengthy and on average takes between 1,5-2 months, own facility not only helps to accommodate the growing needs of professionals in the industry but also allows to create comfortable training centre which meets the needs of both instructors and trainees.
“We like to keep a homelike-feeling within our training centre because a lot of trainees travel to Estonia only for the training, spending most of the time at the facility. Therefore welcoming and comfortable premises are one of our key goals alongside the maitaining the highest training standards and quality,” ads Ms. Vanatoa.
Airbus A320, Boeing 737 Classic/Next Generation and Bombardier CRJ700/900/1000 Type Training and other internal company training as well as Estonian Aviation Academy A-category apprenticeship basic training are currently conducted at the facility. By 2020, additional 4 aircraft type training are planned to be added to the portfolio, adding to the growth of the Training Unit.
