We’re offering three annual $5000 scholarships to help up-and-coming engineers achieve their Part 66 aircraft maintenance engineers’ (AME) licence.
The scholarships will be open to people who have worked for a minimum of two years in aviation and have started structured training towards a maintenance licence or who are doing on the job training.
Winning candidates will demonstrate a high level of engineering aptitude and a commitment to aviation safety, as well as having already made solid progress towards an aircraft maintenance licence.
The scholarship provides practical encouragement for people interested in a career in aviation maintenance and engineering.
This is important because high quality aircraft maintenance engineers are critical to a safe and vibrant aviation industry.
The scholarship will help meet costs associated with completing CASA theory exams or relevant costs incurred during apprenticeships and other training.
