SR Technics opens new training centre in Abu Dhabi

Posted 17 November 2016 · Add Comment

SR Technics has opened a new training centre in Masdar City, Abu Dhabi offering flexible, comprehensive training solutions to supplement the company's existing training facilities in Zurich, Switzerland.

Since 2008 SR Technics has provided the employees of various regional airlines in the Middle East with basic maintenance training and type rating training, both of which help to obtain a valid Aircraft Maintenance License (AML) and to release aircraft back into service. The new modern training centre is designed to serve regional and international clients, strengthening the existing relationships and building new ones. 

Stephan Wiegelmann, head of training services at SR Technics, said: “We were looking for a state-of-the-art facility, which we found in Masdar City. We chose this location because it is a progressive hub for educational, technical and scientific institutions, providing a modern environment for learning. Masdar City is also close to the Abu Dhabi Airport, so we are able to perform practical training on aircraft. The new training center is designed to offer high quality technical training in an inspiring learning environment.”

“Masdar City is the region’s first clean-tech cluster anchored by a world-class graduate university, hosting a range of corporate training, research and knowledge-sharing opportunities,” said Yousef Baselaib, executive director of sustainable real estate at Masdar, Abu Dhabi’s renewable energy company. “The expansion of SR Technics’ presence at Masdar City will provide important services to Abu Dhabi’s growing aviation sector, and enhance the City’s standing as a hub connecting education with R&D and business with investment.”

Ralph Kaeding, who was recently appointed head of the Abu Dhabi training centre added: “Our experienced training team is fully committed to providing the quality training, with the flexibility to choose from scheduled courses as well as customised solutions. Our courses are short and efficient to minimise the off-duty time, optimising the learning experience.”

The new Abu Dhabi training centre offers vocational training, basic maintenance training, aircraft type training, specialised training and training consultancy services. All training courses are based on Part-147, Part-66 and Part-145 related maintenance training that are approved by the relevant authorities, such as EASA, GCAA and CASA.
