Infowerk issue industry paper on future technician training
Zirl, Innsbruck, Austria, 30th June – 1st July 2011
A group of maintenance and training experts met at Infowerk’s Innsbruck facility in Austria to discuss the skills required for future aircraft maintenance technicians.
The group agreed that the importance of human factors aspects in aircraft maintenance will increase and that other skills such as information management and situation awareness may outpace the purely technical skills.
The interesting “industry Green Paper”, which may be downloaded here, intends to launch a wider discussion which should lead to general industry recommendations and proposals to drive regulatory changes.
