In an attempt to address the lack of maintenance technicians, a helicopter centre of excellence is to be created on the Aquitaine Aerocampus in partnership with Airbus Helicopters Training Services.
It aims to develop a training business for the helicopter sector and gain the EASA Part 147 B1-3 “aeronautic helicopter mechanic” basic license. AEROCAMPUS hopes to obtain this approval next January.
The presence of the expertise of Airbus Helicopters Training Services on the site should greatly help the Aquitaine Aerocampus, which is currently booming.
