Aviation Australia and JATC form a strategic training partnership in Indonesia

Aviation Australia has signed a cooperative partnership agreement with the Jakarta Aviation Training Center (JATC) for the delivery of aircraft maintenance engineering training to Indonesian students. Training will be delivered at JATC’s campus, located next to the Soekarno-Hatta International Airport in Jakarta, as well as Aviation Australia’s campus located next to the Brisbane International Airport.

Students will complete the first six months of their European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) approved basic training course (B1.1) in Jakarta, before transferring to Brisbane to complete the remaining 12 months. The Brisbane based training is inclusive of practical training and live aircraft maintenance training.

Successful students will graduate with a Diploma of Aircraft Maintenance Engineering and an EASA Part 66 Certificate of Recognition.

“Indonesia is a very important player in the global aviation industry and has experienced massive growth over the past decade,” stated Bill Horrocks, CEO of Aviation Australia.

“Our collaboration with JATC is a very important strategic partnership for our business and we look forward to working closely to develop world class engineers, trained to the very stringent EASA standard, to meet the ever growing needs of the Indonesian aviation industry. Our mission statement is ‘Delivering excellence in training to help shape the future of the aviation industry worldwide’ and this move into the Indonesian market ensures that we are delivering on this goal.”
