Becoming an Engineer
A career as a licensed aircraft engineer offers excellent job security and the opportunity to live and work almost anywhere in the world. There is not yet a formal nationally recognised licensed engineer training scheme but some larger helicopter operating companies may run apprenticeship schemes from time to time. These schemes vary in nature but all are designed to produce a fully qualified engineer through a process of on the job training and external course work.
