D328eco maker steps up vocational training for engineers
Deutsche Aircraft and Aero-Bildung team up to develop a training programme, where students will learn the ins and outs of aircraft mechanics and will test their newly acquired knowledge on state-of-the-art aircraft.
"Investing in young generations is investing in the future." says Robert Voit, Aero-Bildung founder.

Deutsche Aircraft, the new German aircraft original equipment manufacturer for the D328eco aircraft programme, and Aero-Bildung, the aviation training centre of Bavaria, have signed a cooperation agreement to jointly train future aviation mechanics.

This is the first time that Deutsche Aircraft is offering vocational training. It is part of an integrated recruitment strategy that supports the growth and ambition of the company.

During a 42-month period, trainees will learn the basics of the work as aircraft mechanics at the Aero-Bildung facilities and will test their newly acquired knowledge on state-of-the-art aircraft at Deutsche Aircraft's Oberpfaffenhofen facility near Munich.

Upon graduation, outstanding trainees will have the opportunity to start their career within Deutsche Aircraft, either at Oberpfaffenhofen or at its final assembly line in Leipzig.

“The start of this vocational training programme is part of a long-term growth strategy for Deutsche Aircraft. It also supports our regional strategy as it will help strengthen the connection between our two German sites in Oberpfaffenhofen and Leipzig. We are looking forward to welcoming them and to enrich our team with a youthful spirit,” says Dave Jackson, CEO of Deutsche Aircraft.

With applications due to open in October 2021, the first intake will enrol four students and is expected to start in September 2022.
