Over the last few years, we have been working hard to bring on board people who are striving to achieve great things in the UAV industry.
Thanks to partnerships with the likes of the Aviation Technical Training School, we have been training fully qualified people in areas including flight maintenance and avionics systems.
The Aviation Technical Training school is a university college specialising in helicopter technicians (Kat B1) and aeronautical engineers who work in maintenance organisations and perform repairs and supervision of aircraft. The education programme is in three parts: theory teaching, internships and learning at work. In addition to this, a degree project is included. The training is regulated by EU legislation within the European aviation regulations. After completing the approved training and internship, students achieve a certification that is recognised throughout Europe.
Over the last two years, we have recruited 10 students from the Aviation Technical Training School, including Pontus Johansson.
“I spent two years studying to become a technician at the school, which I thoroughly enjoyed as it provided me with the tools required to take up my desired career in aviation. When I was offered a position with UMS SKELDAR, I jumped at the chance to join one of the world’s fastest growing UAV organisations. Overall, my role involves helping to manufacture the pioneering SKELDAR V-200, installing the avionics systems and mainframe. It is fantastic to be able to put what I have learnt into practice.”
