Certificate II - Aircraft Line Maintenance
A big thanks to Mr Rob Hyland from Bundaberg Aviation, in partnership with Skills Compliance, to have four Year 10 students completing Cert II courses in Aircraft Line Maintenance.
Harry was kind enough to report on the year at the Airport.
In our course, we had the opportunity to participate in all kinds of aspects of the aviation industry at the Bundaberg Regional Airport. Every Wednesday Joel Johnston (absent), Alistair Wilson, Jack Hickey and I would get bussed from school to the Air Queensland building where we would complete our online work sessions or do our practical hands-on work. The online sessions sometimes could get tedious but were definitely very easy and we received lots of help in class and at home from the Skills Compliance team.
The practical lessons and the excursions around the airport were the best part of the course. We we fortunate enough to work on light aircraft, from the landing gear to the avionics in the cockpit. We also got lots of opportunities to visit aviation companies and different sections of a working airport. Some of these places were the Jabiru manufacturing facility and the Life Flight Team and their new Helicopter.
Overall the course was very interesting and we learned lots from it. Furthermore, we earned 4 points towards our QCE. We look forward to expanding our knowledge in the Cert III Drone Licence Course in 2019. Please speak with me if you’re considering this great initiative.
