You will learn that maintenance is more than just replacing components or troubleshooting. In fact, it plays a major part in the entire lifecycle of an aircraft. Before an engineer’s pen touches the drawing board he must have answered a myriad of questions concerning the accessibility of areas and components for inspection, testing, adjustments, replacement or removal.
At the end of this programme, you will have gained an insight into the world of aerospace through introductions to subjects like aviation legislation (certification), human factors (attitude and behaviour) and spare parts management.
The province of North Brabant is both home to Avans and to five airbases, the headquarters of the Royal Netherlands Air Force and more than 25 aircraft or aircraft component-related businesses. As a consequence, there is a great need for technically trained people in the aviation sector.
