AIR Niugini revived its Aircraft Maintenance Engineer Cadet Scheme four years ago.
It’s an intensive recruitment and selection process considers those within the age of 18-25 with a minimum of Grade 12 education with an A or B passes in Physics, Applied Maths, Maths A, Applied English and or PETT certification.
The scheme is a four-year programme and aims to develop young engineers into becoming licensed engineers by utilising overseas training with Air New Zealand.
The successful candidates will spend four years training with Air New Zealand’s Aviation Institute with final outcome being European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) basic license.
Currently, Air Niugini has 39 cadets, including six women, training in New Zealand.
Recently (25/03/2015), three young men and a woman were selected and left for studies at the Air New Zealand Aviation Institute in Christchurch, New Zealand.
