Air Astana Opens Training Centre for Engineers in Almaty
Air Astana has opened a training centre for engineers in Almaty, with certification to EASA P147 standards by both the Kazakh and European aviation authorities. Training programmes are offered in 26 specialist engineering disciplines, together with a full course on Airbus A320 maintenance.
The new training centre eliminates the need for Air Astana to send engineers overseas for training and is also open to candidates from other carriers in Kazakhstan and the rest of the CIS. The centre is the only one of its type in Central Asia and one of only five centres in the CIS to be certified by European aviation authorities.
The opening of the centre marks another important step towards Air Astana opening an Aviation School in Astana in the future , which will offer training courses for engineers at all levels.
