Dublin Aerospace Apprenticeships 2022

Dublin Aerospace has launched their 2022 apprenticeship programmes, the Aircraft Mechanic Apprenticeship and the MAMF Apprenticeship.

Aircraft Mechanics inspect, maintain and repair airframe structures, engines, electrical and avionics systems. There is also a large amount of sheet metal repairs and corrosion removal on airframes during checks. Dublin Aerospace carry out heavy Base Maintenance C – checks on a broad range of aircraft. The main aircraft types they carry out maintenance and repairs to are from the Boeing and Airbus families.

The work is dynamic and highly regulated, both nationally and internationally. It is a worthwhile career that you can progress in quickly, there is always something new to learn as aircraft maintenance manuals and regulations are constantly being updated, as well as new aircraft types to gain experience on.

Mechanical Automation and Maintenance Fitter (MAMF) Technicians carry out maintenance and repair of aircraft parts/components. They work on specialised machines and equipment in a workshop environment. The work also involves plant and machinery installation. One of the unique aspects of the role is you get to create; the MAMF Technician’s role includes the fabrication of replacement parts using machine tools such as lathes, milling machines and grinders.

The work is diverse and highly regulated, both nationally and internationally. From this career, you can progress within the aviation industry or chose to pursue a career path in other related industries such as pharmaceuticals, manufacturing or general engineering for example.
