Aviation Australia students help LifeFlight engineers

AA students

AA students in action working on a LifeFlight rescue helicopter

LifeFlight Engineering recently hosted five Aviation Australia (AA) engineering students as part of the collaboration between LFA and AA to provide work experience for industry’s future aircraft maintenance engineers.

All five students have completed most of their theory towards gaining a Certificate IV in Aeroskills and took up the opportunity to work with LifeFlight engineers at Archerfield Heavy Maintenance to gain an insight of LFA’s maintenance operation.

VH-XCY, one of LFA’s Bell 412 rescue helicopters is currently undergoing a major service including a repaint. The students were put to good use to help prepare the Bell 412 tail boom and fuselage for painting. Ten additional hands made short work of sanding the aircraft surface.

The students were able to chat with LFA ex and current apprentices, also studying at AA, to share experiences about their studies and pathway to becoming a Licenced Aircraft Maintenance Engineer.

Aviation Australia would like to thank LifeFlight for providing the work experience opportunity to our students who were able to gain valuable insight from the experience.
