From around 500 applicants who we see each year, to have secured a position on the scheme is in itself an achievement.
“These now fully trained aircraft engineers are a credit to their families, those who have worked so hard to train them, and of course Monarch Aircraft Engineering where our apprenticeship scheme is industry renowned for producing the best.”
