Bangkok (NNT/VNA) - Four agencies are expediting the production of skilled workers with expertise in aviation mechanics.

The Ministry of Transport has sought cooperation from Airbus, Triumph Aviation Services Asia, Triumph Structures (Thailand), and Senior Aerospace (Thailand) to launch four training courses, described as aircraft maintenance, aviation communication, aviation structural mechanics, and ground equipment maintenance, hoping to produce 350 skilled technicians on a yearly basis by 2021.

At present, the country is only able to train 180 aviation technicians a year.

The move is intended to support the expansion of U-Tapao Airport and the construction of an aircraft maintenance and repair center in the Eastern Economic Corridor (EEC). - NNT/VNA
