building experience in Ireland

Post by peteport » Fri Jun 15, 2012 4:02 pm

Hi Guys,

Just a quick question in regards increasing maintenance experience. I'm Currently a heli Techie with a FAS qualification but with like to expand my horizons to other both small to medium fixed and rotary wing.
Does everywhere require easa's or A&P's to allow you to build up experience or are there some places that would be willing to take me under their wing (excuse the pun). Obviously signing out aircraft and asking for wages would be out of the question but its just the experience that would be the most valuable part.

Thanks guys

Think most maintenance places take people on for building experience even if they never advertise it. If you seem like a handy chap and are no load to carry then there are always lots of tasks to be done around the hangar. Try them all, offer a no strings day and see how it goes. Can't see it being an issue to get an "in" somewhere. :)
