The British School of Aviation (BSA) is marking its re-opening by offering a complimentary place on its Boeing 787 Dreamliner Engineeer type-rating course.

The six-week-long course will be the first face to face training carried out by the school since February.

BSA is based at London Luton and normally operates courses with an intake of 16 but these courses will operate on what it calls its “Seat9” low-density classroom configuration of just 9 students.

Matt Harvey, BSA’s Chief Executive Officer said: “As the aviation industry enters the recovery phase from the Covid-19 pandemic, the need for qualified professionals to ensure the safety of aircraft fleets returning to the skies has never been greater in the history of commercial flight.

“By taking the necessary steps to protect the health of students and staff, BSA can continue to deliver its world-class training. Our ‘Seat 9’ concept is designed to send a clear message to our airline and MRO colleagues that BSA is ready to support them with innovative and cost-efficient outsourced solutions to the training and certification requirement of frontline personnel.

“Over the coming months, we will also be introducing a range of distance learning B1/B2 modules, as well as an engineering maintenance apprenticeship programme, which forms part of our strategy to deliver a wider range of career opportunities in aviation.”

Licensed B1/B2 engineers living in the UK can apply for the course by sending a personal statement of up to 500 words on why they should be awarded the complimentary place to [email protected].

Applications will be judged on merit by BSA’s four founding directors and the successful applicant will be notified by BSA no later than Friday 26 June.
