Malaysia Airlines is currently accepting applications from interested candidates, especially Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (SPM) leavers, to become aircraft engineers.

The national carrier will be offering various technical aircraft engineering courses to those seeking to be aviation maintenance personnel.

Malaysia Airlines Group chief operations officer Ahmad Luqman Md Azmi said this move will ensure a steady future workforce for the sustainable growth of the industry.

"As the national carrier of Malaysia and a regional market leader, it is an honour to play our part in developing a trained and skilled workforce to ensure a steady talent pipeline for years to come for the sustainable growth of the industry.

"We are excited to develop and nurture new talents and our future aviators to be part of the aviation ecosystem," he said in a statement.

Ahmad Luqman added that Malaysia Airlines has a great track record in producing high caliber aviation engineers and technicians.

"As an approved maintenance and training organisation by the Civil Aviation Authority Malaysia (CAAM), our engineers and technicians are sought after by other airlines not only in Malaysia but even abroad.

The training is expected to fuel demand for the aviation sector in the near future.

"Today, we have over 400 aircraft registered in Malaysia, and we are expecting this number to grow in the next five years, which makes the demand for future talents," Ahmad Luqman explained.

The training caters for introductory and aircraft type courses for a wide range of aircraft types, including Viking DHC6-400, ATR72-500, B737-600/700/800/900, A320 families, A330, A350 and A380.

Registration for this year’s intake is opened until July 15 to those between 18 and 26.

Interested candidates must meet the minimum requirement of having an SPM certificate with a credit for English and Science subjects, pass Bahasa Malaysia; and be medically fit.
