It is important from the outset to plan and cost your current but also future requirements and in most cases ensure an MRO centre can become a long-term profitable company – in many cases it is ideal to incorporate an International Aviation Engineers Academy (EASA 147) – teaching new engineers to International standards from leaving school to degree level.
