Pennant Australasia was recently delighted to announce the partnership with RDA Hunter to support the development of the aviation workforce in Williamtown.
On the 14th November a formal ceremony was held at Fighter World which celebrated Pennant handing over three Generic Hand-skills Trainers. Twelve high school teachers and two TAFE NSW trainers had a Professional Development day to assist in the training delivery for 2020 and future years.
Genskill is a part task trainer providing experience through practical exercises for hand skills necessary to work on aircraft components in confined spaces accessed through panels on a replicated aircraft fuselage. The access panels are secured with a variety of different types of aircraft fasteners – quick release cam lock, toggle, torque, and security bolts.
Pennant Australasia’s Support and Business Development Manager, Stavros Tsolakides said, “We are very pleased to be working with RDA Hunter to promote aeroskills trades in the Hunter region. Our GenSkill devices provide engaging, practical, hands-on training and is a tangible way for students to apply their skills. Our hope is that our equipment will help spark student interest in pursuing careers in the Hunter’s growing aerospace sector.”
