Precision Air launches Apprenticeship Programme



Precision Air Services PLC has launched an apprenticeship programme for young aircraft technicians as part of efforts to combat scarcity of licenced aircraft engineers in the Tanzanian market. 

The airline says the programme is also aimed at developing needed skills for its technical unit through field attachment, volunteering and apprenticeship. 

In the first intake of the programme, the company has recruited 22 candidates who will undergo on the job training at the engineering and maintenance department.

Precision Air managing director Sauda Rajab said finding needed skills in the aviation industry in Tanzania is one of the biggest challenges, which the firm, as one of the industry players, cannot sit back and complain.

“That is the reason we had to come up with the programme to help find solutions for the benefit of the industry. We are proud of our contribution in developing needed skills in the aviation industry in Tanzania. Our aim is to develop as many licenced engineers as possible to meet our skills demands and for the industry as well,” she said. 

She pointed out that it takes about eight years to develop a fully trained, licenced engineer. 

“I expect other players will take similar initiatives instead of relying on expatriates alone…That way, we can strengthen the industry and help create employment for the youth.” 

In 2017, the airline signed a skills development agreement with the National Institute of Transport to host students who pursue different courses at the institute for practical training, with the possibility of permanent employment based on their performance during the internship and apprenticeship programmes. 

So far Precision Air has trained a total of 33 interns since the inception of the programme.

Fastjet yajiandaa kupokea ndege yake,ATR72-600.

Shirika la ndege la fastjet linatarajia kupokea ndege yake aina ya ATR72-600 hivi karibuni. Kwa mujibu wa mtandao wa Skyliner Aviation,ndege hiyo inaonekana ikiwa tayari imeshapakwa rangi za fastjet, na taarifa zinasema inatarajiwa kusajiliwa Tanzania na kuanza kazi katika mwezi wa januari 2018.
Fastjet wanasema ATR itawawezesha kutua katika maeneo ambayo ndege aina ya jet haziwezi kutua.
Kwa maana hiyo sasa fastjet wataweza kutua katika viwanja kama vile Mtwara, Kigoma, Tabora, Arusha na kwingine kule ambapo ATR72 inaweza kutua kwa usalama.

Picha kwa hisani ya mtandao wa Skyliner.
Ndege za ATR si ngeni hapa nchini kwani shirika la ndege la Precision Air linamiliki kiasi kikubwa cha ndege hizo, takribani ndege 9 zikiwa ni ATR72 na ATR42, na ni miongoni mwa mashirika yanayo ongoza barani Afrika kwa kuwa na idadi kubwa ya ATR, na pia ina karakana yake ya ufundi ambayo imebobea katika ufundi na matengenezo ya ndege hizi za ATR.
ATR72 ina uwezo wa kubeba abiri kati ya 72 hadi 78.
Tutarajie kuona ushindani zaidi katika soko la usafiri wa anga jambo ambalo linaweza leta unafuu kwa watumiaji wa usafiri huo na pia kuwa ni chachu ya kuongeza ajira na maslahi kwa wafanya kazi ktk sekta hii.
