Monarch Aircraft Engineering (MAEL) has opened a brand new state-of-the-art training facility, Monarch Aircraft Engineering Training Academy (MAETA). Based at London Luton Airport, the training academy has undergone a complete refurbishment providing several new theatre style classrooms and facilities for Composite and Fibre optic training, a technology that is now being employed on next generation aircraft.

Mick Adams, managing director said: "This well-equipped learning centre will also house the apprenticeship training scheme. MAETA has been involved with apprentice training for over 40 years and continues to uphold its reputation for producing high calibre engineers for the industry. In fact in 2012 the academy enrolled its 700th apprentice to be trained."
