With both theory and practical courses, full type rating and differences training among them, Heston MRO is keeping abreast with current technology and maintaining the already high skill levels and productivity of its Engineers. With these state-of-the-art aircraft type ratings, Heston MRO is enhancing its ability to meet the demands of its airline customers in this post-Covid era of global international air travel.

The CASA Part 147 approval includes capability to deliver theory training via virtual classrooms making this a cost-effective option for interstate and international students and enables remote students to enjoy the same interactive experience as those located in a physical classroom.
