BAS Aircraft Engineering Training Center (BAETC) has partnered with Gulf Air, in which Gulf Air’s Technical Affairs Division will equip BAETC students with the maintenance experience required to complete the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) Part 66 License. The agreement aims to bolster the competency and skill sets of Bahraini talents, particularly focusing on the development and empowerment of future aircraft engineers within a rapidly growing aircraft engineering and maintenance industry world-wide.

Under the agreement, Gulf Air will provide BAETC students with essential maintenance experience across several batches. The students will gain the expertise by participating in maintenance activities carried out by the Gulf Air Technical Division, which will include Line Maintenance, Base Maintenance, and Workshop Maintenance to complete their EASA Part 66 Modules. On the occasion, a delegation from Gulf Air’s Technical Affairs Division and the BAS management team conducted an orientation visit to the Center. This induction program signifies the beginning of the project, which is anticipated to last for the next two years.

On his end, Mr. Mazin Saleh, Chief Technical Officer at Gulf Air, expressed: “We are delighted to be working alongside BAETC to equip their students with the skills they need to navigate the industry and prepare them for their EASA Part 66 License. Our partnership agreement with BAETC will serve to strengthen our well-established business ties with BAS, as we continue to invest in the training of future Bahraini aviation engineering and maintenance professionals.”
